November is National Adoption Month @ Dr. Dianne Van Hook University Center at COC, Room 222,
Nov 18 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Be a Part of National Adoption Month
Attend a Children’s Bureau Info Meeting to Learn More about Foster-Adoption Nov. 18th

November is National Adoption Month, a celebration to bring awareness and attention to the need for permanent families for children and youth in the U.S. foster care system. Since 2000, Children’s Bureau has finalized more than 1,800 adoptions of vulnerable children in Southern California and continues to promote the need for resource parents through its Be the Reason recruitment campaign seen on outdoor ad space and online.

In Los Angeles County, the foster care population exceeds 21,000 children with 500 of those foster children waiting for an adoptive family. While Children’s Bureau places more than 300 at-risk children in loving foster homes and finalizes 100 adoptions annually, the need continues for more individuals and/or families to become resource parents. Resource parents (foster and adoptive) are people who are concerned about the well-being of children and their families. Resource parents protect and nurture children, meet children’s developmental needs, support children’s relationships with their birth families and do all of this as a member of a professional team.

“Children’s Bureau turns away at least 50 calls a day because we don’t have enough resource families to meet the demanding need,” said Amy Heilman, Children’s Bureau’s Director of Foster Care and Adoption.

Children’s Bureau welcomes every individual regardless of race, age, religion, disability, marital status, ethnic background, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression to become a resource for children. Qualifying families receive training and support throughout their journey. Discover if you have the willingness, ability and resources to take on the challenge of helping a child in need. A monthly information meeting is being held Saturday, November 18, 2017 from 10:00 AM to Noon at College of the Canyons, Dr. Dianne G. Van Hook University Center, Room 222, 26455 Rockwell Canyon Road, Santa Clarita, CA 91355. To R.S.V.P. or for more information, please call 661.208.4212, email us at RFrecruitment@all4kids.org or visit us at https://www.all4kids.org/program/foster-care/.

ABOUT CHILDREN’S BUREAU
Since 1904, Children’s Bureau (www.all4kids.org) has been a nonprofit leader in the prevention and treatment of child abuse and neglect. More than 30,000 children and families are helped each year throughout Southern California with services that include school readiness, parenting classes, family resource centers, support groups, mental health counseling, foster care and adoption. Children’s Bureau is one of the largest investors in child abuse prevention in the country and is developing a national model to transform an entire at-risk community through its Magnolia Community Initiative.

Nov 19 @ 11:00 am – 4:00 pm

The Williams S. Hart Museum located in Hart Park in Santa Clarita will host an Open House, “Exploring the Art at Hart,” on Sunday, November 19, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Event attendees of all ages will have the opportunity to explore how artists worked and participate in hands-on activities focused on painting and sculpture.

Hart Museum administrator, Margi Bertram, says “Santa Clarita’s famous historical figure and silent film star, William S. Hart, had a great eye for art and acquired an impressive collection containing excellent examples of Western art. The Museum will be honoring this interest by opening up the Mansion for a variety of free art related activities for the public.”

At the event, museum staff will provide information about what to look for when viewing art and explain how and why many of the art works in the Mansion tell stories. There will be hands-on activities where one can learn about and practice some of the techniques used by artists to achieve an artistic effect.

One activity will focus on figuring out if a particular painting is real or a fake. Common features in paintings by one of Hart’s favorite Western artists, Charles M. Russell will be shared and participants will be asked for help in analyzing a painting to figure out, “Is this a real Russell? Why or why not?”

Other activity stations will include watercolor painting techniques, live model sketching, and molding wax figures. There will be an artwork bingo game played inside Hart Mansion. The Mansion will be open for exploration between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.

The William S. Hart Mansion is located at the top of the hill in Hart Park in Santa Clarita. Parking passes for the lot behind the Mansion are available for those individuals unable to walk up the nature trail to the Mansion. A pass may be obtained at the Hart Park Office, Trading Post, or by calling the Museum at 661-254-4584.

If you would like more information about this event, please contact the Hart Museum at 661-254-4584.

GO Jazz Big Band Presents 1917: The Year that Changed the Course of Jazz History @ West Ranch High School Theater
Nov 19 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

It wasn’t there—and then suddenly it was.

It’s true: the uniquely American art form we call jazz didn’t grow and evolve slowly. One moment America was still rural and largely Victorian culturally; the next she had fought in a world war and was exporting the Jazz Age worldwide. It was like Edison switching on the light: in 1917 jazz found its way onto Edison’s invention, the phonograph, and within a decade that raucous beat had taken over the world.

The GO Jazz Big Band invites you to join us as we look at 1917: The Year that Changed the Course of Jazz History. You’ll hear a live rendition the very earliest commercial jazz recording form 1917, Livery Stable Blues, by the Original Dixieland Jazz Band—but you’ll also hear music from Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, Buddy Rich, and other giants of American music, all born in the watershed year 1917.

The band’s special guest for this event is popular jazz vocalist Sara Gazarek, whom the LA Times says has “a remarkable capacity to transform everything she sings into the rhythmic swing and inventive phrasing that is the heart of the jazz vocal art.” Along with Sara’s interpretations of Ella, GO Jazz vocalist Steve Lively will offer his take on a Dizzy Gillespie favorite and a Dean Martin classic. And of course the whole band will tear through the timeless standards of Monk, Dizzy, and Buddy with their customary ferocity.

1917: The Year that Changed the Course of Jazz History with the GO Jazz Big Band happens on Sunday, November 19, at 3pm at the West Ranch High School Theater. General admission is $10, seniors $5, and as always students are free. Check out the band’s website, GOJazzBigBand.com for more information.

SCAA Art Demo: Pastel Over Watercolor @ Barnes and Noble Booksellers
Nov 20 @ 6:30 pm

Pastel-Over-Watercolor Demo at Barnes & Noble

David Wolfram will demonstrate pastel-over-watercolor painting at the Santa Clarita Artists Association (SCAA) meeting on Monday evening,­­­­­­­­ Nov. 20 at 6:30 pm. This event is free, open to the public and meets at 6:30 pm at Barnes & Noble, 23630 Valencia Blvd.

Wolfram was employed for almost 22 years as a toy designer and Design Manager at Mattel Inc. After leaving corporate life, and inspired by the California Impressionists, he began expressing himself as a fine artist.

“I am greatly inspired by the changing qualities of light during the day, and how different conditions affect color. My favorite times of day are sunup and the ‘magic moment’ of intense color just before sunset; and I try to capture these times in many of my paintings. I find that I am drawn to situations that contrast bold areas of light and shadow, as well as colors and reflections in water,” said Wolfram.

Artist David Wolfram. Courtesy photo

“Currently I divide my painting time between working in oils and pastels, and I like to paint, whenever possible, en plein air. I feel that painting outdoors is an essential activity for me, because it attunes my eye to the ever-changing light and atmospheric conditions that influence color. I can then take this acquired knowledge into the studio to give that work more veracity,” said Wolfram. See: www.davidwolframart.com

A founding board member and studio artist at Destination: Art, an art co-op in old Torrance, he also teaches, does workshops, demos and judges shows for Southern California art groups.

“Please stop by my studio, and to see the work of a number of excellent South Bay artists.” See: http://destinationartsouthbay.blogspot.com/p/front.html.

Wolfram was born in Buffalo, NY; and moved to California in 1975. He graduated With Distinction from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena in 1985 with a BA in Illustration.

CBS Film Series presents Dreaming of a Jewish Christmas @ Congregation Beth Shalom
Dec 3 @ 11:30 am

Unbelievably Entertaining!! Where else can you see dancing and singing Chinese waiters!

Believe it or not, all of those beautiful Christmas songs that we hear year after year were written by Jewish songwriters.

Set almost entirely in a Chinese restaurant, Dreaming of a Jewish Christmas is an offbeat, irreverent musical documentary that tells the story of a group of Jewish songwriters, including Irving Berlin and Mel Tormé who wrote the soundtrack to Christianity’s most musical holiday. It’s an amazing tale of immigrant outsiders being accepted as important players in American pop culture.

With interviews by Jackie Mason, Alan Dershowitz, and a blend of musicians, comedians and experts, Dreaming of a Jewish Christmas is all about pure joy and celebration of the human spirit, infused with humor and the history behind your favorite Christmas carols.

**For example, the hit carol Do You Hear What I Hear? (which tells the story of the nativity) written by married couple Gloria Shayne Baker and Noel Regney, was a plea for peace during the 1962 Cuban missile crisis.**

Sunday, December 3rd @ 11:30 a.m.
$5 per ticket includes
Lunch & Popcorn (sponsored by Penni Perrault)

Second is our first performance with a choir as we welcome the Valencia High School Choir to our stage. Third is the culmination the of journey of our Music Director, Jeffrey Gilbert, to achieve his Master of Music degree from California State University at Northridge.

The program for the concert is a celebration of song. Starting with “Finlandia” by Jean Sibelius, composed in 1899, as a covert protest against increasing censorship from the Russian Empire. Following Sibelius, enjoy the melodious Symphony No. 2 by Howard Hanson. This piece is also known as the Romantic Symphony, which was composed in 1930 for the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. After intermission, the orchestra will be joined by the Valencia High School Choir for holiday inspired selections. “Consecrate the Place and Day” by Z. Randall Stroope offers a heraldic call for joy and harmony. “Glow” by Eric Whitacre was composed in 2013 for the World of Color – Winter Dreams Show which premiered at Disney California Adventure. “O Magnum Mysterium” by Mark Miller is a responsive chant from the Matins of Christmas. The final piece, “Magnificat” by Kevin Memley creates a stunningly beautiful and new sound.
