In this unique class we will explore the works and contributions of women artists through the time line while experimenting with their artistic styles as we proceed. This class will extend from the Neoclassical art of the late 18th Century to the Contemporary art of today. Some of the artists we will cover are: Rosa Bonheur, Mary Cassatt, Georgia O'Keeffe, Sculptor Barbara Hepworth, Photographer Dorthea Lange, Surrealist Frida Khalo, Abstract artist Helen Frankenthaller, and Artists Judy Chicago and Miriam Shapiro (co-founders of the Feminist Art Movement of the '70's) as well as some local artists.
