Easy Steps to Great Grammar

Writing Creative Writing: City Fiction Cities are spaces forever in flux. Neighborhoods change, buildings are razed and new ones take their places, people move in and out. Within this environment, the writer attempts to capture the pace, the texture and the meaning of urban living.

Contemporary writers like Tommy Orange and Sayaka Murata have explored the emergence of new and forgotten identities in urban spaces. By reading excerpts and short fiction, students will learn the techniques that allow these eminent authors to create narratives that revolve around the city. These techniques will then be practiced, refined and implemented into the students’ own writing through a series of assignments. 6425 6/29/2021 - 8/17/2021 6:30 - 8:30PM 8 ses Tu Challinor Online; Zoom $175

Twentieth Century Art: The Growth of Abstraction 1900-1950

The twentieth century art world was exciting and controversial. Artists moved away from representational to abstract work. Why?
