This was an amazingly informative and enjoyable course. The lecturer was extremely knowledgeable about both the art, the artists and the surrounding culture. Each lecture had numerous pictures of the prints, often accompanied by music and videos. I've rarely encountered such a well=prepared lecturer who had clearly put in a lot of work in preparing the course. He left two times during each lecture for questions and discussion and made the experience feel much more personal and reflective of each student's needs and interests. Every session was totally enjoyable and made me want to further explore the subject matter and these prints.
Dr. Campbell’s conversations are always very well organized, easy to follow, insightful and interactive. This 5 part course on Japan’s woodblock prints was no exception. If any of Dr. Campbell’s topics interest you, don’t hesitate in attending. You will come away with a greater understanding and awareness of the subject matter.
Highly educational and entertaining lectures. Great slideshow, the addition of the videos and sounds is very effective and helpful.
Gavin is very accomplished in his subject and was easy to listen to. He projected enthusiastically and the lecture was well illustrated with slides. Although I like art of any kind, the history of the woodblock prints and how they were produced and the life behind the prints was fascinating. I shall definitely try to do more reading on the subject. Thank you for such a delightful 90 minutes!
