Class Description:

Have you ever wanted to sit down and play a tune on the piano for your family or friends? By the end of this class, you should be able to do just that. We’ll begin by using an open-source program called MuseScore. MuseScore helps teach you the notation needed to read music when you type in a song. There are also free apps available to help you out If you need to learn how to read notes. After you learn a bit doing a song or two with MuseScore, you should be ready to sit down at a keyboard to play a simple tune.

 

This class is for those who don’t know much about how to play. If you feel you fit into this category, then this class is for you. A laptop is recommended. Installation of MuseScore from musescore.org can be done beforehand, and is recommended, but is not required.

First Letterpress Class Held at i3!!!

i3 member Ashley hosted two classes to introduce the new (to i3) Letterpress. The press is a Line-O-Scribe Show Card Writer. The press was built sometime between 1920 and 1940 in Adrian MI.

The class demonstrated basic letterpress techniques and printing. The students picked a Valentine’s Day theme pattern to print. Then the pattern was reversed and carved into linoleum blocks. Different colored inks and paper card stock are picked to create hand made Valentine’s Day cards. The linoleum blocks are put on the press, ink rolled onto the block, and pressure applied to create beautiful cards.
