Through interesting and entertaining slide shows, visit the major art museums of Europe and New York and learn the big names in art history. By touring the Louvre, the Rijksmuseum and other celebrated art museums, discover why the paintings of great artists like Raphael, Rembrandt, and Renoir are rated among the world’s greatest treasures.

3rd Quarter:

"The Wonderful World of Women Artists"

Brighten your Winter with an expedition into the hidden world of Women Artists, with its secret marvels and stunning achievements. Powerful men like Michelangelo, Rembrandt, and Picasso dominate the history of art, but beneath the surface, powerful women like Gentileschi, Vigée-LeBrun, and O'Keeffe were making art from a woman's point of view, creating art with new themes, new forms, and new styles that will expand your idea of what makes art great. Throughout art history, women artists have demonstrated a drive to create art that is literally awe-inspiring. For artists, this is an exciting way to strengthen your own work; for art lovers, this is a chance to see what you've been missing.
