An Education in the Grotesque: The Gargoyles of Yale University

$10

with Mathew Duman

Calendar Apr 3, 2018 at 6:30 pm, runs for 1 week

Join photographer and author Mathew Duman for a lecture and then a tour of Yale University in New Haven. Yale is an extraordinary place where you can observe gargoyles in their natural habitat! On this trek, Matt points out many of the grotesques & gargoyles that originally inspired him to explore the campus and to write his book: Those who have never been will find a visit to Yale's campus (60 - 90 minute tour ) to be a fascinating combination of academics, hisory, art and architecture. Those who are familiar with the campus will find that there are still many discoveries yet to be made because many of these sculptures still go unnoticed by even the most dedicated Yale. Either way, searching out these works of art can be almost as much fun as appreciating them. Binoculars recommended!

Do you have your high school diploma and are in need of basic skill sets in math and English that Father Time has helped us lose?  The East Haven Adult Learning Center understands the need to reacquire and define old skills we may have misplaced.  We’ve all struggled with the occasional misplaced comma, or the run-on sentence, not to mention the inability to multiply and divide fractions and decimals.  Let us help you refine these skills in classes that are made to be student friendly for those in need.  These old/new skills can help you return to college, find advancement in your present job, or give you the confidence to help your child with their homework.  Our instructors will lead you through a series of sequential steps that will bolster your confidence and self-esteem to tackle life-long learning.  Don’t let your inability to remember a few simple rules impact your future.  Come meet with us on Tuesday evenings to get you on the road to success. There will be no class on February 20 and April 17, 2018.
