In partnership with the Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival, the Hermann-Grima House will host a lecture on Spiritualism in 19th-Century New Orleans followed by a Victorian-style seance on March 23 at 3:00 p.m. Historian Melissa Daggett will team with spiritual medium Juliet Pazera to interpret the supernatural rituals popular among 19th-century Creoles of color in the years preceding the Civil War through Reconstruction. The event, to be held in the parlor of the Hermann-Grima House, is sure to offer untold surprises. Tickets will be $20 and will be offered for sale through the Festival website: http://www.tennesseewilliams.net.  Seats at the seance table will be auctioned off as part of the 2017 Amazing Grapes fundraiser.

Nancy Sharon Collins Monogram Classes at Gallier House

April 1, 2017 at 10:00 am
1132 Royal St, New Orleans, LA 70116

In this hands-on class examples of vintage monograms, lettering styles and engraving will be on display--students will learn to make new symbols, traditional monograms, and letterforms using these historic pieces as inspiration.  By tracing, combining then retracing existing forms, new, totally original designs, monograms and letterforms will be created. For anyone tech-curious or savvy:  the class will discuss bringing sketches into digital format, vector (Adobe Illustrator) versus Photoshop (raster) will be compared.  Additionally...the super secret special "Ah Ha!" moment Illustrator trick will be revealed whereby an actual monogram can be digitally rendered in 10-15 minutes (no kidding!). This class focuses on drawing with pencil on paper. Additionally, no contemporary class would be complete without touching on digital applications, but the majority of our time will be hand drawing. Bring your laptop!  Or come without one, either way the class will be engaging, educational, and fun. The class is $35.00 per person.  Please click here to register for the class on April 1st and here to register for the April 22nd class.
