Fifteen regular and three on-going groups are scheduled and the mix of veteran and new instructors promises to challenge and inform students. Most begin in late September, but visit CSC’s website at www.coastalseniorcollege.org for individual start dates and complete course descriptions as well as directions to the various course locations in the Mid-coast.
“What Makes a Great Painting?” with Winslow Myers poses the question, “Is excellence in art merely subjective, or can we have a meaningful dialogue about what makes good art good?” This is the first class Myers will be teaching in his field of art history. Exploring the exciting linguistic world of everyday language is instructor Barbara LeGendre’s goal as she leads the class “On Language: What's Right? What's Wrong? Who Decides? Does It Matter?” “The Shocking Truth About Money,” taught by Randall Parr, discusses the history of money, banking and financial panics, and, another new instructor, John Bradford, will be teaching a fascinating history class, “France, England and the Wabanaki: The Cultural Chaos of 17th Century.”
