Study Group - FY22

Theme: Textiles of Asia: Living, Dyeing and Cultures Intertwined

The Study Group provides a learning opportunity for those who would like to deepen their knowledge of the many facets of Asian art.  Each year when a new theme for study is chosen, members choose a topic to study in depth, present it to the group and learn from all the other members’ presentations.  It is a stimulating and enjoyable way to learn and make new friends. We meet on Zoom and attendance is limited to AAC members and Museum docents.

We meet at 10:00 a.m. on Zoom on the third Monday of September and October and March through June. The February meeting is held on the second Monday so we can celebrate the long Presidents Day weekend.
