2014 BHS PTO College Essay Writing Workshop

Staffed by dedicated Brookline High English teachers and organized by parent and community volunteers, this free workshop has helped over 2,350 BHS seniors craft better essays for their college applications.  Here's what past participants have said about their experiences: 

Honestly, I didn't expect much from the workshop because I thought I was ready. I was wrong, because I found a much better topic.”

“My expectations were exceeded way beyond my imagination. I am confident I was given the best advice possible.”

“Now I know exactly what to do to make my essay stronger.”

“Communicating with my peers and finding out what other people were doing really helped to decrease my anxiety. Thanks for doing this. This saved my life!” 
 
SENIORS:  Whether you accomplish a lot on your essay over the summer or you’re still trying to decide what to write about when school begins next fall, this workshop will be helpful.  Students work in small groups with others who are at the same writing stage, and are led by BHS teachers to work on their writing, spend some time in peer review, and get individual help and feedback from teachers and volunteers.  Online Registration begins in May, 2014.  

PARENTS:  We depend on volunteers that morning.  If you have experience as a teacher, writer or editor, we’ll provide an orientation on helping students with their college essays.  If you can provide logistical support (registration, snack delivery, room set up), please let us know.  This is a one-day, one-time commitment.

notloB Parlour Concerts presents... Mr. Sun

notloB's Fall season, which began in September with Blue Hat, Yeah! and continued in October with the Tannahill Weavers continues in our new 100 seat Washington Square Brookline venue, located on the "C" green line with plenty of street parking and close to over a dozen restaurants!

notloB Parlour Concerts presents... Mr.Sun, a 21st Century string band.... multi-generational hot shots! 
Sunday, November 30, 2014, 8:00pm
Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis*, 1581 Beacon St, Brookline, MA 02446

Mr. Sun is the name of a new musical project: Darol Anger, Joe Walsh on mandolin (Gibson Brothers, himself), Grant Gordy on guitar (David Grisman, Jake Schepps) and Ethan Jodziewicz on acoustic bass.

Legendary fiddler Darol Anger, youthful guitar whiz Grant Gordy, and the redoubtable mandolinist Joe Walsh have all spent their lives moving from place to place, adopting a town and moving on, toward an magisterial knowledge of the physical and psychic terrains that make up the Americas. 
Though each is of a different generation, they've walked similar musical paths, exploring the worlds of bluegrass, blues, jazz, and old-time, on their way to mastery of their chosen instruments. Day by day, they deepen their fluency in the vast swath of dialects that comprise American roots music.

DAROL ANGER
Fiddler, composer, producer and educator, Darol Anger is at home in a number of musical genres, some of which he helped to invent. Exceptional among modern fiddlers for his versatility and depth, Anger has helped drive the evolution of the contemporary string band through his involvement with numerous pathbreaking ensembles such as his Republic Of Strings, the Turtle Island String Quartet, the David Grisman Quintet, Montreux, his Duo with Mike Marshall, and others. He has performed and taught all over the world with musicians such as Dr. Billy Taylor, Bela Fleck, Bill Evans, Edgar Meyer, Bill Frisell, Tony Rice, Tim O’Brien, Anonymous 4, Marin Alsop and the Cabrillo Orchestra, the Detroit Symphony, Mark O’Connor, and Stephane Grappelli. Today Darol can be heard on NPR's "Car Talk" theme every week, along with Earl Scruggs, David Grisman and Tony Rice. He was also the violinist on the phenomenally popular Sim City computer games. In addition to performing all over the world, he has recorded and produced scores of important recordings since 1977, is a MacDowell and UCross Fellow, and has received numerous composers’ residencies and grants. He has been a featured soloist on dozens of recordings and motion picture soundtracks. He is an Associate Professor at the prestigious Berklee School of music. He recently began an ambitious online Fiddle School at ArtistWorks.com. His website is www.darolanger.com

GRANT GORDY
Assuming the guitarist role in the fabled David Grisman Quintet, a spot previously held by such notables as Tony Rice, Mark O’Connor, Frank Vignola and Mike Marshall, has confirmed Grant Gordy as a pre-eminent young voice on acoustic guitar. David Grisman says Gordy “belongs to the new elite of American acoustic practitioners who are pushing the ever-expanding envelope of a musical frontier.”
His work has been widely recognized for its consistent excellence and diversity. He was featured on the covers of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine and Japan’s premier bluegrass magazine, Moonshiner. He was recently written up in Just Jazz Guitar and in 2010, Acoustic Guitar Magazine celebrated his debut CD in its Top Ten Acoustic Albums of the Year.
Gordy’s music has been heard on National Public Radio’s Morning Edition, All Things Considered and the prestigious Tiny Desk Concerts. Gordy was selected in 2006 to be one of 15 participants in Carnegie Hall’s “Porous Borders of Music” workshop, led by acoustic music legends Edgar Meyer and Mike Marshall. He’s played at Bonnaroo Music Festival, the Montréal Jazz Festival, Carnegie Hall, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco and in the UK and Russia.
Gordy was drawn to the guitar early on as a means of expression and intellectual curiosity. Moving to Colorado from Oregon in his 20s opened his horizons as he began playing in a wide range of different styles.
Now based in New York, Gordy’s diverse musical gifts make him the ideal all-around guitarist for one of the world’s most varied musical cities. He’s currently focused on writing new original material, delving headlong into the Big Apple’s extraordinary jazz scene, continuing to tour with Grisman and other collaborators, teaching, and as always, staying open to new musical experiences.
"The young bluegrass/jazz virtuoso’s recording debut is an inspired, ambitious, coherent collection of original compositions for string jazz quartet (guitar, fiddle, mandolin, bass) that ranks with the best of his employer, David Grisman.” --Acoustic Guitar Magazine

JOE WALSH
Recognized as one of the foremost contemporary mandolinists, Joe has also won acclaim and affection for his vocals and his talents on a number of other instruments, including guitar and octave mandolin. Legendary fiddler Darol Anger called “one of my favorite musicians on earth.” With two solo albums to his credit, he toured internationally with the award-winning bluegrass supergroup The Gibson Brothers.
In the spring of 2011 Joe released his second solo record, “Sweet Loam,” which features several of his recent compositions and new arrangements of some more familiar songs. An exceptional cast of musicians joins him, including Mike Block, Scott Law, Karl Doty, Lauren Rioux, and Darol Anger, who also co-produced the record with Joe. In the Fall of 2011 Joe returned to Berklee as both a mandolin instructor and as Managing Director of the American Roots Music Program.

ETHAN JODZIEWOCZ
Ethan Jodziewicz currently studies at Curtis Institute with Edgar Meyer. Making a musical home for Mr Sun in the space around and between the great American roots styles, this quartet draws from all of their varied backgrounds (Grammy-nominated fiddle music and jazz, award-winning bluegrass, indie/pop grass, new acoustic string bands, and classical music) in crafting a sound all their own, and is drawing all the right kind of attention for their new musical work.

Their blend of traditional bluegrass and original instrumentals influenced by jazz, bluegrass and old time music makes them a new voice in the bluegrass world. The band's members have attended Berklee College of Music, The New School For Jazz and Contemporary Music and The New Zealand School of Music and each bring a diverse background of traditional music to the group.

"Blue Hat, Yeah! is the name of this ambitious group of fine, young musicians whom are working hard at creating their own brand of Acoustic/Bluegrass music. Hailing from the Boston area and having studied our genre, they are constantly working, honing, and raring to go; showcasing to the world what they have to offer. This is a refreshing, young band with tasteful material, smiles, and a hunger for people to hear and enjoy what they have to offer. Keep your eyes and ears on this aspiring band in the future."
Jesse Brock, Mandolin/vocals, The Gibson Brothers

Bronwyn Keith-Hynes is a Boston-based musician originally from Charlottesville, Virginia. Accepted on a scholarship to Berklee College of Music at age 16, she graduated in 2013 with a diploma in Violin Performance. Bronwyn is fast gaining recognition for her fiddling in both Irish and Bluegrass circles. Her playing, improvising, and writing is informed by her past five years of intense immersion in the Boston acoustic music scene and time spent studying traditional Irish and Cape Breton music before moving to Boston. Bronwyn performed with Peter Rowan at the 2013 IBMA and has also performed at The John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts; The Inter-Celtic Festival in Lorient, France and Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival. This year she was selected to attend the 2014 Savannah Acoustic Music Seminar, held in April, where she will study with artists such as Julian Lage, Bela Fleck and Mike Marshall. As well as performing with Blue Hat, Yeah! Bronwyn also performs with the Wes Corbett Trio and The Moonlight Ramblers.

Catherine Bowness, Banjo
Since picking up the banjo at age 12, Catherine (BB) Bowness has travelled throughout New Zealand, Australia and the United States playing and teaching bluegrass music. At age 15, she received the Frank Winter memorial award at the Auckland Folk Festival allowing her to travel to the USA, where she won the Uncle Dave Macon banjo contest in Murfreesboro, TN. She was the first banjo player accepted to the New Zealand School of Music, receiving a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance. In 2013, BB was one of just sixteen young musicians selected to attend the Savannah Acoustic Music Seminar, studying with world-class artists such as Julian Lage, Mike Marshall and Darol Anger. Since re-locating to Boston last year she has kept busy recording, performing and teaching in and around Massachusetts.

Nathanial Sabat, Bass
A graduate of the voice program at New York City’s renowned LaGuardia High School, Nate Sabat’s musical roots are in choral singing. However, he started playing bass just before he began at LaGuardia, and, years later, was accepted to the Berklee College of Music as an upright bass principal. There, he has made it a goal to delve into the thriving Boston acoustic music scene, inside and outside of Berklee. To date, he has performed, worked and studied with artists such as Kronos Quartet, The New York Pops, Eugene Friesen and Bruce Molsky. This winter, he was chosen to be one of sixteen young acoustic musicians to attend the Savannah Acoustic Music Seminar in April, and will work with artists such as Bela Fleck, Mike Marshall, and Chris Eldridge. After graduating Berklee, he plans to stay in Boston for a few years to continue to play, record, and compose.

Mike Robinson, Guitar
From the age of six, Mike Robinson has had a guitar in his hands. He was raised in a musical family on a thirty-five foot sailboat that traveled the Caribbean. When he was twelve, Mike and his family moved to Boulder Colorado where he joined his middle school jazz band and began attending bluegrass festivals. At age sixteen he premiered a composition on the first ever CCJA record, "Fourteen Channels" on Tapestry Records. By the time Mike moved to New York City to study at The New School For Jazz and Contemporary Music, he had developed a style of playing and writing that mixed his love of both jazz and bluegrass music. This winter he was accepted to attend the Savannah Music Festival Acoustic Music Seminar, which will be held in April 2014 and where he will be studying with some of the top acoustic musicians in the world. Mike currently lives in New York and is in his third year as a student at the New School. Mike is in high demand as a guitarist and singer in both the jazz and bluegrass music worlds.

Matt Witler, Mandolin
Matt Witler is a Boston based mandolin player. Starting on the fiddle at the age of nine, Matt fell in love with old time and bluegrass music. At the age of 14 he picked up the mandolin and began to study music in earnest. Matt is now in his final semester at the Berklee College of Music. While Matt is rooted in the bluegrass tradition, he has explored and been influenced by Jazz, classical, and pop music. In 2012 Matt won first place in both the mandolin, and flatpick guitar contests at Rockygrass bluegrass festival. Matt is a founding member of the Lonely Heartstring Band, a progressive acoustic band that is quickly gaining acclaim in the bluegrass community.

notloB Parlour Concerts presents...The Tannahill Weavers with Fresh Haggis

Tannahill Weavers
Roy Gullane, guitar
Phil Smillie, flute, bodhran, vocals
John Martin, fiddle, viola, cello, vocals
Lorne MacDougall, bagpipes, Scottish smallpipes and whistles
http://www.tannahillweavers.com/

 The Tannahill Weavers are one of Scotland 's premier traditional bands.  Their diverse repertoire spans the centuries with fire-driven instrumentals, topical songs, and original ballads and lullabies. Their music demonstrates to old and young alike the rich and varied musical heritage of the Celtic people.  These versatile musicians have received worldwide accolades consistently over the years for their exuberant performances and outstanding recording efforts that seemingly can't get better...yet continue to do just that.  

The Tannahills have turned their acoustic excitement loose on audiences with an electrifying effect. They have that unique combination of traditional melodies, driving rhythmic accompaniment, and rich vocals that make their performances unforgettable.  As the Winnipeg Free Press noted, "The Tannahill Weavers - properly harnessed - could probably power and entire city for a year on the strength of last night's concert alone.  The music may be old-time Celtic, but the drive and enthusiasm are akin to straight ahead rock and roll."  

Born of a session in Paisley, Scotland, and named for the town's historic weaving industry and local poet laureate Robert Tannahill, the group has made an international name for its special brand of Scottish music, blending the beauty of traditional melodies with the power of modern rhythms.  Over the years the Tannies have been trailblazers for Scottish music, and their tight harmonies and powerful, inventive arrangements have won them fans from beyond the folk and Celtic music scenes.

They are firmly established as one of the premier groups on the concert stage.  From reflective ballads to footstomping reels and jigs, the variety and range of the material they perform is matched only by their enthusiasm and lively Celtic spirits.  

"An especially eloquent mixture of the old and the new."  New York Times  

"Scotland 's Tannahill Weavers play acoustic instruments, but the atmosphere at their shows is electric.  The quintet is as tight and as versatile as any band in the Celtic music revival.  They can summon rock 'n' roll intensity or haunting introspection."  The Boston Globe, Boston MA  

"...as close to perfect as it gets in an imperfect world."  Sing Out!

The Tannahill Weavers will be supported by....

Fresh Haggis
https://www.facebook.com/FreshHaggis
Elias Alexander (border pipes, vocals), Eamon Sefton (guitar, vocals), Kathleen Parks (fiddle, vocals).
Fresh Haggis is a dynamic new band formed of some of the finest young up-and-coming musicians on the Boston Celtic-music scene. Composed of border piper/singer Elias Alexander, guitarist/singer Eamon Sefton, and fiddler/singer Kathleen Parks, the group celebrates the continued vibrancy of the Irish and Scottish musical traditions through youthful, passionate arrangements of songs and tunes, including some original compositions within the style. Traditional music at the peak of exuberance!

Glove Puppetry Boot Camp; Adult Puppetry Class

Glove puppetry (also known as hand puppetry) is one of the world’s oldest and most versatile theatrical traditions. From Punch and Judy to Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood of Make-Believe, glove puppets can express an enormous range of character and emotion without ever blinking an eye.

In this fun and rigorous class, participants will learn the fundamentals of glove puppet manipulation from a professional puppeteer. Starting with basic exercises for manual dexterity and building towards complete multi-character scenes, students will acquire a “movement vocabulary” that lets their hands express almost any emotion or action. Participants will also gain exposure to Puppet Showplace Theatre’s unique archive of professional glove puppets and will be able to experience working behind a puppet stage.

Whether you're a seasoned performer or just looking for a way to enliven story time, this boot camp will leave your hands ready for action!

Abigail Lee Goldberger: Fairytales & Enchantment Opening Reception

Unbound Visual Arts, Inc., is very pleased to announce the opening of Abigail Lee Goldberger: Fairytales & Enchantment, curated by Lee Collilouri,at Athan’s Café Art Gallery in Brookline. A public reception with the artist is Sunday July 27th from 7:00 - 9:00 pm. The exhibition runs from July 3, 2014 through August 31, 2014 and is open daily from 8:00 am to 11:00 pm.  Athan’s Café Art Gallery, 1621 Beacon Street (Washington Square), Brookline, MA.| MBTA: Green Line “C” | Handicapped accessible. Free wi-fi and air-conditioned.


Abigail Lee Goldberger is inspired by myths, nature, memories, folk art, children’s books, longing, science, and religion. Themes and stories begin to unravel as she layers multiple colors of oil paint onto the canvas. The balance of color and contrast contribute to the captivating mood, which is dreamlike and mysterious. Although the expressions in the characters are calm and the images are static, there is a sense of energy and movement in the whimsical and brave world that Abigail generates.


She stops the reality of the domain we live in and produces an escape, a fairytale utopia where a new universe is created on the canvas. Each surreal character is portrayed as an animal or human, and the new environment begins to tell a colorful story. Whether there is an innocent glowing baby floating in a misty sky and surrounded by purple flowers, or a majestic lion sitting on polka dotted grass with twinkling stars above him, the images become fascinating. It is important for viewers to carefully ponder the paintings, and for a moment become liberated in  Abigail’s fantasy realm.


Abigail Lee Goldberger, a member of Unbound of Visual Arts and a resident of Allston,  was born in Boston Massachusetts.  She has lived in various places across the United States and Australia. She graduated from University of Massachusetts Boston in 2012 with a BA in Latin American Studies and Iberian Studies while minoring in Environmental Science. Beyond her degree, Abigail has taken formal classes in animation, pottery, metalsmithing, printmaking, and drawing.  She has been immersed in art her entire life, and spent her childhood in her mother’s studio who was a stone sculptor. Being free and benefiting from making mistakes then seeing where they took her is why she chose to be primarily self-taught in painting. Abigail’s work is inspired by folk art, surrealism, and children’s books. She has shown in many exhibitions and events including; the Boston Convention & Exposition Center as part of the  MCCA’s Neighborhood Arts Program, Joy Street Open Studios in Somerville MA, and the Boston Biennial at The Gallery at Spencer Lofts, Chelsea, MA.


Lee Collilouri, of Allston Massachusetts, has always had a strong passion for the creative world of art. As a recent graduate from Lesley University College of Art and Design she received a Bachelors degree in Fine Art with a focus in painting. Her current work consists of vibrant and abstract large-scale oil paintings that emphasize fluid line shapes and forms.  She has been included in exhibitions throughout college, the most recently was a BFA thesis show “Chromatic Semblance” at the Vandernoot Gallery in Cambridge Massachusetts.  Beyond painting, art history is a special interest for Lee and she has studied it closely throughout her college program. She has experience assisting artists as well and planning, designing and installing artwork in commercial gallery settings. She remains fascinated by the purpose, importance and art of curating.


Unbound Visual Artsis a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable corporation based in Allston-Brighton and serving the Boston area.  It was incorporated in late 2012 to enliven the creative economy in contemporary fine art for artists and art supporters through curated exhibitions, education and sharing.

Rabbi Sonia Saltzman - Temple Ohabei Shalom

Rabbi Sonia Saltzman was ordained in 2008 as part of the first graduating class of the Rabbinical School at Hebrew College, an institution committed to a pluralistic approach to Jewish learning and practice. Upon ordination she served three years at Sha’arei Shalom, a non-affiliated community in Ashland, MA. She helped lead the community through a transition process including extensive new programming and relocation. During Rabbinical School Rabbi Saltzman held student pulpits at Temple Emanuel in Newton and at Temple Aliyah in Needham. She also completed chaplaincy training at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and served as faculty for the Bronfman Youth Fellowship Program in Israel.

Prior to entering the rabbinate, Rabbi Saltzman worked in the field of micro-finance at ACCION International as head of the Financial Services Department, extending credit to small businesses in the developing world. She also worked in Bank of Boston’s Project Finance Department and taught in its Loan Officer Development Program.

Rabbi Saltzman is a graduate of Tufts University and holds a Masters Degree in International Affairs (Columbia University) and a Masters Degree in Bible and Jewish Thought (Brandeis University). She is married to Dr. Ned Saltzman, an urologist at Newton-Wellesley Hospital and has two grown sons, Benjamin and Gabriel.

Rabbi Saltzman grew up in Chile, in a home imbued with Jewish values, but at a time when opportunities for Jewish learning were especially limited for women. When asked why she entered the rabbinate, Rabbi Saltzman responds,

I believe in the wisdom and beauty of Judaism and hope to inspire others to deepen their relationship to Judaism by offering opportunities to engage with our sacred texts, to experience the richness of prayer and to build a caring and committed community.— RABBI SONIA SALTZMAN

-Fee: $170

Led by Katherin Hudkins, former Isis Instructor: Katherin has been studying childbirth since her first year at Smith College, where she received her BA in Anthropology with a focus in the Anthropology of Reproduction. Katherin has over a decade of extensive childcare experience, worked as a birth doula in Ecuador and Massachusetts, and spent a summer as a traditional midwife’s apprentice in Guatemala. Her passion for emotional support of expecting and new parents brought her to Isis Parenting in June of 2010, where she worked as an assistant center manager and a staff trainer. Her natural gift with moms and babies drew her into the field of postpartum support as a doula and Isis facilitator of new moms groups. Her teaching style is warm, upbeat, and positive, and informed by her cross-cultural and evolutionary studies of childbirth and parenting. 

What if I have to miss a session?
Life happens (especially as a new mom!) Do what you can to make it each week, but know that the program is valuable even if you have to miss some sessions. We don't prorate our support groups for missed sessions as it's really about getting 6 weeks of support & resources (vs 6 sessions). One of the best parts? Developing friendships with so many supportive moms.


What Mommybites Moms are Saying:

Becoming a new mom was the most exhilarating, exhausting, and intense journey I'd ever experienced. What I found I needed most was a sense of community, which is what this group offers. Meeting up, learning from, and laughing with other new mothers helps turn an uncertain and potentially scary time into a shared adventure...

The New Mom's Support Group for babies is a fun and easy way to bond with other moms. The focus is really on the mom, which is so unique in the vast universe of mommy and me classes in NYC...

I enjoyed taking part in the support group. It is great to be with moms and their little ones born around the same time as my daughter. We shared and learned a lot from each other, but the best thing is that we made friends!

I enjoyed taking part in the support group. It is great to be with moms and their little ones born around the same time as my daughter. We shared and learned a lot from each other, but the best thing is that we made friends!

Abigail Lee Goldberger: Fairytales & Enchantment Opening Reception

Unbound Visual Arts, Inc., is very pleased to announce the opening of Abigail Lee Goldberger: Fairytales & Enchantment, curated by Lee Collilouri,at Athan’s Café Art Gallery in Brookline. A public reception with the artist is Sunday July 27th from 7:00 - 9:00 pm. The exhibition runs from July 3, 2014 through August 31, 2014 and is open daily from 8:00 am to 11:00 pm.  Athan’s Café Art Gallery, 1621 Beacon Street (Washington Square), Brookline, MA.| MBTA: Green Line “C” | Handicapped accessible. Free wi-fi and air-conditioned.


Abigail Lee Goldberger is inspired by myths, nature, memories, folk art, children’s books, longing, science, and religion. Themes and stories begin to unravel as she layers multiple colors of oil paint onto the canvas. The balance of color and contrast contribute to the captivating mood, which is dreamlike and mysterious. Although the expressions in the characters are calm and the images are static, there is a sense of energy and movement in the whimsical and brave world that Abigail generates.


She stops the reality of the domain we live in and produces an escape, a fairytale utopia where a new universe is created on the canvas. Each surreal character is portrayed as an animal or human, and the new environment begins to tell a colorful story. Whether there is an innocent glowing baby floating in a misty sky and surrounded by purple flowers, or a majestic lion sitting on polka dotted grass with twinkling stars above him, the images become fascinating. It is important for viewers to carefully ponder the paintings, and for a moment become liberated in  Abigail’s fantasy realm.


Abigail Lee Goldberger, a member of Unbound of Visual Arts and a resident of Allston,  was born in Boston Massachusetts.  She has lived in various places across the United States and Australia. She graduated from University of Massachusetts Boston in 2012 with a BA in Latin American Studies and Iberian Studies while minoring in Environmental Science. Beyond her degree, Abigail has taken formal classes in animation, pottery, metalsmithing, printmaking, and drawing.  She has been immersed in art her entire life, and spent her childhood in her mother’s studio who was a stone sculptor. Being free and benefiting from making mistakes then seeing where they took her is why she chose to be primarily self-taught in painting. Abigail’s work is inspired by folk art, surrealism, and children’s books. She has shown in many exhibitions and events including; the Boston Convention & Exposition Center as part of the  MCCA’s Neighborhood Arts Program, Joy Street Open Studios in Somerville MA, and the Boston Biennial at The Gallery at Spencer Lofts, Chelsea, MA.


Lee Collilouri, of Allston Massachusetts, has always had a strong passion for the creative world of art. As a recent graduate from Lesley University College of Art and Design she received a Bachelors degree in Fine Art with a focus in painting. Her current work consists of vibrant and abstract large-scale oil paintings that emphasize fluid line shapes and forms.  She has been included in exhibitions throughout college, the most recently was a BFA thesis show “Chromatic Semblance” at the Vandernoot Gallery in Cambridge Massachusetts.  Beyond painting, art history is a special interest for Lee and she has studied it closely throughout her college program. She has experience assisting artists as well and planning, designing and installing artwork in commercial gallery settings. She remains fascinated by the purpose, importance and art of curating.


Unbound Visual Artsis a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable corporation based in Allston-Brighton and serving the Boston area.  It was incorporated in late 2012 to enliven the creative economy in contemporary fine art for artists and art supporters through curated exhibitions, education and sharing.

Led by Katherin Hudkins, former Isis Instructor: Katherin has been studying childbirth since her first year at Smith College, where she received her BA in Anthropology with a focus in the Anthropology of Reproduction. Katherin has over a decade of extensive childcare experience, worked as a birth doula in Ecuador and Massachusetts, and spent a summer as a traditional midwife’s apprentice in Guatemala. Her passion for emotional support of expecting and new parents brought her to Isis Parenting in June of 2010, where she worked as an assistant center manager and a staff trainer. Her natural gift with moms and babies drew her into the field of postpartum support as a doula and Isis facilitator of new moms groups. Her teaching style is warm, upbeat, and positive, and informed by her cross-cultural and evolutionary studies of childbirth and parenting. 

What if I have to miss a session?
Life happens (especially as a new mom!) Do what you can to make it each week, but know that the program is valuable even if you have to miss some sessions. We don't prorate our support groups for missed sessions as it's really about getting 6 weeks of support & resources (vs 6 sessions). One of the best parts? Developing friendships with so many supportive moms.


What Mommybites Moms are Saying:

Becoming a new mom was the most exhilarating, exhausting, and intense journey I'd ever experienced. What I found I needed most was a sense of community, which is what this group offers. Meeting up, learning from, and laughing with other new mothers helps turn an uncertain and potentially scary time into a shared adventure...

The New Mom's Support Group for babies is a fun and easy way to bond with other moms. The focus is really on the mom, which is so unique in the vast universe of mommy and me classes in NYC...

I enjoyed taking part in the support group. It is great to be with moms and their little ones born around the same time as my daughter. We shared and learned a lot from each other, but the best thing is that we made friends!
