Creative Connections Between Artists and Writers

Abuse, neglect and exploitation of older adults in both institutional settings and the home is a major problem. But not all perpetrators necessarily set out to harm an older person.

Sicily: Crossroads of Civilization - Art, Architecture, Culture and History from the Greeks to The Godfather

September 16, 2019 - October 14, 2019 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.



From the mysterious Elymians to the Phoenicians, from the Carthaginians to the Greeks, the Romans to the Byzantines, and from the Arabs to the Normans, the history of the Mediterranean is contained in microcosm in Sicily.  In this class, we will visit all the temples, villas, and gloriously decorated churches and mosques these conquering waves of immigrants left us.  Mt. Etna's destructive power resulted in perfectly preserved Baroque cities.  We'll even visit the sites used in the filming of Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather.  Along the way, we will discover how such ethnic diversity created a paradise on earth and some of the most glorious art in Western Europe.

This class is being presented by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Johns Hopkins University in partnership with The Village at Rockville.  Classes are $120 for Village Residents/ Osher Members and $135 for Non Residents/Community Members.  To register, email osher@jhu.edu or call 301-294-7047.

This class will be taught by Laura Donnelly, MA, who earned her master's in Medieval and Early Modern European History from the George Washington University where she concentrated on 15th and 16th century British history.

The Art of the Garden: from Rome to the Renaissance; from Versailles to Giverny and Beyond

October 21, 2019 - December 9, 2019 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.



Who doesn't love a garden?  From the Biblical Garden of Eden to the Hanging Gardens of Babylon--one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World --gardens are part of our civilization.  The Romans had their interior peristyles and Campanian villas: gardens, with pools, fruit trees, fish ponds -- cool, peaceful, often colorful, and restful.  Medieval monasteries had their cloisters.  In the Renaissance garden, design and construction became a science that developed into high art in Tudor England and 17th C France, culminating in the landscape garden of the 18th C.

In this class we will look at gardens and their design from Rome to the Renaissance, from Versailles to Giverny and beyond.  We will study the history of the garden design and notable landscape gardeners.  The class will be heavily illustrated with photos from life and gardens in paintings and where to see them in film and locally. 

The class will be taught by Laura Donnelly, MA, who earned her master's in Medieval and Early Modern European History from the George Washington University where she concentrated on 15th and 16th century British history.

This class is being presented by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Johns Hopkins University in partnership with The Village at Rockville.  Classes are $120 for Village Residents/ Osher Members and $135 for Non Residents/Community Members.  To register, email osher@jhu.edu or call 301-294-7047.
