How many female painters can you name? For most of us, only a few, but history is filled with them. They painted lovely still lifes, revealing portraits, dramatic landscapes, and even Biblical scenes that were officially off limits for women to tackle. A few of them are Artemisia Gentileschi, Rachel Ruysch, and Berthe Morisot. The lives of these women are fascinating. They struggled, as all of us do, but they continued to paint because that is what they were born to do. Jimmie Thomas, along with participants, will meander through history and learn about these women and their magnificent creations. Join the journey!

Instructor: Dr. Jimmie Thomas
