Radical Women: Female Artist from the Renaissance to Today  

Take a crash course in art history by learning about some of the most influential artists of the past 500 years, all of whom happen to be women. While this class will feature well known figures like Frida Kahlo and Georgia O'Keeffe, we will also explore the art and impact of artist who may be less familiar. The Baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi portrayed fierce female figures from the Bible in dramatic light and shadow. Berthe Morisot wowed at the impressionist Salons of the 1870s. Modernist Sonia Delaunay created colorful paintings and environments that spoke to the soul. Contemporary artist Carrie Mae Weems uses photography to confront the past and interrogate the present. This approachable class will introduce you to key artistic movements and how women have made their mark on the art world.
