We believe that experiencing art is a profound and enriching journey. Our art history courses bolster knowledge, encourage individual introspection and nurture meaningful relationships. 

Art with Friends courses delve into diverse topics and themes, such as modern women artists, the history of fashion, the representation of the Black model in art, modern Jewish artists, European gardens, and Renaissance women artists. Each class offers a transformative educational experience that enriches the mind and fosters connections between intimate groups of art enthusiasts.

Each art history course is designed to accommodate all levels of art knowledge, with no prior background required. Courses are taught by Lauren Jimerson, PhD—an art historian specializing in modern art in France and the U.S., with a focus on gender studies, women artists, and visual culture.
