Have you started a book but haven't been able to finish it? Do you feel like you have all the pieces but don't know how to stitch them together? Do you feel overwhelmed, blocked, or stuck? In You Can Complete That Book!, you will learn the reasons writers get stuck, and how to get back in the flow, write effortlessly, find solutions for structural issues, navigate the publication process and ultimately complete the book.

Writing challenges us to face our core issues. As a result we become experts at procrastination, perfectionism, or simply making sure we are always too busy to finish. Underneath all these defenses, there is gold: the nugget of pure creativity waiting to be expressed once you learn how to make room for it to be revealed.

Leslie Keenan is a writing coach, teacher and editor with 30 years' experience. She lives in Marin County, California with her daughter.

Class:  Kerrin Meis - Post-Impressionism: What Does it Mean? (Corte Madera)

Friday, February 9, 2018 - 1:00pm

Three Fridays; Feb. 9, Feb. 16, & Feb. 23, 2018 • 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm • $105

The term, invented by a British art critic, really only means that which follows Impressionism. It is not a style of painting. We study the works of a diverse group of artists including  Seurat, Signac,  Cezanne, Gauguin, Van Gogh and Toulouse-Lautrec: While these  artists laid the groundwork for a  modern art based on concepts, process and emotion rather than on a direct visual  response to  reality ,they point to vastly different directions the world of art would take .Seurat's pointillism influenced Fauvism; Cezanne's experiments with space inspired Cubism; in contrast to these scientific approaches the introspective paintings of Gauguin and Van Gogh paved the way to Symbolism and Expressionism. Toulouse-Lautrec posters are the very essence of Art-Nouveau. 

Kerrin Meis taught art history at SFSU for ten years, and she currently teaches for the OLLI programs at Dominican University and UC Berkeley. She leads study tours in Europe. Her Book Passage classes have been big favorites for years.
