  • Colorado Council on Economic Education (CCEE): Learning, Earning, and Investing, 8:30-4:30 p.m. – Ten years after the introduction of the euro, the European Union faces significant stresses. The Greek debt crisis has spiraled into region-wide liquidity shortages and pushed the region close to (if not into) recession. This seminar considers the source of the crisis in the EU, the limits the EU faces in addressing this crisis, and likely future course of the EU. Specifically, we will consider the prospects of the EU breaking apart versus the chance for an ever closer economic and political union. The implications for the U.S. are significant.  For more information and registration, please click here.
  • Denver Art Museum: Teacher Workshop: Georgia O’Keeffe: Inspired by Place and Personality, 9-4:30 p.m. – “When I got to New Mexico that was mine,” Georgia O’Keeffe stated. “As soon as I saw it that was my country. I’d never seen anything like it before, but it fitted to me exactly. It’s something that’s in the air, it’s different. The sky is different, the wind is different.”  Teachers will explore how O’Keeffe was deeply inspired by her sense of place—New Mexico’s colorful mountains, geologic forms, and expansive blue sky. The day will begin with an interactive lecture by DAM Master Teacher of Western Art Molly Medakovich. Teachers will begin to explore their own sense of place through journaling and sketching activities that will kick off a painting session taught by Sharon Rouse. The day will conclude with a fun, creative session on bringing O’Keeffe’s artistic personality to life through basic theater techniques, taught by Buntport Theater. Graduate credit (.5) will be available through Adams State College.  For more information and registration, please click here.
