The information I learned in this course was incredibly relevant. I hate that the course had to end. Anyone friendly to the arts should take this course.

Its a few years ago that I did this, but I still remember and value the course and the approach in teaching it. I have shared the information many times.

From the lesson

How can artistic and aesthetic experiences make a more engaged public? Is there a connection between individual transformative experiences with art and any broader societal impact? What is the role of the artist in a democracy?
