hello DEAR COMMUNITY MEMBER, If you’re glad that the rains have passed and eager to get outside this summer, join us for a course in Community Education. Soak up the sun while painting, drawing, hiking, hitting a tennis ball and more through courses at our Kentfield and Indian Valley campuses and at additional locations throughout the county. We strive to provide relevant, engaging, accessible education. Keeping Community Education courses affordable is one of our highest priorities. Over the coming terms a minor fee increase, our first since 2010, will be instituted as a result of increased costs of providing quality education. As a fee-based program, we’ll continue to do all we can to provide you with the best education at the most affordable price possible. We’re proud to continue to provide free and lowfee courses and $50 scholarships for older adults. See page 23 for details. Additionally, thanks to generous support from private donations, the College of Marin Board of Trustees recently approved the creation of the Community Education Endowment. We’re grateful for this long-term investment in Community Education and look forward to using this opportunity to meet and respond to community interests. Wishing you a beautiful summer, Carol Hildebrand, Ed.M. Director, Community Education, Lifelong Learning and International Education

History EC | Paris In The 1960s The 1960s was doubtless the most fascinating decade in the history of modern day Paris. France along with the rest of the Western world was quietly sizzling in the middle of the Cold War. In 1960, France approached the end of the Algerian War, and 1968 saw huge rioting in the streets of Paris. Nevertheless, Paris buzzed with cultural creativity. The cinema experienced the development of the “New Wave,” led by Goddard and Truffaut; Brigitte Bardot propelled the “new woman,” intellectual cafes patronized by Beauvoir and Sartre were in full fashion. The artist Yves Klein shocked the world with the French artistic movement “Nouveau Realisme;” and the French fashion designers Yves de St. Laurent and Andre Courreges introduced the look of the sixties. 2805 | Harkins | KTD | AC 102 6 Mondays 2:10–4pm | June 12-July 17 $93 (MF $1) | ESCOM $71 (MF $1) Course cost includes materials fee.

EC | Bel-Ami, a Novel by Guy De Maupassant Guy de Maupassant was a famous 19th century French writer, known as “master of the short story” and representative of the naturalist school of writers. Bel-Ami is a tale of a young man attracted by power who attains great success. He comes faceto-face with the realities of the corrupt society in which he lives and learns to become a social climber in a world in which honesty has no place, and love is a means to an end. Written when Maupassant was at the height of his success, Bel-Ami is a novel of great frankness and cynicism, but it is also filled with a total joy for life. It depicts scenes and characters of Paris in the “Belle Epoque” with wit, sensitivity, and humanity. Join us to learn, analyze, and discuss the psychology of wealthy French society during the XIX century. 2825 | Harkins | KTD | AC 102 6 Wednesdays 2:10–4pm | June 14-July 19 $ 93 (MF $1) | ESCOM $ 71 (MF $1) Course cost includes materials fee.

Photography Macro Photography Come celebrate the natural world and learn how to photograph close up where the inside of a flower becomes a world of it’s own. Carrying on the tradition and spirit of the late photographer, Ernest Braun, we’ll practice “wet belly” photography--the art of laying down prone, seeing and feeling the magic before you, and letting time drift away as you photograph and push yourself to explore visually in new ways. Students will receive group and individual support with time split between learning the tools and techniques of macro photography and shooting in the field. You’ll need a camera that can focus to within a few inches of the lens, hopefully using a macro lens, extension tube, or close up lenses, a tripod, preferably one that can be extended to lay close to the ground, and patience to explore, practice, and play. 2754 | Thaler | KTD | SMN 224 1 Saturday 10:10am-4:30pm | June 24 $68 (Includes MF $5) SUMMER 2017 | 15
