THE MASTERS * A LETTER from Karen Stephens

COURSE: Spanish Fine Arts and History

Dear Karla.

Thank you so much for running the Art History course. It was really interesting and has opened my mind to so many new things.

I knew very little about art and have always dismissed certain types of art without knowing anything about the paintings or the artists.

Now, through the course, I know more about the Spanish masters, both about their lives and their innovative techniques. I now appreciate what the artists were trying to depict.

Learning in the classroom is one thing but being able visit Toledo and Madrid on the road trip, to see some of the original paintings, was something else. It was a wonderful weekend.

Thank you for all your hard work.
