Fundamentals Oil and Acrylic Painting – There is a fundamental body of knowledge that all painters (beginning and advanced) should possess. This body of knowledge not only contains information on the techniques of drawing and painting; also information on the use, care, and safety of working with the tools of an artist. Designed to give both new and experienced painters the information they need to create beautiful paintings, focusing on creating the illusion of depth and volume using value and discussing color, the color wheel and complementary colors.

Richard studied illustration at Palomar College in San Marcos, CA and established his illustration business in Boston, MA. His fundamental belief about painting, shapes his work and his teaching: “Creating a painting does not make one an artist. Artists create something extraordinary from their experience, knowledge and ability. Until a painter has discovered and is able to pull instantly from these three primary conditions, he or she is a student. Still, taking pride in being a student moves you closer to creating art.”

Vocal Superstar Terry Barber to perform “Around the World in 80 Minutes” in Bonita Springs

Adobe Spark (4)

By: Mickey Lacroix

Terry Barber is in a class by himself. His natural vocal range places him in a rare class of singers known as “countertenors.” Countertenors have a range that is even higher than tenor, and they are quite rare. On Saturday, May 27, Terry Barber will grace the stage of the Hinman Auditorium at the Center for Performing Arts Bonita Springs, where he will perform, “Around the World in 80 Minutes.” This live performance will feature a selection of the most beloved songs from various locations all over the globe uniquely arranged by Emmy and Grammy-winning composers. With songs like Danny Boy, Besame Mucho, La Vie En Rose and Bridge Over Troubled Water, Terry will amaze the audience with the world’s favorite melodies spanning 10 different languages.

terry imageWhile Mr. Barber’s countertenor vocal range puts him in a class by himself, it should also be noted that he is one of the world’s most respected countertenors. He has made quite an impressive name for himself in the music industry. A graduate of Northwestern University, and London’s Trinity College of Music, Terry Barber is both a student of the historical significance of music, and is also well known for his grasp of languages. He is a voting member of the Grammy Awards, and serves on the advisory committee for Nelly’s “X’Treme Recording Institute.” Previously, he was a member of the Grammy-winning men’s chorus “Chanticleer” and was dubbed “the jewel in Chanticleer’s crown.”

In addition to providing backing vocals for Chaka Khan, Cyndi Lauper, Madonna, Steve Smith and many other popular artists, Terry is the founder of Artists for a Cause. Artists for a Cause is a very active non-profit based out of Palm City, Florida which focuses on using artists and performers to raise money and resources to address issues at the community level, such as hunger and mental illness. The organization benefits both “struggling artists” and the communities in which it is active.

Tickets to see Terry Barber on Saturday, May 27, can be purchased at http://www.artcenterbonita.org by calling the Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs at 239-495-8989, or in person at the Center for Performing Arts Bonita Springs, located just west of Old 41 Road on Bonita Beach Rd.
