The Art Appreciation Lecture at the Older Adult Center was not for Me


I always enjoy going to art museums to peruse the works of famous artists.  Pop art is my favorite genre.  When the Older Adult Center advertised an art appreciation lecture, I wanted to check it out.  The teacher, a specialist in art history and museum education, showed the participants an illustrated children's book from 1931.  She micro-analyzed the artwork and the associated text.  The audience members were interested and made many comments.  I was bored to death.

I was hoping there would be a discussion of the work of a renowned artist, but I was wrong.  I just have to say that this art appreciation is not for me.  The teacher said that she comes to the center once a month.  I will not go the next time since the class is just not for me.
