Course Dates

October 23-November 20

  • 9:00 a.m.
    A Journey Through American Literature in 25 Poems - $30

    This course aims to trace the entirety of American history and American literature by examining twenty-five of its greatest, most representative poems. We will approach the material chronologically, discussing the historical context in which each poem was written as well as its place in the history of American creativity.

    We will discuss each poem’s themes and content, of course, and also its poetics and language. This course especially welcomes people who consider themselves “bad” at reading poetry, or who might be uncomfortable, inexperienced, or out of practice when approaching a poem. Yes, some of this poetry will be challenging – even difficult – but it is also pain-free and, ultimately, immensely rewarding.

    Instructor: Dr. Mark Cirino, Associate Professor of English and Endowed Chair

  • 11:00 a.m.
    The Seven Deadly Sins - $30

    Pride, envy, wrath, lust, gluttony, greed, and sloth – these are the identified maladies which have been the subjects of a great deal of reflection in the Western tradition. This course brings together resources from psychology, philosophy, and theology to examine how and when these issues become problematic in the world today.

    Instructor: Terry D. Cooper, Ed., D., Ph.D., Psy.D.

  • 2:00-4:00 p.m.
    Painting Botanicals - $30

    In this course, students will be working on basic drawing skills and painting. Students should bring any combination of acrylic or watercolor paints (no oils), colored pencils, or markers, a small water container, canvas or paper plus something they would like to draw and paint (i.e. a photo of a botanical).

    Instructor: Michelle Peterlin will be your guide. She is a former member of the Rockwell Museum curatorial staff and has been a professional artist for 30 years.
