The Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning (CLL) at Hodges University will begin its fall term by hosting a free lecture on the Impressionism period in art history. The lecture will be held at
the Barrington Terrace Learning Center, 5175 Tamiami Trail East, in Naples on Monday, October 3 from 1:00 pm to 3:00pm
Impressionism may be the world’s most beloved art movement. This 19th-century art movement originated with a group of Paris-based artists whose independent exhibitions brought them to prominence during the 1870s and 1880s. This class will explore the origins of the movement and the works of some of the most famous Impressionists including Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas, Berthe Morisot, Mary Cassat and, of course, Claude Monet.
The lecture will be conducted by Carol Jonson. She has been an instructor with the CLL since 1996, and has served on the CLL Advisory Board since its inception. Ms. Jonson earned her BA and MA in English Literature from Wayne State University in Detroit, and did post-graduate work in Medieval and Renaissance English at the University of Detroit. In 1995, she retired from a career in health care communications and marketing. Ms. Jonson is currently a consultant and freelance writer.
