Yard Work

- written by The Umbrella's 2017-2018 Artist-in-Residence, Elizabeth King

On my walks through the neighborhoods of Concord this month, I have developed an obsession with the way people maintain their yards.

I am interested in the fact that yard work is a solitary, yet communal pass time and no matter how well the task is done, it must be repeated again-usually weekly.

A visit to Kat O’Connor’s Watercolor Class

By Himani Parekh

The tables were arranged in a sort of oval and I was standing smack in the middle, peering curiously and a little shyly at their work. Around me the students of Kat O’Connor’s Technical Watercolor I Class were sketching, painting, mixing colors, and socializing, their voices converging and overlapping into a gentle hubbub that floated in the warm, bright space. A happy sound. A happy space.

“We don’t bite,” a woman assured me, “but we might crack some jokes!”

I smiled, relaxed a little. This was a welcoming place.
