LOW KEY ARTS PRESENTS LOW KEY LABS

Low Key Arts is pleased to announce Low Key Labs, an ongoing community-focused music and arts workshop series. Low Key Labs recruits working musicians, artists and professional makers to mentor students of all ages and skill levels in both one-on-one and group study classes, teaching the fundamentals of various creative disciplines using fun, low-pressure methods tailored to each individual participant. Low Key Labs is designed to give newcomers the tools to become proficient, while more advanced students are provided with challenging exercises to expand their skill set.

Low Key Arts has already established itself on the cutting edge of specialized arts education in central Arkansas through its Inception to Projection Filmmaking Program, founded in 2011. Taught by film industry professionals (and directed for the past six years by critically-acclaimed Hot Springs filmmaker, Jen Gerber), the program has an incredible success rate for young people, as 50% of its college-aged participants have gone on to pursue higher education in filmmaking. Partnering with ASMSA and the University of Central Arkansas to provide top-notch facilities, equipment and know-how has enabled Low Key Arts to fortify the program and truly provide an inspiring, sophisticated and potential-rich opportunity for our students.

Low Key Labs now diversifies our educational programming using our successes with Inception to Projection as the blueprint. In time, we hope to offer classes in music theory and production, photography, videography, digital art, radio broadcasting, and much more. It is our intention to fill a void in arts education in Hot Springs while at the same time providing opportunities for learning which favor progressive and emerging ideas, new approaches, and are engaging to young and old alike.

The inaugural workshop in the series is Lab 1: Mad Scientists of Music (Basics for Guitar, Bass & Keyboards), led by Brennan Leeds and Harry Glaeser of the renowned Little Rock band, Couch Jackets. The class will take place at Low Key Arts (118 Arbor Street) on weekends beginning February 16 through March 10. Students will schedule an hour long, one-on-one lesson each Saturday or Sunday with the appropriate instructor (based on instrument). Students participating in this course will be given signup priority to continue their studies in subsequent sessions of this series.
