Using blendable colored pencils create colorful maquettes (small models) of stained glass windows much in the way Louis Comfort Tiffany would have done in his glass studios! Then use your maquette to create a colorful tin journal the Tiffany stained glass way. The final result is stunning! Art Center Instructor Pat Johnson will guide students throughout the process. Students will study the UMMA Tiffany stained glass collection for inspiration. No experience necessary.

"The Dance on Camera Festival is one of those NY stealth events, prized by its devotees...where the allusiveness of dance meets the intimacy of film to create a new kind of magic." —New York Times.

Coming to Ann Arbor directly from Dance Films Association's 40th Dance On Camera Festival in New York City, this screening of screendance shorts, selected specifically for Ann Arbor audiences, celebrates the immediacy, energy, and mystery of dance as combined with the intimacy of film. DFA's Festival is the oldest dance film festival in the world and has sparked a global explosion of screendance activity.

The SMTD@UMMA performance series is made possible in part by the Katherine Tuck Enrichment Fund.
