This seminar is to share information about favorite painters of any era with other art lovers.

If you are interested in art, chances are that you have a favorite painter.  Here’s your chance to share your enthusiasm with a group of other art lovers.  In this seminar, we will cover not just the paintings, but the artist’s life, his or her influences from and on other artists, and how the critics reacted to the paintings. Images of the artists’ works may be taken from digital sources or books/paper.

Role of Participants:
Participants will prepare a presentation covering the points listed above and show and explain images of the artist’s work.  Discussion may follow the presentation or be a part of it with questions and comments.  Assistance with technology used for presentations will be available in the room.
