OPEN STUDIOS Reception & Perfomance Might

It's happening again! The 4th opening night of the annual Dorchester Open Studios, produced by Dorchester Arts Collaborative. Dorchester Open Studios festivities will kick-off with a reception and evening of music, art and culture, on Friday October 24, 2014 at 6:30pm-9pm. The reception will take place from 6-6:30. The event will take place at the Black Box Theater at Codman Academy, where last year, Dorchester native folk singer, Bethel Steele, Boston Tap Company and Kevin Butram joined other great performers. We would love for you to be there!!!

OPEN STUDIOS Artists Workshops


In preparation for Open Studios 2014 the Dorchester Arts Collaborative is presenting a series of workshops to help artists get as much as possible out of their participation in the event.  Each workshop will run from 11:30am - 1:00pm and includes a light lunch.  Cost is $15 for each session or $30 for the whole series.  All sessions will be held at the air conditioned Erick Jean Center for the Arts at 157A Washington Street, one block south of Columbia Road in Dorchester.  The focus for each Saturday will be as follows:

September 20 – Promotion:  How to get prospective buyers to see your work with an emphasis on using social media.

September 27 – Pricing:  Finding the right balance between work that is affordable for the Open Studios audience and underestimating the value of your efforts.

October 4 – Presentation:  Designing your table to attract buyers and displaying your items for maximum impact.


What: Yoga 101: Back 2 Basics is an 8-week class series where those new to yoga and more experienced students can practice fundamental yoga poses, learn foundational yoga concepts, and explore yogic breathing exercises and meditation. Gather the building blocks you need to construct a yoga practice that can transform your mind, body and soul. [This is an all levels, all ages (adults) class taught in the classic hatha yoga style.]

When: Saturdays, 9:45 - 11a; September 6 - October 25, 2014 [We would probably arrive by 9:15a each week to set up, and be gone by 11:30a; as we discussed, we could hold a free info/demo session the weeks prior to the first class to generate interest in the class series and promote any events/initiatives the DAC is facilitating.]
Investment: Suggested donation of $5 - $10; proceeds support the launch of Earthseed Yoga's mobile studio to continue to offer free classes and workshops to underserved urban communities throughout Boston.
