Courses

PLATO offers non-credit, participatory courses meant for seniors who want to continue learning, sharing and making new friends.The content and format of PLATO courses are determined by volunteer Course Coordinators and course participants. Any PLATO member can propose and coordinate a course.


Coming This Spring 2020 !!

This Spring, we welcome three new courses and new coordinators.

Joseph Koykkar, a composer and professor emeritus of UW will offer The Musical Evolution of the Beatles, a course that will explore the songs of the Beatles from the beginning of their recording career in 1962 to their last album in 1970.

Heather Williams, an artist and retired art and special education teacher, will introduce the art of drawing in a unique way in her course, Drawing as a Sacred Activity. This course will help participants find the artist inside themselves.

Soulcollage, is a course offered by Jeanne Bowman. Jeanne uses a simple creative process, which was created by psychotherapist Seena Frost. This process of creating a collage supports the individual’s self-discovery and access to inner wisdom.

We also welcome the following members who have stepped into a new role for PLATO

Mert Corwin will coordinate Current Events AM.

Tony Praza will coordinate Managing your Money.

We thank these coordinators and all our returning coordinators for offering PLATO members a wide range of interesting course choices.
