  • A Romp through the History of Astrology

    Astrology has a history as old as humanity itself. This course will introduce you to the astrologies that have been developed by various world cultures, from the most ancient to the most modern. You’ll leave with a sense of the diversity of what astrology has been and can be, and at the end of the session, we’ll explore the potential to go deeper into any areas of special interest in future courses. Fortune-telling and chart reading will not take place during this session.

  • Paint by Numbers

    PAINT BY NUMBERS is a group coming together to look at and talk about paintings. Please bring a painting (whatever that means to you) to this meeting to show and discuss. It can be your own, a friend's, or a reproduction of someone else's. Each group will run for 2 hours. We will look at 1 painting at a time. Perhaps we will hold them up or hang them on the wall. What will our discussion be like? The focus of our discussion will lead our claims about paintings back to the objects themselves.This group is based on the idea of a painting as physical object.
