posted message: Hi all and welcome to week two, when we'll be moving on and taking our first "visit" to a museum, doing a short writing assignment, and then moving on to look at art of the Netherlands. Please note that the writing assignment is simply for your own practice. (Note that on Saylor.org there is a "Guide to Responding" that will help you evaluate your work.) How is everyone progressing? Did you all make it through last week's materials? Unfortunately nobody was able to chat last Friday. I hope you all will arrange a time that works for you, if this continues to be a bad time. I'm available weekdays, and Friday makes the most sense, as by that point we'll have made it through most of the week's materials. Is anyone free Friday afternoon (EST)?
