Art with Friends

Transformative Cultural Experiences

Since 2020, spearheaded by Dr. Lauren Jimerson, our courses have fostered not only knowledge but also intimate connections. Our specialized courses focus extensively on women artists across different eras—Renaissance, Modern, and Contemporary. Discover the influential works of Modern artists like Tamara de Lempicka, Sonia Delaunay, Hilma af Klint and Suzanne Valadon through our foundational course on Modern Women Artists. This course, based on Dr. Jimerson's research from her book Painting Her Pleasure, highlights the remarkable contributions of female painters and sets the stage for further cultural enrichment.

Art with Friends is dedicated to creating small, supportive communities, particularly for mature women. Our programs are perfect for retired women seeking intellectual stimulation and community engagement. Through our online courses and trips, participants forge lasting friendships and engage deeply with cultural content that resonates with their life experiences.

Join us to explore, learn, and connect through the rich array of art history courses with Art with Friends—a portal to cultural enrichment and personal connection.
