    Article: Canadian Brass Adds Shine to Choral Project of San Jose
    San Francisco Classical Voice - Jan 29, 2014

    Once in a very great while, you attend a concert that immediately jumps to some imaginary, personal list of all-time best concert experiences. For me, The Choral Project of San Jose concert on Tuesday, performed to a packed audience at San Jose’s gorgeous Basilica of St Joseph, was one of those performances. The renowned Canadian Brass were absolutely at the top of their game but they in no way outshone their hosts. Collapse

    Artist Lori Krein, known for her collage creations, her public access television show and for facilitating workshops, is opening a studio in Campbell on March 9.
    "I wanted to reach out to the community where I live, and it felt like the right thing," says Krein, who recently vacated her studio at The Alameda Artworks in the Rose Garden area.
    The new 725-square-foot studio is almost double the size of the one she just left.
    Like its predecessor, it is filled with found objects, string, paints, handmade art papers, old canvases, magazines, fabrics and all manner of items such as broken jewelry, bits of chain, metal washers and old nails--all ready to be repurposed into new pieces of art.
    Krein has long proved the adage that one man's trash is another man's treasure.
    Prior to devoting full time to her art, Krein worked as an instructional designer for corporations, teaching leadership skills and team building.
    Even as she started creating and opened a studio, Krein says she realized that "making and selling art is not my primary focus. My primary focus is teaching other people to be creative and express themselves.
    "I give them space and materials to explore those things."
    Krein also produced Lori Krein's Art Studio, originally shown locally on Comcast channel 15. CreaTV recognized her as producer of the year in 2010, and the show is now being broadcast on 50 different public access stations across the United States.

    In her new studio Krein will be offering expressive arts workshops for kids, teens and adults; summer art camps; art birthday parties; couples' workshops; ladies' night out workshops; singles mixers and her popular, ongoing open studio sessions.
    The sessions are gatherings where people can create their own collages, decoupages and assemblages in a relaxed atmosphere.
    Participants can bring their own materials or use those on hand, and Krein is there to lend encouragement and guidance.
    "My goal is to encourage everyone to explore their creativity, while making friends and sharing creative ideas in a social setting," she says.
