 2017 fall painting—

(Wonderful World Of Floral & Still Life Painting)


From: Linda Howard

   This fall I will be guiding my students through the  WONDERFUL WORLD OF FLORAL AND STLL LIFE PAINTING.     (OIL’s)   The emphasis will be on COLOR, Understanding edge  quality and  Strong Focal Point.

   I will lecture, give demonstrations and you will spend lots of time mixing paint, practicing, learning and hopefully enjoying yourself.


Color: Common sense color mixing.  Understanding what happens to the local color on an object as it moves towards the light and descends towards shadow. ( what changes it goes through) Over the weeks  you will make reference  charts of various colors.

Colors for background, leaves, flowers.


Still life: Set up, props, materials, lighting.

Space is very limited because of the size of the room.  Each  student will have  table space for  easel and supplies.

To reserve your space contact Shauna Larson

(home phone) 801-756-9614) as soon as you can.

  Musical Theater and Acting classes


Calling all actors!

Highland City Arts Council is excited to announce a new semester of Musical Theater and Acting classes.  Do you get nervous when you audition?  Don’t know how to pick just the right piece for a show you’re auditioning for?  Want to nail some of those high notes you’re struggling with?  Have a monologue you want to perfect?  Or do you just need help speaking or appearing in front of audiences? 

My name is Marshall Madsen and I’m happy to help!  A native Utah resident, I just finished my time at UVU in their Musical Theater Performance BFA program.  I now teach theater, dance and film at Rockwell Charter High School, and accompany and teach for the Hale Center Theater in Orem, where I’ve been working as an actor for the last five years.  Teaching and theater are my passions and I’m excited to share them with the local community here in Highland.

This class for all ages focuses in on what makes an audition great, and some of the tricks of the trade to land a callback.  With fresh class courses and formats straight from New York, I’ve worked with some of the best and brightest from colleges around the state and learned from some of the most talented instructors in the nation to hone in on these materials.  Instructors like Jason Alexander, Sean Astin, Lisa O’Hare, Max Greenfield, Susan Stroman and Jeff Whiting to name a few.

Classes are on half hour sessions every Friday between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm starting September 1st and running till December 15th at the Highland Civic Center located at 5378 W 10400 N.


  Tuition is $375 for the full semester, including one master class per month.

For more information please contact Kathy Castleton at for registration and questions regarding enrollment or scheduling.


Thank you so much.  We look forward to seeing you soon.

We are pleased to announce the formation of a new Highland community choir, Highland Choral Arts. We have been fortunate to enlist the talents of Cathy Jolley, a renowned conductor.  This will be a yearlong choir with performances in the spring and Christmas season, with adjournment over the summer months.


Practices will be held at the Highland Community Center (old city office building, 5378 W 10400 N, Highland, UT 84003) Tuesdays from 8-9:30 pm.  A brief voice check will be done with each member to determine range, choir suitability, and section assignment.  You will NOT need to come with a prepared piece.


This will be a non-profit choir with yearly dues of $100 to offset music, venue rental, accompaniment, and conducting costs.  We anticipate a choir of up to 80 members.

 Please sign-up for a voice-check time at this link.
