Learn Digital Painting and Color Workshop
Jul 3 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

“Are you struggling with paint color but don’t know where to start? If you love to paint portraits, draw characters or create fantasy environments, painting digitally is a lot of fun. But for most digital artists and those who are learning to paint, color is challenging, intimidating and one of the most difficult subjects to learn.
We will be performing series of workshops to help you start learning color to improve your color.
To begin the color journey, we’ll first study the most important building block of color: value and composition.
Some of our topics include:
– Color and Composition exercise (We will cover a fun and powerful exercise to help you start painting in color the right way).
– Monochrome film studies
Our workshops are designed for those who want to start painting in color with confidence and get consistent results.”

The Queen’s Cartoonists
Jul 18 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

The Queen’s Cartoonists play music from classic cartoons and contemporary animation. The performances are synchronized to video projections of the original films, and the band leads the audience through a world of virtuosic musicianship, multi-instrumental mayhem, and comedy.
Behind the project is a single question is it possible to create jazz and classical music in the 21st century that appeals to everyone? Even people who normally wouldn’t go to concerts? The Queen’s Cartoonists present a concert for everybody – regardless of age, gender, or familiarity with the concert hall.
Tying this diverse concert together are comedic anecdotes involving the cartoons and their composers. The band is on a musical mission of equal parts performance, preservation, and education. Expect the unexpected from repertoire that includes the Golden Age of animation, cult cartoon classics, modern animation, and elements of a musical circus!
Since their inception in 2015, The Queen’s Cartoonists have brought their unique sound to performing arts centers in over 20 states and have opened for the New York Philharmonic. The 6 members, all currently living in Queens, New York, are world-class professional musicians. The band has been featured in numerous major publications, including The Wall Street Journal, The Chicago Tribune, Mashable, and on NPR.
This performance is funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and Georgia Council for the Arts.

Woodstock Summer Concert Series – Ultimate Queen Celebration Starring Marc Martel
Jul 31 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm

The Woodstock Summer Concert Series was originally scheduled to begin Saturday, May 9th but has been postponed until July 31st due to artist cancellations and protective measures resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The July 11th concert in the series has been cancelled. Artist Christopher Cross was scheduled to perform that evening in Woodstock. Cross recently postponed the start of his 40th Anniversary tour and cancelled all scheduled tour dates due to complications following a diagnosis of COVID-19.
“We are hoping to schedule Christopher Cross for one of the dates of the 2021 Woodstock Summer Concert Series,” said City Manager Jeff Moon. “A lot of people were looking forward to seeing Christopher Cross perform in Woodstock. We wish him well with his continued recovery.”
The new schedule for the 2020 Woodstock Summer Concert Series is as follows:
On Friday, July 31st, The Ultimate Queen Celebration starring Marc Martel takes the stage at the Northside Hospital-Cherokee Amphitheater. Martel played an unseen role in the 2018 biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody.” He contributed vocal recordings that were used alongside Queen master tapes of Freddie Mercury for actor Rami Malek’s singing scenes in the movie. The Ultimate Queen Celebration is an explosive, attention-commanding tribute where some of the most iconic rock anthems of all time collide with a theatrical, eye-popping performance.
On Saturday, August 8th, Steep Canyon Rangers will perform. These Grammy winners from Asheville, North Carolina are frequent collaborators of the renowned banjoist (and occasional comedian) Steve Martin. While it’s not likely Steve Martin will be with them in Downtown Woodstock, these perennial bluegrass Billboard chart-toppers will be a hit either way.
On Saturday, September 12th, The Black Jacket Symphony will recreate the classic album “Hotel California” live in its entirety – note for note, sound for sound – plus a full set of hits from The Eagles. Over the past decade, The Black Jacket Symphony has performed over 35 classic rock albums. The group of hand-picked musicians changes based on the album being performed and no sonic detail is overlooked.
On Friday, October 30th, Rumours will take Woodstock by storm with their authentic recreation of a live Fleetwood Mac show. Rumours will make you believe in miracles and the way of magic once again.
Details for the fifth concert in the series will be announced when they are available.
There are a few updates to concert series rules this year. No plastic sheets, blankets, towels, or tarps will be allowed. All tables are prohibited this year. Chairs will not be allowed in the park until after 6 a.m. on the day before the concert.
The Woodstock Summer Concert Series is a free event presented by City of Woodstock, Carriage Kia Woodstock, and Woodstock Parks and Recreation. Opening acts begin at 7:30 p.m. and headliners take the stage at 8:30 p.m. The event is rain or shine.
There are food and beverage vendors on site and dozens of great restaurants within steps of the amphitheater, but attendees may bring small coolers of food and drinks. There is a children’s area near the gazebo in the upper level of the park with face painting, balloon animals, and inflatables.
Public parking is available at Chattahoochee Technical College, at City Center, and in smaller public parking lots and on-street parking in Downtown Woodstock. Free shuttles run before and after each concert beginning at 5 p.m. and ending at 11:45 p.m. from three locations: Northside Cherokee/Towne Lake, Woodstock City Church, and Little River Elementary School.
