SUMMER 2013

CAMBRIDGE CENTER FOR ADULT EDUCATION


A BO U T THE COVER Late this winter on a cold and snowy day, the Center reached out to our students and teachers. We asked them to submit original works of art that capture the essence of summer for use in this catalog. “Boat in Summer,” the cover painting by Sharon Sass, most certainly speaks to the season. Most of us have enjoyed such a moment on the New England shore: coming upon a sailboat resting on the sand, a second boat reflected in the ripples of low tide, the richly colored sky behind. Sharon has painted with oils for more than 30 years and taken classes at the Center since 2000. Currently, she studies with Barbara Baum in our Studio School (see page 59). Her formal art training includes study at Interlochen Center for the Arts, the Rhode Island School of Design, and the University of New Hampshire. In addition to her life as an artist, Sharon has a psychotherapy practice. She lives with her family in Cambridge and Truro, Massachusetts — painting the scenery around her. You can see more of her work at sharonsass.com.

Sharon is one of a number of artists who responded to our call for images. We are sharing a few more of them here, as they not only capture the essence of this glorious season but also reflect the extraordinary work made by the community of artists busy in the Center’s studios. Pictured clockwise from top left are “Geraniums” by Gretchen DeGlopper (deglodesign.com), “Red Canoe” by Fay Hannon (fayhannon.com), “Farmhouse” by Kathy Burdon (kburdart. com), “Late August” by Amy Stein (amysteinart@gmail.com), and “Provence Sunflowers” by Catherine Ezell (ezellportraits.com). All these artists take classes at the Center, except for Catherine, who is one of our wonderful teachers.

CONSTRUCTION AHEAD

Construction Ahead The Center will be renovating the Courtyard at 56 Brattle Street this summer — along with the interior of the Dexter Pratt House. Classes will be held in the Annex at that same location throughout the summer. There will be a few days when there may be construction noise between 7:00 am and 3:00 pm, but we will work with our contractors and teachers to minimize the impact on classes held in the Art Studio and the Spiegel Auditorium. No construction will occur after 4:00 pm on Mondays through Fridays and on the weekends.

CAMBRIDGE CENTER FOR ADULT EDUCATION SUMMER 2013


LANGUAGES: FOREIGN

LANGUAGE PLACEMENT INFORMATION The Cambridge Center for Adult Education offers language classes ranging from beginner to advanced. It is very important that students register for classes appropriate for their levels. The following descriptions may help determine which level is the best match for you. We also have an online placement test for Spanish. Visit ccae.org and click on any Spanish class to access the link. BEGINNER LEVEL 1

BEGINNER LEVEL 4

This level is for students with no, or almost no, background in the language. Subjects to be studied include the alphabet (or character system), pronunciation, greetings, basic vocabulary, and sentence formation.

This level is for students who have completed Beginner Level 3 of the language at the Center or who have completed a similar class elsewhere (of 12 to 16 hours) within the last year. The grammar to be studied includes conditionals (for example, “If I were you, I would sign up for this class!”).

BEGINNER LEVEL 2

This level is for students who have completed Beginner Level 1 of the language at the Center or who have completed a similar class elsewhere (of 12 to 16 hours) within the last year. The grammar and vocabulary to be studied builds upon that in Level 1, with more attention to verbs. BEGINNER LEVEL 3

This level is for students who have completed Beginner Level 2 of the language at the Center or who have completed a similar class elsewhere (of 12 to 16 hours) within the last year. The grammar and vocabulary to be studied builds upon that in Level 2, with additional work on verbs.

INTERMEDIATE

This level is appropriate for students who already feel comfortable with their vocabulary and grammatical abilities, but wish to develop them further. Some of our language programs offer “low intermediate” and “high intermediate” sections. “Low intermediate” classes are a good bridge between Beginner Level 4 and intermediate. Similarly, “high intermediate” has been designed to ease a student’s transition from intermediate to advanced. ADVANCED

This level is intended for students who have strong skills in the language and can easily participate in a large variety of class discussions and exercises.

GREAT SCENES FROM SHAKESPEARE Michael Koran M.A., University of Chicago; windweaver.com/michaelkoran Sitting at a bar at the end of his long career, Shakespeare looks up through the skylight and prays, “God, after creating kings, queens, lovers, savages, magicians, and angels, I have no idea who I am.” Shakespeare then hears a voice from the heavens cry, “Neither do I, Willie, neither do I.” Come and discover all the characters roaming around our psyches when we enact scenes from Shakespeare’s plays, including Henry IV Part I, Hamlet, Antony and Cleopatra, The Tempest, and As You Like It. Acting out and watching film versions of these scenes will help us enjoy, understand, and be transformed by all the people we are. Limited to 12. COU RS E CODE : GS H A

NABOKOV: THE MASTER OF RIDDLES Katia Kapovich Writer, Editor, and Professor of Slavic Studies The great Russian-American writer Vladimir Nabokov was not only the author of the famously controversial novel Lolita but also one of the most dazzling prose stylists of the 20th century.

No prior knowledge of Nabokov’s fiction or the “unreliable narrator” theory is necessary. We’ll focus on three novels: Glory, The Eye, and, of course, Lolita. Limited to 16. C OUR SE C ODE: V LAD

MOVEMENT INTO WRITING / WRITING INTO MOVEMENT

Daniel Gewertz Freelance Writer Short memoirs and personal essays tend to have a tight focus, but their depth and power can be remarkable. Why do we long remember, and even cherish, certain newspaper columns or brief memoir pieces? We will concentrate on ways we can frame our memories and focus our opinions. Which small moments of our lives might make for great stories? What themes need to be stressed to make an essay effective? Why do some small memories haunt us, and how can we sculpt our chosen subject to bring its inherent power, succinctly, to the page? Essays will be read in class. Limited to 11.

LITERATURE AND WRITING

JOURNEY INTO THE MIND: CREATIVE FICTION WORKSHOP Katia Kapovich Writer, Editor, and Professor of Slavic Studies Vladimir Nabokov once said: “There are three points of view from which a writer can be considered: He may be considered as a storyteller, as a teacher, and as an enchanter.” Writers often overemphasize the narrative and teaching aspects of our craft. For as different as it may be to write a short story versus a novel or a life-based memoir, when successful, all three writing forms share one thing in common: a spellbinding tale.

Blacksmith House Poetry Series Celebrates 40 Years with Reading by

Kay Ryan

Christina-Koci-Hernandez

Kay Ryan, United States Poet Laureate and Pulitzer Prize winner, will read at The First Parish Church on Monday, June 3 at 6:00 pm. The reading caps the 40th anniversary of The Blacksmith House Poetry Series, founded by Gail Mazur. Ryan’s collections of poetry include The Niagara River, Say Uncle, Elephant Rocks Flamingo Watching, Strangely Marked Metal, Dragon Acts to Dragon Ends, Believe It or Not!, Odd Blocks: Selected and New Poems, and most recently, The Best of It: New and Selected Poems. About her work, J.D. McClatchy has said: “Her poems are compact, exhilarating, strange affairs, like Erik Satie miniatures or Joseph Cornell boxes. She is an anomaly in today’s literary culture: as intense and elliptical as Dickinson, as buoyant and rueful as Frost.” Ryan’s awards include the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, the Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize, a Guggenheim fellowship, an Ingram Merrill Award, a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Union League Poetry Prize, the Maurice English Poetry Award, four Pushcart Prizes, and the MacArthur “Genius” Award. Ryan’s poems and essays have appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Poetry, The Yale Review, Paris Review, The American Scholar, The Threepenny Review, and elsewhere. Ryan was elected a Chancellor of The Academy of American Poets in 2006 and was appointed the Library of Congress’s 16th Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry in 2008. We hope you can join us for this special reading, which will be followed by a Q&A and book signing.

Join us to discuss the musical and socio-political issues of 18th-century France. Musical examples by composers Hyacinthe Jadin, George Onslow, and Luigi Cherubini — an Italian who made his career in France and even became a French citizen — will illuminate the early-Romantic style and offer wonderful listening.

HISTORY AND CONTEMPORARY ISSUES BRITISH SETTLEMENT AND ECOLOGICAL TRANSFORMATIONS IN NEW ENGLAND DURING THE COLONIAL ERA

new

Rafael Pereira M.A., State University of New York, Binghamton The Pilgrims initiated a process of conquest in Massachusetts that brought about profound transformations in both the natural and the social worlds. The foreign settlers not only gradually displaced the Native Americans, but the new uses they made of the soil, the forest, and even the water generated dramatic consequences for the landscape. Native Americans believed in collective ownership of land and organized their relationship with the environment on the foundations of natural cycles, as well as local and regional needs. Europeans, in contrast, favored private property — and fencing — and organized their activities in accordance with the demands of the worldwide mercantile economy. We will examine the ecological and social dimensions of this “clash of civilizations.” Limited to 12. C OUR SE C ODE: NEC O

SNAPSHOTS OF NEW ENGLAND, ABOLITIONISM, AND THE AMERICAN CIVIL WAR

new

Rafael Pereira M.A., State University of New York, Binghamton New England played a crucial role during the Civil War. Just like at the time of the War of Independence, a number of significant events transpired here first. The first northern black battalion of the Union Army was organized in Massachusetts. And Angelina Grimké, a woman who addressed the Massachusetts State Legislature on the issue of slavery, was also a national first. Moreover, important historical figures closely associated with the war resided (and made their names) here; among them were famous abolitionists William Lloyd Garrison, Frederick Douglass, John Brown, and Wendell Phillips, as well as Charles Sumner, the leader of the Radical Republicans in Congress.

As Why writes in his (poignant) Guide to Ruby: “Ruby will teach you to express your ideas through a computer. You will be writing stories for a machine. Creative skills, people. Deduction. Reason.

ART EXHIBITIONS THE FLOWER SHOW AP RI L 16 T H ROU GH MAY 26

Opening Reception: Thursday, Apr. 25, 5:30-7:30 pm Flowers as a subject for painters present many problems. They are very beautiful all on their own; and as a subject for art, they come with centuries of baggage when it comes to symbolic meanings such as birth, death, and virginity. Artist and teacher Barbara Baum works with students to use flowers for figure/ground studies with color, light and shadow, composition, and atmosphere. Flowers are the vehicle or, simply, the object. This exhibition will feature some of those studies in all their glory.

COMMUNIT Y S U P P O R T E D A R T: A New Opportunity to Buy Artwork Directly from Artists The Cambridge Center for Adult Education, in collaboration with the Cambridge Arts Council, the Somerville Arts Council, Cambridge Local First, and Somerville Local First, is repeating its successful Community Supported Art (CSArt) program.

What is CSArt? CSArt is modeled on the highly successful “community supported agriculture” programs that have flourished across the country over the past 20 years. Inspired by Springboard for the Arts and mnartists.org in Minneapolis, MN, which ran the first community supported art program to overwhelming success, CSArt is the second such program in the U.S. Like community supported agriculture, CSArt is designed to link producers — in this case, artists who develop a limited edition of an original work of art — with consumers, who buy shares and receive three deliveries of art this fall. Rather than vegetables, fish, or dairy products, CSArt shareholder boxes will contain original works of art. Nine artists from the greater Boston area have been selected by a jury that includes representatives from the Cambridge Arts Council and the Somerville Arts Council, former CSArtists, and CCAE.

How CSArt Works CSArt shares cost $350. No more than 50 shares will be sold, to keep the line of art special. Shareholders receive nine works of art at three harvest parties — at a fantastic value — from emerging and mid-career artists, develop relationships with local artists, discover new artists, and explore a variety of disciplines. CSArt will feature unique art, not commercial, mass-produced articles. That’s what makes it special!

HOW TO BUY A SHARE This program is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council’s Adams Arts grant, and our partners: Cambridge Arts Council, Somerville Arts Council, Cambridge Local First, and Somerville Local First.

It’s simple! Go to ccae.org/CSArt/shares and fill out an online application.
