Study Group - FY24 - July 2023 - June 2024

Theme: All Things Korean

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 through November and February through June.
