Gene is absolutely certain that anyone can understand art. Regardless of your background, occupation, or creative skill set, this informative, lively, and entertaining presentation can teach anyone how to experience art from an artist's viewpoint.

Gene will cover the art history essentials and send you off with a new perspective on interpreting art and developing your own creativity.

Teacher was great. The location in front of the elevators was probably a poor choice- as people tend to congregate and talk there so a bit distracting. More to teacher than students.

I enjoyed the class and appreciated the lecturer's enthusiasm. 2 areas for improvement: 1. space - we were in a room that was not soundproof and there was frequently competing noise 2. there were no female artists included in art history until the last slide of the class (Dada period). A quick Google search could have rounded this out.
