The Saltzman Foundation’s Life Long Learning Institute at the Katz JCC offers countless opportunities for adults to expand their knowledge, meet new friends and keep their minds sharp. Registration for the spring 2017 session, which runs February through May, is open to JCC members as of Wednesday, Jan. 25 and to the community on Monday, Jan. 30. Courses consist of a wide range of subjects, including film appreciation, opera, history, literature and fine art, current events, mah jongg, bridge, knitting, and more.
Several unique and engaging programs to consider this semester include a lecture with David Bianculli, TV critic, on Wednesday, Mar. 15, who will explain how the art of must-see and binge-watch television evolved. Join for a night out of canvas painting on Tuesday, Apr. 25, and on Thursday, Apr. 27, the recurring bagel breakfast will focus on Philadelphia and its major role in film over the years.
This semester, the recurring drawing and painting class will be held at the brand new art studio at Lions Gate, run by esteemed instructor David Butler, and don’t miss the Monday film appreciation class, which will center on the great director Alfred Hitchcock.
In addition to this semester’s classes, four upcoming trips include the Brooklyn Museum on Mar. 9, Longwood Gardens on May 23, and two Broadway shows in New York City: “Groundhog Day: The Musical” on May 7 and “Hello Dolly!” Starring Bette Midler on June 11.
