Classes at the Aesthetic Realism Foundation

A new semester of classes is now beginning at the Aesthetic Realism Foundation, a not-for-profit educational institution in Soho, in New York City. Based on the philosophy of Aesthetic Realism, which was founded in 1941 by the great American poet and educator Eli Siegel, classes in poetry, acting, voice, the drama, education, "Learning to Like the World," (for young people ages 5-12), anthropology, marriage and more. A new class on the film, "If it Moves It Can Move You; Opposites in the Cinema," will be taught by award-winning filmmaker Ken Kimmelman.

This education enables persons of any age to learn about the relation of art and life in these deep and lively classes based on this principle by Mr. Siegel: "The world, art, and self, explain each other: each is the aesthetic oneness of opposites."
