Survey of 20th C Women Artists

  • Remainders Creative Reuse 1713 East Walnut Street Pasadena CA 91106 USA (map)
20th Century Women Artists Workshops

A hands-on 2-hour studio series, spotlighting the invaluable, yet under represented contribution of women artists of the mid to late 20th century. Each class will highlight a notable female artist from varied ethnic backgrounds - African-American, Latina, Native American, Asian, Eastern European, Middle Eastern, American and more. Each week there will be a short survey of the artist’s work, then a project inspired by it, taught by a currently practicing female artist. This series is designed to show how women of all ages and races have had strong voices in art historically, despite having found opposition in the traditional narrative of art history. The underlying purpose of this experiential series is to expand the narrative to fully include women as significant art contributors.

Ages 13 and up (ages 8-12 may register and attend with a participating adult)
