An evening focused on the distant and mysterious "Dwarf" Planet,,, PLUTO as we will venture to grab a view of this faint object with our visual telescopes. That's right! Visual seeing of the tiny rock so far away, as it moves into Sagittarius we can perhaps get a glimpse of this rarely seen place in our solar system.
We will also be introducing a new program that will become part of our regular show where we go IDA dark for a laser tour of the night sky. This is inspired by the notion that more attention needs to be put on the environmental thoughts of how the International Dark-Sky Association has been fighting for quality night skies for over a quarter of a century. We will celebrate this organization and with that be making a very special announcement regarding them and our desert night skies.
Please drive SLOWLY in the Campground to keep dust low and remember your comforts and libations. We ask $5.00 at the door, though never turn anyone away. We do insist that pets be left at home. No pets please.
The focus of this camp is to have students develop a deep understanding of the use of color in a variety of media. The class will include practice and experimentation with color theory, examples from famous artists, and training using the tools of art for best results. By the end of the class each student will have created a portfolio of work in a variety of media and styles of art.
