Art and the Cosmic Connection

I loved the presentation and the accompanying script was very helpful , the images were high quality, beautiful. The only problem that I had was that the program was more difficult to adapt to a one-hour, one-time library program than I expected it to be. There were so many informative slides that it was hard to decide what to eliminate and when I gave the presentation with at least half edited out, my audience still grew restless and we did not get to draw until near the end. If anyone else had tried this as a one hour program for mixed informal learners (adults and children), I would like to know what they did to adapt it successfully. Otherwise I absolutely love this lesson and want to try it again.
