TOLEDO * pt. 1 * 2017 Antiquity & Medieval
"Where to start? As always Karla shares so much knowledge.
I learnt the range of people's coming into Spain and eventually Toledo including the Romans, Visigoths, Jews and Muslims. This seat of learning also showed how many different cultures could live together in harmony and learn from each other.
I learnt how to understand the different styles of architecture, the more simple style of Rome to Mudejar from the Muslims. This was using materials readily available, clay to make bricks, stones from the fields. The skill to carve and embellish plaster.
I could go on for so much longer, but I can't wait for her next lecture, Toledo part 2.
If you want to learn about Spain and it's history Karla's teaching through art is wonderful. The feature I love about her teaching is her knowledge and passion. I Highly recommended her lectures."
