NEW Course: Fabulous Female Artists

Course: Fabulous Female Artists

Women have always been around as artists, but when asked to name 10 female artists even museum visitors have a hard time coming up with their names! This is no surprise since 85% of the artists in museums are male and white (read more about the numbers here).
During this chronological course we will discuss at least 25 female artists each class. This is also just a selection of the number of artists that have been around in that particular time frame.
It includes work of the more famous Sofonisba Anguissola, Artemisia Gentileschi, Berthe Morisot, Camille Claudel, Hilma af Klint and Frida Kahlo, next to a whole line of others who are less famous. The majority of these participants is from Western Europe, although when the course progresses some (Native/Afro)American and Asian artists also pass by.
Female artists have been active in a wide range of media and even though we will see a lot of painting, there is also room for sculpture, photography and applied arts.
After this course you will be able to name more than one female artist and you will know that BESIDES every great man, there is a great woman!

This course is a hybrid course which means you can be physically be present or joining the class live online while the class is being recorded for later viewing (in case you have missed the class). The recordings of all ten classes and the extras can be accessed in a secured environment (My Library) on the website of Casa dell’Arte for three months after the end of the course.
