The AAA School Safety Patrol Program guides and directs students, their families and schools to address road safety with the goal of reducing injuries and preventing deaths among 5-12 year olds.

School zone traffic causes concern for parents, their children, schools and the community. It is important for kids to learn proper pedestrian practices at a young age.

Safety Patrollers are students volunteers trained to direct pedestrians at school crossings, carpool areas and bus zones- they direct children, not traffic. Patrollers learn and practice road safety, leveraging this training to lead the way in keeping their fellow classmates and communities safer.

Andrew Smith is a firm believer in natural history, and his career has been marked by the ability to sit for long periods on rocks and in meadows watching pikas. His talk will compare the natural history of two pika species that are the same size and look alike, but which occupy distinctly different habitats:  the American pika living in rocks throughout the Intermontane West, and the Plateau pika that occupies the vast high grasslands of the Tibetan plateau. Dr. Smith will highlight the intriguing differences in their ecology and behavior, and then address important conservation issues concerning each species. The thrust of the talk is this—we need to understand the natural history of a species to properly engage in its conservation.
 
Dr. Smith, now retired, served on the faculty of life sciences at ASU for 39 years, and was awarded the rank of President’s Professor in 2010. Andrew is a conservation biologist whose work includes the behavioral ecology of mammals, effects of habitat fragmentation, and ecosystem services provided by small mammals. He primarily works in the mountains of western United States and on the Tibetan plateau. His research focuses on the pika, a small relative of rabbits. The American Society of Mammalogists chose Andrew as the recipient of its 2015 Aldo Leopold Conservation Award. In addition to publishing ~130 papers, his, “A Guide to the Mammals of China,” was the first comprehensive treatment of the 556 mammal species found in China and in 2018 he produced, “Lagomorphs: Pikas, Rabbits, and Hares of the World.”

From its revolutionary plot to its torrid production history, "God of Vengeance" is an astonishing play. In the century since Sholem Asch penned his tale of the spiritual at war with the carnal, the play has been admired, translated, parodied, criticized, banned, prosecuted, forgotten, revived, and celebrated. This storied production history inspired the play "Indecent," written by Paula Vogel and commissioned by Yale Repertory Theatre and American Revolutions: The United States History Cycle at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. FlagShakes is thrilled to present these beautiful plays in tandem so audience members can experience Asch’s "God of Vengeance" and the truly fascinating story of how this masterpiece impacted American history and theatre in "Indecent."

Jazz Fusion pianist and composer Dr. Kaveh Karandish performing live in Elks' Theatre.


Kaveh was born in 1976 in Shiraz; the Persian city of poetry & music. He started keyboard and piano studies at an early age. At age 17 he was deeply touched by the magical combination of piano, bass and drums of some contemporary recording and music became an important part of his life ever since. After years of classical piano as a teenager and winning numbers of piano competitions, he revealed his love and passion for creating by composing orchestral music with grandiose ambitions. After immigrating to California at age 23, he devoted much of his time to studying composition, orchestration & film music at different music institutions including Cal-state Long Beach.For more info please visitwww.kavehpiano.com.

Kaveh's brother Maz Karandish will be also featured in this concert. A multi instrumentalist from Santa Barbara, CA.
Maz Karandish is a devotee of music: A vocalist and multi-instrumentalist covering grounds from Raga, Maqam, and Dastgah to Harmony, Jazz, and Opera. He has been studying music from a very young age and has spent extensive time exploring world music within each of their respective traditions over the past two decades. Maz utilizes his voice in addition to about a dozen instruments to bring the
various forms of music to life. He is currently most active in exploring the sitar as it is expressed and understood within the Imdad-Khani tradition while maintaining his connection to his roots through Persian Classical and Folk music.


Sonia Ochoa is the dancer of the group. Plus Eric Zang and Farzin Farhadi. Two world class musicians on Cajon and Saxophone.

 Although most people are familiar with John Wesley Powell as the intrepid one-armed Civil War veteran who became the first European to explore the canyons of the Colorado and Green Rivers in 1869 and again in 1871-72, it is the work that Powell did following his epic journeys for which he truly should be famous.  Powell understood the challenges of life in a land of little water like few others of his time, and his ideas for settlement of this region were visionary.  As water becomes scarcer and more precious in the West, Powell's ideas may provide valuable guidance for water managers at all levels in the coming decades.  Join us as author and river guide Christa Sadler introduces Powell the man, the scientist, the explorer, and the policy maker from her new book, The Colorado.  Geology Talks is hosted by the Central Arizona Geology Club and presented with funding from the Friends of the Prescott Public Library.  This event includes an opportunity to ""show and tell"" and ask questions of Geology Club members.

From May 16 through June 25, 2019, the ’Tis Art Center and Gallery, in partnership with the Smoki Museum, will present Journeys in Spirit 2019: Traditional and Contemporary Native Art Exhibition. Entering its ninth year, the exhibit centers on showcasing the visual arts, music, dance and storytelling of and by Native people. This exciting cultural celebration will be held at 'Tis Art Center and Gallery, conveniently located across from Prescott’s Courthouse Plaza at 105 S. Cortez Street.

 

To celebrate the launch of Journeys in Spirit 2019, there will be an opening reception for the artists on May 24 from 5-8 p.m. Presented as part of Prescott’s popular 4th Friday Art Walk, the reception will feature Mike Goodluck performing on a Native flute. The weekend fun will continue at noon on Saturday May 25 and Sunday May 26 with flute music, storytelling and dazzling hoop dance, performed by World Champion Hoop Dancer Tony Duncan, his wife Violet and their young family.

 

Journeys in Spirit will spotlight emerging and established artists from various Native cultures, including the Acoma, Apache, Choctaw, Dine’, Hopi, Yaqui, Yavapai and Zuni. The arts play an integral role in Native society. Beginning at a young age, Native children are introduced to artistic mediums, including bead working, basketry, woodcarving, weaving, and metalworking, as well as the crafting of musical instruments and ceremonial attire. Color and imagery carry symbolic meaning in Native cultures, and music and dance are considered an essential aspect of social and ceremonial gatherings. Storytelling, the oldest of all the art forms, is used to keep alive cultural history and sacred beliefs. For many Native artists, inspiration is found in the stories, ceremonies and rituals that have been passed on to them across several generations, while others are influenced by their personal experiences in the modern world, both within and outside of their tribal communities.

 

Journeys in Spirit attendees will have the opportunity to view a wide variety of artistic mediums, ranging from basketry and bead working to sculpture and photography. Some works will reflect the traditional styles of Native cultures, while others will incorporate a contemporary aesthetic or a combination of old and new. Examples of works that will be on display include sculpture and paintings by the exhibit’s curator, Hopi artist Filmer Kewanyama, and paintings by acclaimed Choctaw artist Karen Clarkson. Regardless of the unique style or medium, all works showcased at Journeys in Spirit will reflect the artist’s personal stories and ongoing quest for discovery and knowledge.

There is little doubt among the pure rock community that the legendary band Queen and lead performer Freddie Mercury earn high ranks as one of the most powerful and iconic groups in rock history. Queen, the kings of arena rock, performed to packed stadiums around the globe for over two decades. Freddie took showmanship by a rock front man to a new untapped level and was undisputedly crowned the lord of arena rock. He mesmerized audiences with his charismatic energy and larger than life stage persona. Upon his death in 1991, a huge void was left in the rock concert world, which to this day has not yet been matched.

 

Queen Nation, a tribute to Queen, was formed in 2004. Queen Nation consists of: Gregory Finsley on vocals & keyboards as Freddie Mercury, Mike McManus on guitar as Brian May, Pete Burke on drums as Roger Taylor, and Parker Combs on bass as John Deacon. The mission of the show is to carry on the musical torch and pay homage to the golden age of vintage Queen concerts.

 

Queen Nation’s live 90-minute production of Queen’s greatest hits preserves the image, sound, and stage persona of vintage Queen. Audiences are amazed at the accuracy of Queen Nation’s live retrospective journey through such Queen songs as We Will Rock You – Bohemian Rhapsody – We Are The Champions – Crazy Little Thing Called Love – You’re My Best Friend – Another One Bites The Dust – Under Pressure and many more. They have performed in front of thousands of people at casinos, fairs, festivals and private affairs.

Love the One You’re With- A Salute to Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

Ancient Indian pictographs (rock paintings) and petroglyphs (symbols carved or pecked on rocks) are claimed by some to be forms of writing for which meanings are known.  However, are such claims supported by archaeology or by Native Americans themselves?  Mr. Dart illustrates southwestern petroglyphs and pictographs, and discusses how even the same rock art symbol may be interpreted differently from popular, scientific, and modern Native American perspectives.Registered Professional Archaeologist Allen Dart has worked in Arizona and New Mexico since 1975.  He is a state cultural resource specialist/archaeologist for the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service and volunteer director of Tucson's Old Pueblo Archaeology Center nonprofit organization, which he founded in 1993 to provide educational and scientific programs in archaeology, history, and cultures.  Al has received the Arizona Governor's Award in Public Archaeology, the Arizona Archaeological and Historical Society's Victor R. Stoner Award, and the Arizona Archaeological Society's Professional Archaeologist of the Year Award for his efforts to bring archaeology and history to the public.

World renowned blues/rock icon Carvin Jones, voted one of the greatest blues guitarist of all time by Guitarist magazine.

World renowned blues/rock icon Carvin Jones, voted one of the greatest blues guitarist of all time by Guitarist magazine.

Eric Clapton quote "Carvin Jones is a young cat out of Phoenix who I think is the next up-and-coming blues player."

" ...one of the best guitarists in the world " London Surrey News.

Carvin has released 4 LP's - What You Need (1999), The Carvinator (2008) and Victory is Mine (2014) and his new album release What a Good Day (2018). He has played countless festivals, made numerous television appearances and has received praise and recognition from some of the top artists in the blues world. He has pleased music fans worldwide with his high energy show and electrifying guitar style. He has shared the stage and toured with legends including BB King, Santana, Jeff Beck, Albert King, Albert Collins, The Animals, REO Speedwagon, Jimmy Vaughan, Double Trouble and many more. Carvin himself has performed with Joe Cocker and the Fabulous Thunderbirds. Carvin even performed in Iraq and Kuwait in 2011.

Prior to the current incarnation of the band, Carvin has a long 25 year history of success worldwide. The band currently averages around 330 live performances a year and have performed in 37 countries on 3 continents in 24 months.

They toured United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Belgium, Netherlands, France, Spain, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Italy.

2018 proved to be an epic year as the band had sold out tours in Canada, Spain, England, Scotland, Germany and Belgium in addition to completing their first ever American Hard Rock Cafe tour summer 2018! They performed at exclusive Hard Rock Cafe locations in prominent American cities such as Boston, Nashville, Pittsburgh, Denver, Seattle, Indianapolis, Tampa, Phoenix and Anchorage.

What is a better way to spend a Saturday morning? Join us for another exciting class using PanPastels, the most versatile and forgiving medium on the planet! It is not necessary to have attended the first class, as we will briefly review how to use the pigments and tools, and then dive into painting! This time we will not only have plenty of reference material from photographs, but will also have a choice to paint from life using a simple still life provided by Sunny. She will do a demonstration to show how to create depth, contrast, volume and emphasize a 3D illusion. We will also address how to combine Pan Pastels with other media.  Participants will create a painting using their choice of reference with help from Sunny. So come on down and let’s have some fun painting with this great medium. (Disclaimer: Pan Pastels may become addictive!)

It is not necessary to buy any supplies as they will be provided. However, if you have them, please bring them to class.

In a few short years, this little record company produced superstars such as Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison, and B.B. King.  Good Rockin' LIVE!, with hits like Great Balls of Fire, Folsom Prison Blues, That's All Right Mama, and Blue Suede Shoes, tells the tale of how rock was born through the music and stories of those who lived it.

In 1989, Alan Day lobbied the United States Congress and was granted approval to create our country's first government-sponsored wild horse sanctuary on his South Dakota ranch.  At the time, the government housed roughly 2,000 horses in feedlots. Fifteen hundred of those wild mustangs came to live at Mustang Meadows Ranch where, for four years, Alan trained and cared for them.  Today, the Bureau of Land Management holds over 60,000 wild mustangs in feedlots, and the number keeps growing.  Why are so many of these esteemed animals in captivity?  Alan Day will share his experiences with the wild horses, as well as his insights into the present controversy surrounding these icons of the West.If it is possible to say someone can be born a cowboy, then Alan Day was born one.  He was the third generation to grow up on the 200,000-acre Lazy B cattle ranch straddling the high deserts of southern Arizona and New Mexico. After graduating from the University of Arizona, Alan returned to manage Lazy B for the next 40 years, during which time he received awards for his dedication to land stewardship.  In addition to co-authoring with his sister, Sandra Day O'Connor, the New York Times bestselling memoir Lazy B, Alan is also the author of The Horse Lover: A Cowboy's Quest to Save the Wild Mustangs and Cowboy Up!: Life Lessons from the Lazy B.

WATERCOLOR AND OTHER WATER-MEDIA 

For Beginners WITH SOME EXPERIENCE to Advanced Levels

(Watercolor, Oil and Acrylic) 

​With a stunning waterfall or intimate woodsy creek – with wildflowers blooming on the bank – as your subject, learn to make water look wet, reflective and splashy! Painting water that looks wet requires some basic knowledge of the dynamics of cascading water. Techniques will be demonstrated to address the various puzzles with which the artist is faced when painting this stunning, fascinating and challenging subject! Studio lessons will focus on:

  • The “anatomy of a waterfall”

  • Incorporating flowers into a “waterscape”

  • Negative painting lessons

  • Creative color 

There will be demos, instruction at all levels, critique and lots of painting time. Class time will be structured, yet open enough to accommodate the artistic spirit within us all. All levels are welcome and encouraged to attend. The only prerequisite is an attitude of joy in the act of painting!

Author of three North Light books, Watercolor Unleashed (2013), Discover Oil Painting (2016) and Brilliant Color (oil & acrylic – 2009), plus three Watercolor Unleashed videos, two Acrylic Unleashed videos and four Oil Painting Unleashed videos for ArtistsNetwork.com, Julie has taught watercolor and oil classes for over 30 years.

For Beginners WITH SOME EXPERIENCE to Advanced Levels

ROCKS, BOULDERS & PEBBLES: the “bedrock” of landscape painting. Creating the shapes and depth of individual rocks and learning to combine many rocks and pebbles into a single collective shape that says “rocks” without detailing each one is crucial to successful landscape painting. This workshop will focus on the challenge of painting a landscape in which rocks, boulders and pebbles are a significant feature. A photo will be provided for student use but they are always welcome and encouraged to paint from their own reference material. There will be demonstrations of techniques suitable for the subject, exercises, ongoing critique and lots of painting time. Class time will be structured, yet open enough to accommodate the artistic spirit within every attendee. All levels are welcome and encouraged to attend. The only prerequisite is an attitude of joy in the act of painting! http://www.juliegilbertpollard.com
