May 18, 2011 The Julian News 7 Arts Guild And Library Team Up For Creative Event Are you interested in using your creative side and learning how to paint with watercolors? The Julian Branch Library is providing an opportunity for you to attend a two session class with local artist, Sally Snipes. The two sessions will be held on Saturday, May 21 and Saturday, June 4 from 10 AM - Noon. The class is free to attend, however you need to provide your own supplies. Sally is a 40 year resident of Julian and is well-known around town as the daffodil lady. She began painting 50 years ago while a child. She specializes in watercolor, but also works with other mediums such as stained class and oils. She was an Art major at UC Santa Barbara and also attended one year of school at the San Francisco Art Institute. Snipes was also immersed into the Spanish language program and studied art when attending San Miguel de Allende Instituto in Mexico. She has been teaching art to children for 40 years, 25 years, at Spencer Valley School, and 26 years at the Warner Springs Ranch. She currently works at the Palomar Mountain Outdoor School where she is completing a 9 year project of painting murals throughout the camp. Sally enjoys sharing her knowledge, no matter the topic. As a Master Gardener, she has shared many planting tips with the people of Julian, including several programs she has presented at the library. Incredibly knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of the area, it also inspires her when she paints. When asked about her teaching style, She responded, "Watercolor is fun. Adults should not be afraid of it. Take chances and you will learn what wonderful recreation it can be." She would like participants to be high school aged and up. The first class will start with the basics and then there are two weeks between the classes where yo u can practice what you have learned: Come back for the second class to learn some of the finer details of watercolor. For many of you who know Sally Snipes, you know she has a laid back style but works hard to share her many passions with the people of Julian and the surrounding areas. As there are some space constraints, we ask that you sign up to attend this class. You may drop by the library to sign up or call the branch at (760) 765-0370. Supplies needed for the class include watercolors, paint brushes and heavy duty watercolor paper. Snipes suggests 124 Ib paper. If you do not have access to this paper, Sally will have some available for sale. This program is co-sponsored by the Julian Arts Guild and the Friends of the Library, Arts and Letters Program. We look forward to seeing you at the library. Take a chance. Be creative! Arts.Guild Presentation To Feature Back Country Imagery Of Graham Wilder The Julian Arts Guild will presents Graham Wilder, on Julian images and photography. On Tuesday, May 24th, at 6 pro, local resident Graham Wilder will be giving a talk about his unique and beautiful photography at the julian library. It will be a non- techinical discussion. Graham's photographic approach and style are reflective of his nearly 30 years of contemplative life in a yoga ashram. The metaphysics of nature photography? Perhaps. Come by the Library Community Room and find out! Refresments will be served. Graham's photos, which are exclusively of the Julian area, are on exhibit at the Julian Art Gallery and the Julian Images, Gallery, both located at a Rose Path, 2229 Main Street - next door to the Julian Pie Company.

Too Good To Be True? Absolutely not! Let's see if you as a home owner qualify to get a free-of-charge or highly subsidized photovoltaic (PV) system installed on your roof and drastically reduce your electricity bill. The Single-family Affordable Solar Homes (SASH) Program, part of the California Solar Initiative, offers incentives on PV solar systems to qualifying low-income homeowners in the Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E), Southern California Edison (SCE), and San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E) service territories. GRID Alternatives, a non-profit solar contractor, .manages the SASH Program on behalf of California Public Utilities Commission.. The process is pretty simply and it's hard to believe that more low-income homeowners haven't jumped on the solar band wagon. How does the process work? If you own and live in your home, get your electricity from PG&E, SCE, or SDG&E, and your household income is below the following limits, you may qualify for the SASH Program. After a review of the qualifying facts (proof of homeownership, income, connection to the grid, 2011 at 6 pm. GRID Alternatives ...) with the head of the family, representatives will be happy GRID AIternatives staff will check to explain the process and your home's structural feasibility  qualifying requirements during to install a PV system.- The roof area has to face south or west and the structure has to be solid enough to support the additional load of the racking system and the PV panels. Optional are discussions about other energy sawngs measures in your home and possible incentives from the utility company. Most qualifying projects are approved within weeks and the installation by GRID Alternatives or one of our licensed subcontractors is scheduled. The installation typically takes only two consecutive working days before your electrical meter will start spinning backward dring daylight hours. If your PV system produces more energy during the day than you use, any excess electricity is fed back to the grid and you collect credit against the consumption during night hurs. There will be no interruptiqn of your electric service when  the sun is down. i What do I need to do? i Attend our presentatioq in the Julian Town Hall June 2nd, this meetings. SASH is truly a first-of-its-kind solar program. Don't be shy and let the sun shine into your wallet while making a positive contribution to the environment and your community. With the GRID Alternatives program almost 900 homes statewide have been upgraded with a PV system and produced over 2.1 MW of electricity. You can obtain further information by visiting the local GRID Alternatives web site: ............. my-community-san-diego.
