Colorful family day

colorful family day

In the sign of the spiral, the symbol of development, was the "mother’s day on the trimburg", which the westheimer kindergarten st. Peter and paul organized this year for the tenth time. With an exhibition, several workshops and a theater piece, the "learning workshop for children" was a success once again, dressing the castle in a colorful family day.
The vernissage "the way of the artist" opened the round with a definition about drawing and painting, which are among the earliest and most popular activities of children. Experimenting with colors and shapes, leaving traces and making signs are the building blocks for aesthetic education. The viewer learned that this is not just about creating a beautiful picture, but about expressing and communicating children’s perceptions and ideas. Clearly recognizable were the changes in painting in the course of development.
"The important thing is not the result, but rather to give the children space to gather their own experiences. Each of the young artists chooses his own working material and prepares his own workspace", emphasizes the deputy director of st. Peter and paul, judith weissenberger. Divided into age groups, each team approaches a topic in its own way.
Experiencing the senses and being able to experiment are important aspects of this and create the "aha" effect, for example with the question "what does paint smell like??". The coarser children started painting a "body project heran. With the depiction of a heart painted in oil color, of course, also many pertinent questions were connected, for example "why is blood red??" Or "why do we need a skeleton?".
The 5- to 6-year-olds were challenged to keep their themes in balance between project-oriented design and free expression. On the whole, the wise saying that "everyone is an artist as a child" is true. The difficulty is to remain one as an adult".
The workshops spread throughout the castle invited participation, as every child was allowed to take part in them. Making a lively, colorful wind spiral, laying a glittering spiral in concrete, or making the most beautiful snail shell were all to the liking of the creatively inquisitive group of children. And it is undoubtedly wonderful to wash in a paste made of shaving cream and food coloring, apply it to a mirror and then paint spirals into it.
The opening of the day was taken into their own hands by the children and the flotengruppe with a song they had made up for the occasion. But in fact, mother’s day began the evening before with a free "rokomana-concert that attracted around 150 listeners to the ruin. Donations will go to the "lernwerkstatt fur kinder for a music system.
The kindergarten and the children’s parents took care of the tasting with cream of tomato soup, delicacies from the grill and coffee and homemade cakes. The access road to the landmark, however, remained closed on sunday due to legal requirements. Those who did not want to go to fub could use a shuttle bus.
With the theater piece "the most beautiful snail’s shell the day ended. In the play, eduard loses his house in a snail race and it is trampled on. His friends try to help him. But this turns out to be difficult. Eduard finally discovers the most beautiful snail shell in a garden. A successful fantasy story of friendship and creative skills.

Gluhwein, glitter and glucksrad

An unusually good attendance was recorded by the 35. Christmas market on the first sunday of advent. At the beginning, at 1 p.M., even the sun was shining. Then the sky was overcast, no snow came, and no rain either. That was already an advantage for the market hustle and bustle. Already at 1 p.M., families made their way to the marketplace.
In addition to professional vendors, there were many hobby artists offering their unique products. Beautiful things to give away, but also for your own home, or to wear. A lot of knitted things, especially tasteful muffs with and without great and of course socks and scarves in nice colors.
Among the vendors was the knitting circle, which was formed in february of this year and sold its products for a good cause. The food and drink stands were particularly well frequented. There were even freshly smoked trout for sale¸ in the background of the stand, smoke came out of a box and signaled the freshness of the goods.

"Bagges" for badugu's project
Marika jakob, as always present, sizzled "bagges" this time (potato pancakes) in a pan. This year she did the same for the indian cleric samson badugu, who wants to use the money to build a school for girls in his home country.
The fruit and horticulture association offered its home-made sauerkraut – and was also successful with it.
There was a colorful hustle and bustle on the historic market square. Attendees shuffled from one booth to the next to a certain extent. At nightfall, the little ones from the daycare center sang joyful christmas carols and were met with much applause. The newly formed brass band under the direction of kevin rohrmann also received an abundance of support. A christmas atmosphere was then experienced. Such music, played live, brings more atmosphere than a multitude of music pieces from loudspeakers. It was already easy. In the previous year, this romantic accent had been missing.
In the parish center, a few steps away from the market place, a nativity scene exhibition could be admired. At the same time, visitors could indulge in christmas delights such as mulled wine, coffee, tea and christmas cakes, and admire the 38 nativity scenes.

Messenger of heaven gives gifts to children
Then santa claus appeared, or maybe it was santa claus, but you couldn't tell by the way he was dressed up. He gave presents to the many children who greedily reached out for the chocolate bars. He was supported by mayor jochen partheymuller and the aubendienst employees.
Slowly, the marketplace emptied. Only at the food stands did visitors last longer – and in the real ratskeller even longer…

Opera ring bad kissingen: program for the 37. Season is set

Opera ring bad kissingen: program for the 37. season is set

The opera ring bad kissingen has existed since 1983. He is part of the volkshochschule bad kissingen. Subscribers attend eight performances per season at various opera houses and theaters. The performances take place on weekends. The performance venues have been chosen in such a way that it is still possible to drive back to bad kissingen after the performances. Overnight stays are therefore excluded. The trips to the respective performances take place on a tour bus. The boarding point is in bad kissingen at berliner platz. The departure times can be found in the season program.

Am 6. October the opera ring travels to kassel to see "der wildschutz. When at the end of the overture a shot rings out loudly, this is the beginning of a confusion and disguise event that could hardly be more turbulent: this shot was fired by the village schoolmaster baculus, who on the occasion of his engagement to the suben gretchen has shot a supposed roebuck in the woods of count eberbach. Now this illegal poaching is threatening to become a prison sentence for him. Because if he were to lose his position, it would be all over for the wedding. Here comes the "incognito" that is often used in comedy to help: a baroness appears as a pretend gretchen at the count’s in order to besanftigen him, a baron pretends to be a stable boy and woos that "false" one and the love-hungry count immediately makes a pass at both of them. One fiery declaration of love follows the next, until the masks finally fall, baculus sells his bride for 5000 thalers and the roebuck turns out to be an ass.

On 3. November stands "don pasquale on the program in erfurt. The rich householder don pasquale, after being alone for a long time, waits for a bride promised to him by his family doctor malatesta. He does not know that his future wife is in reality his nephew ernesto’s mistress, the young widow norina. The young woman wants to found a family in pasquale’s house, but without him. In order to achieve this, malatesta invents a wild intrigue where everyone lies to everyone else and plays different roles.
