Please join UUCP on Wednesday, April 10th at 7:00 PM for our “Artists On Their Art” Series. We are pleased to have two very accomplished guests for our series: Steve Savitz and Steve Johns. There will be time after for questions, discussion and some refreshments. We look forward to seeing you!

 

STEVE SAVITZ:

Steve recently retired from teaching at Stevens Institute of Technology. Prior to his teaching career he worked as a biomedical engineer in the healthcare industry. Currently Steve is a volunteer mentor for the S.J. Levy Fellowship program at CCNY where he mentors and lectures to undergraduate engineering students. He also mentors for The City Tutors program where college undergraduate engineers tutor high school student in STEM courses. He dabbles a bit in Teaneck town politics.

Steve became interested in model ship building 20 years ago, starting with “kit boats” and evolving into “scratch models” and then into to “half hull” models experimenting with different wood and carving tools.  He will show examples of his models and carvings and will explain the different technique used for each. Steve learned wooden boat building techniques while he attended the Apprenticeshop Wooden Boat School in Rockland, Maine where he and his family spend summer vacations.

 

STEVE JOHNS:

Retired after a 50 year career in as a professional musician in NYC.  Thousands of performances with the NYC Opera, NYC Ballet, Met Opera, American Symphony, NY Pops, etc.
