Immaculata University Announces May Workshops
Immaculata University will offer on-campus undergraduate workshops for personal and professional development during the month of May.
PHILADELPHIA MUSEUM OF ART I. This seminar explores the expansive collection of American and European art at the PMA. Since its founding in 1876, the museum has acquired major examples of art. The first part of the tour includes works by American artists Thomas Eakins, Mary Cassatt, Homer, Tanner, and A. Warhol. The second part of the tour looks at the Renaissance and Baroque Periods of art. Students meet on Friday, May 29, from 5:00 â€“ 9:00 p.m., at Immaculata for an overview of the works to be viewed at the museum and to engage in "hands-on" experiences, trying techniques used by masters. On Saturday, May 30, from 9:30 a.m. â€“ 4:30 p.m., the class meets at the entrance to the museum. The cost is $400 for one credit or $180 for non-credit.
IMPACT OF CHRONIC ILLNESS. Physical illness impacts far more people than the person with the actual diagnosis. The effects on loved ones can be challenging, yet the medical community too often overlooks this reality. In this workshop, students explore the impact of physical illness on the ill individual and on family members. Students discuss common emotional reactions to illness and explore a variety of psychosocial strategies for supporting families impacted by chronic illness. This course is available on Friday, May 29, from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. and continues on Saturday, May 30, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The cost is $400 for one credit or $180 for non-credit.
FORGIVENESS: BEST REVENGE. This course explores the theological, biblical and pastoral aspects of mercy and forgiveness. It includes an in-depth analysis of Luke 15 and Psalm 51. Students discuss the process of forgiveness and its place in the lives of contemporary Christian disciples. This class is offered on Saturdays, May 30 and June 13, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The cost is $400 for one credit or $180 for non-credit.
