The Art and Poetry of Snow

A 4-session Zoom excursion into selected high points in the art and poetry of winter snows. Paintings and poems will be examined and discussed, along with two somewhat longer “homework” texts, Robert Frost’s 14-page “Snow” from Mountain Interval and the six-page prose-poem “Neiges” (Snows) by St. John Perse with French and English translation en face — both of these texts to be supplied electronically by the instructor. And finally, the course will culminate in the greatest series of snow paintings in history by Maine’s own Neil Welliver. 

     Instructor Winslow Myers returned to mid-coast Maine, where he grew up, after 40 years of teaching studio art and history of art in various venues in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. The most recent exhibition of his paintings occurred at River Arts in October of 2022 and his most recent publication is Walter Tandy Murch: Paintings and Drawings, 1925–1967. He served on the Board of the Coastal Senior College and has given courses for CSC such as “The Universe Story,” and “Appreciating Painting.”
