LITERATURE “UNDER THE PAVING-STONES, THE BEACH!”: THOMAS PYNCHON’S INHERENT VICE Ryan Pavano | Independent Scholar

By 1970, free love and the free market are in cahoots. “Counterculture” is code for recon, a twisted reconquest, and nobody’s quite sure who’s responsible. Sepia toned reflections on the morning after the 60s resurface here as L.A. smog, a conspiracy of real estate grifters, amphibious tax dodgers, Southeast Asian drugrunners, and a whole lot of Mexican grass. In this seminar-style class, we will examine Thomas Pynchon’s Inherent Vice in weekly installments alongside supplementary reading. COURSE CODE: VICE Sec. 01: 8 Tuesdays, 7:45-9:15pm. Begins Jun. 25 | $210

GRAPHIC NOVELS: ILLUSTRATING PERSPECTIVES Lee Hershey | Writer

We will examine how desire and passion, and their common counterparts cruelty and vulgarity, combine in his writing to produce an exceptionally strong aesthetic experience. We will focus on three novels which belong to three different periods in Nabokov’s brilliant career: Glory, The Eye, and, of course, Lolita. COURSE CODE: LOL A Sec. 01: 8 Mondays, 1-3pm. Begins Jun. 24 | $225

LOOKING AT ART WITH SIR ERNST GOMBRICH Leon Steinmetz | Artist and Author

Ernst H. Gombrich (1909-2001) was perhaps the most prominent 20th century art historian. The Director of the renowned Warburg Institute in London, he wrote a book, called The Story of Art. The uniqueness of this book is that it is fascinating to people very knowledgeable in the field, who would greatly enjoy Sir Ernst’s personal views on art—from antiquity to the present—as well as to people, who are practically unfamiliar with art and for whom this book would be an eye-opener. It is an enchanting and completely accessible introduction to great art. The required text is the first edition: gray cover paperback, Phaidon Press, ISBN 0-7148-3247-2.

WATERCOLOR PAINTING FROM THE FIGURE

MODERN CALLIGRAPHY AND ARTISTIC LETTERING

Nothing can replace using the human figure as a catalyst for developing your artistic skills; it is the most complicated and familiar form we have. Watercolor is particularly well-suited to painting the figure because of its fluidity to capture gesture and expression. We will work on a different project each week, studying different techniques so that you can develop your own personal watercolor style. Come to class with enthusiasm and an open mind!

Rachel Brown | Calligrapher, etsy.com/shop/rebellettering

In this class, you will learn the basics of modern calligraphy while also exploring your own calligraphy style. Using brush pens and other writing tools, we will cover lettering drills, letter practice worksheets, and quote composition, all while experimenting with new fun fonts and styles. By the end of the class, you will feel comfortable turning your writing into beautiful art—perfect for invitations, home decor, or gifts! No prior calligraphy experience or perfect handwriting needed! COURSE CODE: MCAL Sec. 01: 6 Tuesdays, 5:30-7pm. Begins Jun. 24 | $125 No class Jul. 9 & 23

BEETHOVEN’S EROICA AND THE ROMANTIC REVOLUTION

MUSIC

Richard Knisely | Music Educator

MUSIC APPRECIATION

CLASSICAL MUSIC APPRECIATION Andrew Goodridge | Pianist

Do you have an interest in classical music, but wish you could understand it better? This class gives an overview of its main genres, including solo instrumental music, chamber music, orchestral music, concerto, art song, opera, and choral music. Representative composers and their styles will be discussed, as well as tips on how to listen. No musical experience is required.

Jean-Jacques Rousseau sparked a revolution in thought, launching the Romantic period across Europe. Ludwig van Beethoven’s character was suited exactly to this new emphasis on subjective expression. His “Eroica” Symphony blew away the standards of symphonic form, forging a revolutionary new path toward the expression of personal and philosophical ideals in the arts. We will examine that explosive time in European thought and politics, and the symphony that launched a revolution in art. C O U R S E C O D E : E R OT Sec. 01: 6 Thursdays, 1-2:30pm.

OVERCOMING OPERAPHOBIA

INSTANT GUITAR FOR BEGINNERS

Michael Frank | Ph.D. Cornell University

Chris Brenne | Musician & Composer, B.A. Berklee College of Music

For whatever reason(s), opera seems to scare lots of people, even those who are otherwise deeply into what we call “classical” music.

This class will attempt to introduce this wonderful and fearful genre so as to make its charms more readily available. No prior experience with opera or other music required; just an open mind and open ears. C O U R S E C O D E : O O PA Sec. 01: 8 Wednesdays, 3:30-5:30pm. Begins Jun. 26 | $225

CCAE Spotlight On...

Bryan Ramey CCAE Visual Arts Instructor

What can be the challenges of working with watercolor for those new to it? Letting go. There are ways to tame the shifting nature of the water, but the more you fight it the less it does what you want. In class, we learn to work with those shifts and let go of that restricted nature.

What are some still-life objects you use/exercises you do when teaching watercolor? Everything! I’ve used cardboard boxes, flowers, apple chargers, even beer cans. Though the class favorite is typically doughnuts.

You teach the very popular Drawing in Bars class at CCAE. What are your favorite bars to take students? Personal favorites are the A4Cade, Lamplighter Brewery, and Saloon in Davis Square. I try to pick places based on both atmosphere and the specific concepts we are working on in class.
