LOCAL>> Virtual Class: Art History with Kerrin Meis - Discover Jordan Beyond Petra (via Zoom)

Online art history class exploring a range of sights in the country of Jordan

Two Saturdays: February 13 and 20

Hosted via Zoom • Live • 1:00-3:00pm PT • $80

The Nabatean city of Petra is indeed worth a trip to Jordan, but let’s not miss the country’s other spectacular sights.

Our virtual journey takes us to Umayyad caliphs’ desert castles with astonishing frescoes; the huge, well-preserved Roman city of Jerash; Mount Nebo and the city of Madaba, famous for its map of the Near East; and a score of other treasures such as Umm ar Rasas, where the floors of Byzantine era St. Stephen and other churches are covered with perhaps the best mosaics extant.

We will visit the ancient city of Philadelphia—now Amman—its citadel, great temple, and museum. A day in the ancient city of al Salt with its lovely Ottoman architecture, and a night in a Bedouin camp in Wadi Rum, complete this fascinating experience—unless we have the urge to spend a day on the beach of Aqaba or bobbing about on the Dead Sea. The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan welcomes us!

Kerrin Meis taught art history at SFSU for ten years and has led study tours in Europe. Her Book Passage classes have been favorites for years.
