Ancient World meets The New Shape of Learning 2004

The Parthenon will partner with The Renaissance Center to present The Sunset Lectures in Art History

Release Date: 6/3/2004. Expired: 7/6/2004

Every Tuesday evening from 5:30 -7:30 during the months of June and July, we will offer special lectures by Libby Lacock the chairman of the speakers Bureau at the Parthenon. Both the beginner and the more experienced Art History student can profit from the slides and lectures.

Are you intimidated by Art ? Do you feel that you would like to know more about it? Did you have it years ago in school and would like a refresher? Then this art course is for you.

We start at the very beginning with the cave paintings and go through the development of art through the Roman Period in the first session. The second session in July will cover Art from the Early Christian and Byzantine period, through Art of the Middle Ages. You will see art presented in the historical setting in which it was created. Finish off your day with a relaxing art getaway!
