Franklin Cultural Council Presents “The Creativity Curator”, Jacqueline Volpe

Explore the medium and techniques of a featured artist and create your own piece in each one-hour session. These are free to the public.

Join Jacqueline Volpe, noted Franklin artist, each Monday in April as she leads us on a journey to explore the creative process of four very different artists:

April 5—El Anatsui, a Nigerian based artist whose sculptures are flexible and can be reshaped. His work is done in clay, wood, metal and most recently discarded bottle caps.

April 12—Elizabeth Murray, a painter and sculpture who bridged the Cubist movement and Pop Surrealism. She used color, mosaics and twisting and warping her canvases to create vibrant art, with a bit of whimsy. 

April 19—William Wegman, photographer and painter, whose unique compositions feature dogs, most notably his own Weimaraners, in costumes and poses

April 26—Katharina Grosse, a German artist, who uses her surroundings (natural and man-made) to create pieces which are colorful and large-scale often running from ceiling to floor or the length of a building.

Each class will provide information on the artist, his/her personality, style and technique.  With this as background, each participant will have the opportunity to create his/her own do-it-yourself art project at home with materials easily found in your home or in the local supermarket, or local art/general stores. A list of necessary supplies will be posted on Ms. Volpe’s website: https://www.thecreativitycurator.com.   No special skills or art experience is required.

This series of Monday Night Masterclasses are geared to young adults and adults. Each Monday night session will begin at 7:30 PM and are conducted via Zoom. 

Participants must pre-register on the Franklin Cultural Council’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/FranklinCulturalCounciland will receive the link in a follow-up email.

After Clay completed his freshman year at Pennsylvania State University studying Musical Theatre, Clay toured the U.S, Canada, and Japan with the Broadway First National Tour of West Side Story as A-rab. Soon after returning from tour, he made his Broadway debut in Disney's Newsies, playing Spot Conlon. After that, he was cast in the Original Broadway cast of Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical.

In 2014, Clay left Matilda to perform in New York City Center Encores' productions of Little Me and The Most Happy Fella. Clay has also made numerous television appearances, performing on shows such as Dancing with the Stars, The 2013 TONY Awards, The 2012 and 2013 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, The Late Show with David Letterman, The View, Good Morning America, Good Afternoon America, and more.

FSPA Students Learn from Broadway Stars in NYC

Over MLK Weekend, students from the Franklin School for the Performing Arts (FSPA) traveled to New York City to study with Broadway professionals. FSPA Musical Theater students of all ages took Song Interpretation, Monologue, and Theater Dance classes with Broadway stars, casting directors, and agents, while FSPA Dance students took classes at the world-renowned Broadway Dance Center. This trip has been an annual offering for FSPA students since 2008.

The instructors for this year’s master class weekend included Tony Award nominees Jenn Colella (Come From Away, If/Then, Chaplin) and Alexander Gemignani (Carousel, Hamilton, Chicago, Violet, Sweeney Todd, etc.), Broadway performers Darlesia Cearcy (Once on This Island, Shuffle Along, The Color Purple, The Book of Mormon, Ragtime), Christopher Rice (The Book of Mormon, Jack Kelly in Disney’s Newsies with the Franklin Performing Arts Company), Clay Thomson (Wicked, Disney’s Newsies, King Kong, Matilda), Tyler Haynes (Cats, Hairspray, Oklahoma, The Boy from Oz), Tyrick Wiltez Jones (Hairspray, Finian’s Rainbow), Andi Hopkins (Nat’l Tour of Dreamgirls), and NY Casting Director Bob Cline. 

The weekend concluded with a showcase for a panel of staff from Broadway Artists Alliance as well as agent Greg Uliasz. From this showcase, some FSPA students will be selected to return to NYC in February to study at the Broadway Artists Alliance Winter Workshop.

The students also attended the Broadway show The Prom starring Tony Award winner, and frequent FSPA guest instructor, Beth Leavel. After the show, they were treated to a private question and answer session with Ms. Leavel. "I wish I had a Franklin School for the Performing Arts in my life when I was growing up,” says the Tony Award winner. “It's invaluable."

In addition to classes and shows, a tradition of FSPA’s annual New York City weekend is a dinner with FSPA alumni living and working in New York City. FSPA currently has alumni working on Broadway, off-Broadway, in National Tours, on film, TV, professional opera, and regional theater across the country.

For more information on programs at the Franklin School for the Performing Arts, visit www.fspaonline.com, call 508-528-8668, or stop by 38 Main Street in Franklin, MA. FSPA is currently offering an “All Access Pass” to new students which includes a free trial class as well as tickets to an upcoming performance.
