Course Reviews

"The course helped me look at writing as something that is not only meant for novel writers, but also see that everyone is a writer."
COURSE:
Keystone Memoir Course
REVIEW BY:
MM, CAPE TOWN
"This class provides an invaluable pathway into the understanding of contemporary art. Very few people have any kind of art education these days, and the artworks at the Norval are particularly challenging for the ordinary viewer (in my opinion). So I found this class amazingly helpful and a great learning tool, both for the art itself and about my own responses to the different pieces. Dawn Garisch, leading the class, exhorted us to choose a specific artwork, look carefully at it, and then contemplate it. Immersing myself in the ambiance of each piece greatly enhanced my understanding of the more abstract forms in the sculpture garden. Writing about one’s response to art that elicits a strong negative reaction opens up a different perspective on the work.  I cannot recommend this class too highly. It should be required for all new members to attend."
