St. John’s College welcomes the community to participate in evening and weekend seminars and fine arts classes, through its Continuing Education and Fine Arts Program (CEFA). Engage in lively seminar discussions of classic works, which include Jane Austen’s “Persuasion” and “Emma;” novellas by Thomas Mann; Shakespeare’s “Measure for Measure;” the poetry of Elizabeth Bishop; Darwin’s “The Descent of Man;” and works by pre-Socratic philosopher Heraclitus of Ephesus. The seminars are led by a St. John’s tutor. Participants can also immerse themselves in fine arts workshops such as “The Craft of Story: Fiction,” and the art of “Landscape Painting,” and “Figure Sculpture in Clay.” Fine arts instructors are noted regional writers and artists.
Programs are held on weekday evenings on the Annapolis campus and meet once a week for six to ten sessions. Weekend seminars meet three times over the course of one weekend. Single weekend seminars and fine arts are also available. All classes are open to the public, individuals 18 and older. Fall classes begin September 14. Tuition ranges from $135 to $200. An additional materials fee may be required.
