. The session will be conducted at the Barrington Terrace Learning Center, 5175 Tamiami Trail East, in Naples, on Monday, November 8 from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm.
Claude Monet, one of the world’s most beloved artists, planted gardens wherever he lived, but his masterpiece was Giverny, where he spent more than half of his life. These beautiful gardens were a never-ending source of inspiration for Monet as we will see looking at photos of the Giverny gardens and how Monet translated them into beautiful works of art.
The free session will be conducted by Carol Jonson. Ms. Jonson, who has a bachelor and master’s degrees in English Literature from Wayne State University in Detroit, was one of the first facilitators to teach with the Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning. She teaches classes ranging from literature and humanities to art history and classical mythology. In 2010, she was honored by Hodges University for 15 years of volunteer service.
