Artists’ workshops to explore light and color, music for film and television

The N.H. State Council on the Arts is presenting two new workshops as part of its Artist Entrepreneurial Workshop series.

“The Art & Science of Light & Color for the Artist,” led by interdisciplinary artist and educator R.P. Hale, will explore the science behind light and color theory and how they can influence the important decisions artists make when creating artwork, lighting a studio or work space, and displaying artwork in exhibit and gallery spaces.

During “Your Music as Film Score,” local musicians who have composed for film and television will explain the basics of film production. Attendees will also learn about the creative process of film scoring, licensing and business issues, as well as how to find filmmakers and producers who might be interested in their work. The workshop is presented in partnership with the N.H. Film and Television office.

“The Art & Science of Light & Color for the Artist” takes place May 6, 2014, 10 a.m.-noon and “Your Music as Film Score” takes place May 27, 2014, 10 a.m.-noon. Both workshops will be held at Plymouth State University’s College of Graduate Studies, 2 Pillsbury St. in Concord.

There is no charge for the workshops and they are both open to the public, but advance registration is required. For more information and to register, visit

The New Hampshire State Council on the Arts is a publicly funded agency within the New Hampshire Department of Cultural Resources. It began in 1965 with legislation designed “to insure that the role of the arts in the life of our communities will continue to grow and play an ever more significant part in the education and welfare of our citizens.” Funding comes from state appropriations, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Conservation License Plate fund.
