What you'll learn in this unique class:

Spanish Colonial Revival Architecture & Malibu Potteries Tile: Adamson House and Serra Retreat

Day 1, Lecture:  Proclaiming its romantic heritage from a variety of influences from many cultures and countries, Spanish Colonial Revival style is a mixture of graceful living, indigenous design, and historical references from Spanish, Moorish, Mexican, and Native American cultures.  This course will focus on the rich cultural heritage of the Southwest and early California and the many cultural influences upon these areas.  The cultural heritage and living style of Spanish Colonial Revival will be viewed in vibrant images of brightly colored tiles, adobe construction, and sun-warmed patios.

Day 2, Field Trip:  Enjoy a docent-led tour to the Adamson House in Malibu, an exquisite example of a richly colored and elegant Spanish Colonial Revival style home with resplendent Malibu Potteries tile.  We will then visit Serra Retreat with its panoramic ocean and mountain views, where we’ll stroll among its restful and inspirational gardens, complete with fountains and Malibu Potteries tile.  Wear comfortable walking shoes and casual clothes.  Adamson House admission of $7 and beach parking of $6 is not included in the course fees.
