April 6, 2011 |

The Davis Art Center is offering two five-week introductory art courses on Wednesday evenings starting April 13.

“Introduction to Drawing” will meet from 6 to 7:30 p.m., with “Introduction to Painting” meeting directly afterwards from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Both courses are tailored to beginners ages 13 through adult.

“Intro to Drawing” students will explore the basics, such as line, shape and shadow, giving them the opportunity to experiment with different materials and techniques. “Intro to Painting” will cover basic color theory and color mixing while introducing a variety of approaches and concepts.

Each class is $70 for members of the Davis Art Center and $80 for nonmembers. Local artist Stacey Vetter is the instructor.

To enroll, stop by the Davis Art Center at 1919 F St., call (530) 756-4100 or register online at

The Davis High Band program will offer a pair of free concerts to thank community members for their support of music education and encourage the passage of Measure A.

The performance at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, April 17, will feature the Davis High Jazz Band, recently back from the Monterey Next Generation Jazz Festival, as well as music by student Jazz Combo groups.

At 7:30 p.m Tuesday, April 19, the Davis High Symphonic Band will share the stage with bands from Emerson, Holmes and Harper junior high schools at the Secondary Concert. The Tuesday concert will feature selections from “Riverdance,” featuring a cast of more than 40 drummers.

Taylor Swift tribute comes to Woodland

The Woodland Opera House will present Kaylee Starr in “Swift Country — a Tribute to Taylor Swift,” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 23. The Opera House is at 340 Second St. in downtown Woodland.

“With striking similarities to Swift both physically and vocally, Starr is at home performing this tribute concert to the Grammy Award-winning country diva,” a news release said. Starr will cover Swift’s hits, including “Love Story,” “Tim McGraw,” “Teardrops on My Guitar,” “White Horse” and “The Story of Us.”

Performing with Starr is the Swift Country band: Jeff Poppinga, Kyle Poppinga, Carson Mitchell, Cole Martin and Casey Doss.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for youths 17 and under, available at, (530) 666-9617 and at the box office.

Auditions set for Winters play

The Winters Theatre Company will hold auditions for “I’m Getting Married in the Morning,” by Lee Mueller, on April 19 and 20 at the Winters Community Center, 201 Railroad Ave. Performance dates are May 20 and 21.

Auditions will begin at 7:30 p.m. both evenings and will consist of cold readings from the script. A cast of seven men and five women will be selected.

The play is set at a wedding reception, which turns into a murder mystery when one of the guests falls dead on the dance floor from a gun shot wound.

For more information, call Linda Glick at (530) 795-3683.
