“You CAN Teach an Old Dog New Tricks!”
Monday, 5th January 2015 at 10.30am
Guest Speaker : Dr. Amir Cohen Shalev
This has been proven over the decades…and, “old dogs” CAN teach younger ones the tricks of the trade they have learned over their decades of lifelong experience.
Nowhere is this more evident than in the world of ART, where works, particularly paintings produced later in life, define these techniques.
Join us to hear renowned Professor Dr. Amir Cohen Shalev, share his knowledge of this topic. He will compare paintings of great masters produced in their midlife versus their old age.  The discussion will point out the significance of the later works to our understanding of human development and creativity.
