Posted on by

first_imgVersailles, In. — Enjoy beautiful scenery while creating works of art through the Arts in the Parks and Historic Sites program, sponsored by the Indiana Arts Commission.The program is designed to draw upon both traditional and non-traditional arts and artists in Indiana and weave arts programming into the natural beauty and rural settings of Indiana. More than 250 projects are taking place across the state this year that encourage the creation of and public engagement with art, as well as the chance to experience Indiana’s state park and state forest system, and its historic sites.“We’re proud of the artistic talent in Indiana,” said Anna Tragesser, IAC artist and community services manager. “These activities are the perfect opportunity for any Hoosier to be creative and inspired by our state’s rich natural and historical places.”Arts programs at Indiana State Parks properties range from a natural dyes workshop at McCormick’s Creek State Park to creating art projects out of recycled materials at Versailles State Park to traditional Miami plant- and food-knowledge hikes at Chain O’Lakes State Park, and crafting music in the trees at Mississinewa and Salamonie lakes.The following events will be held at the Versailles State Park:April 8 Wildflower Photography Workshop from 6 to 8 p.m.April 9 Acrylic Painting with Debi Black from 6 to 8 p.m.April 10 Creating Flora and Fauna using Gum Paste from 6 to 8 p.m.April 11 Bottle Art- Recycled Treasures from 6 to 8 p.m.April 11 Art in Nature IV: Woodturning for the Bees (turning a honey dipper)April 11 Art in Nature IV: Kid’s Mixed Media Recycled Art from 9 to 11 a.m.May 18 Paints in the Parks: The Final Five and Art Exhibit From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.last_img read more

Women’s water polo preps for Barbara Kalbus Invite

The Trojans have won the last two years’ tournaments, which have been hosted by UC Irvine. Photo by Emily Smith | Daily TrojanOver three days, the team will have the chance to face four opponents, including top competitors such as No. 1 Stanford, No. 2 Cal and No. 4 UCLA. The tournament is a chance for the top teams in the MPSF and the nation to face off. From year to year, it is a consistently competitive weekend, but this year, the tournament will feature 16 top-20 teams, providing a truly elite lineup of competition.The weekend for the Trojans will start out with a matchup against San Jose State on Friday. The No. 18 team will provide a solid challenge to begin the weekend, but the team’s eyes will be set on the second game of the tourney. A win over San Jose State would result in a game against the winner of the opening game between No. 6 Arizona State and No. 15 UC San Diego on Saturday. An opportunity to face the Sun Devils this early in the tournament would be a welcome trial for the Trojans, who often duel with them in the MPSF tournament.A pair of opening victories would give the Trojans a berth into the semifinal game on Saturday night. The ultimate goal of the tournament is to reach the championship game on Sunday, which could set the team against any of its in-state foes. The Trojans already took down the Bruins in a 6-4 victory in the title game of the Triton Invitational two weeks ago. The win gave the Trojans their fifth-straight championship in the tournament, highlighted by two goals from standout freshman driver Paige Hauschild, who scored the final goal to clinch the 2-point advantage. Hauschild went on to win MPSF Newcomer of the Week following her performance in the tournament. The award was her second in only six weeks of NCAA play.Although the Trojans took home the title thanks to a ferocious offensive effort — with senior captain driver Brianna Daboub notching her 100th career goal in the semifinal victory over UC Irvine — it was the defense that held down the championship for USC. Goalkeepers senior Victoria Chamorro and junior Amanda Longan split time in the net, with Chamorro earning 27 saves on the weekend and Longan picking up 23 in the semifinal and championship match.A similar defensive effort will be necessary for the Trojans this weekend, as they will most likely face off against two of the top four teams in the nation. The team has yet to face Cal and Stanford so far this season, but all three teams are well-acquainted as they will play each other a handful of times in regular season games and tournaments, as well as in the MPSF and NCAA tournaments. The matchups are not set in stone yet, but the Trojans can expect a challenge no matter which of their in-state rivals they face at the finish line.last_img read more
