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.”

Truett Live!
Jul 4 @ 9:00 pm – 11:30 pm

People often talk about musicians needing to “pay their dues” before they deserve success. Truett has paid his many times over; enough to treat himself and ten friends to an all expenses paid trip straight to the top. Sweating it out night after night in blues bars around the South, screaming into the bright lights and cigarette smoke like the ghost of Howlin’ Wolf, soloing until his hands bled hour after hour, roadhouse after roadhouse, mile after mile.
Fast forward to today, Truett has not only developed immensely as an artist, but also as a songwriter and performer, touring all across the US and Europe, supporting the likes of Ron Pope and Jonathan Tyler, and headlining shows of his own. He released his debut self-titled EP in 2016 and now has a sophomore project, Lies and Lightning, under his belt.
 

Woodstock July 4 Fireworks Celebration
Jul 4 @ 9:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Independence Day celebrations in the City of Woodstock this year will be impacted by the coronavirus pandemic and Governor Kemp’s large gatherings ban. The Independence Day schedule is being altered in order to comply with CDC Guidelines and state restrictions.
The Freedom Run has been postponed until Fall 2020. A new date for the run will be announced in the near future. While the July 4th Spectacular Parade and Festival will not be held this year, the fireworks display in the area of Woodstock Square will continue as planned.
“We consulted with elected officials, state officials and staff and determined that there is no good way to stage Woodstock’s annual parade and festival this year with current restrictions in effect. We are proceeding with the fireworks show as regularly scheduled, given that the layout of the area that is utilized for viewing the show easily allows for social distancing,” said City Manager Jeff Moon. “We strongly encourage those who gather in the area of Woodstock Square for the show to be responsible and follow CDC guidelines.”
Fireworks will take place at dusk. Traffic plans will be shared on the City’s social media in coming weeks.
