> Ron,

I've taken art history courses were the instructor ended the course with a
meal from an artist's time period. We had a Van Gogh dinner once and a
Toulose dinner another time. It was very interesting and fun even if I didn't
care for all the food. Imagine what fun that could be for students, but this
was a class for teachers and the meals were prepared by restaurants. It often
comes down to time and money.
