Much like looking at and appreciating the collections of others, seeing the world through the senses of dedicated professionals is like taking a journey to a dimension for the first time. Prof Patterson is very relatable with the lessons and teachings. With largely monocular vision myself, visual experience has a special personal appreciation and many of her lectures gave me flashbacks of my grandmother who, though also not an artist, often pointed out her surroundings in ways that caused reason to pause and think. This was a Great Course! Thank you!
