After a break, our second class will introduce some of the most famous and fabulous works of European artists such as Leonardo da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa,” Michelangelo’s “David,” Sandro Botticelli’s “Birth of Venus,” and Titian’s “Venus of Urbino.”

We will engage with members of the local community and hear from some of the religious friars who live on the San Pedro Center's grounds. They will talk about their way of life in the Franciscan tradition and answer questions. We’ll then be joined by a local organist who will present an organ recital in our beautiful San Pedro Chapel. The evening will end with time to socialize with fellow Road Scholars, play games, complete a puzzle, or just relax.
