Want to learn about the great artists of the world? Can’t afford the air-tickets and hotels to visit the galleries? Then enjoy the galleries and collections that Google has digitised.

You may be able to find it all on your home computer, or even your smart phone, but it is much more fun to have a guide and discussion group. Lifelong Learning kzn is arranging to use the computer facilities at Varsity College North every afternoon during the LLLkzn Summer School from December 3 to 7 from 13h30 to 16h30.

“We are hoping to recruit some guides, who will each facilitate for one afternoon, utilising different parts of the collections (different subject-matter, or periods, or styles of art),” say the organisers. “Volunteers for this should please email us giving us details of their art interests. In addition, to encourage active engagement, participants will be expected to form their own google galleries, using click and drag as on the google sites, to display these to the class and explain their choices, during the last part of each afternoon.

Fees: R100 per afternoon, or R200 for all five afternoons if booked and paid by eft before November 28.

Life Long Learning – KZN (LLLkzn) is a non-profit making organization offering educational events and courses to the general public in the province of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. More information at
