Learning to See – An Interrelationship with Creative Thinking
Wednesday, June 20, 6:30 p.m.
OR Saturday, June 23, 2 p.m.
“Learning to See” is for anyone who likes the arts and nature and would really like see the world from another perspective. In our early years, everything that we looked at was fresh and exciting. As we grow older, we often look at everyday things without really seeing anything. Re-learning to see, as we did in our younger days, will open up a whole new way of thinking about our surroundings. Registration requested at 860-928-4948. Free to CAS members; $5 non-members.
