The speaker for our January 19, 2021, meeting will be Jan Masters. She was born in Alameda and raised as an Air Force brat in various states and countries. That probably accounts for her interests in languages, travel and cultural history. She has a BA in art history from UC Santa Barbara and a MA in art history from San Jose State.
She has had 3 professional careers. Her first was teaching art history at West Valley College. Her second (some 30 years) was in marketing communications and technical writing for several semiconductor firms in Silicon Valley. Her current career (11 years) is teaching non-credit art history, music history and other cultural history classes for the Older Adults Program of West Valley College.
Topic for the meeting:
—Introduction of the Older Adults Program: purpose and benefits to participants.
