Make yourself comfortable, grab a drink, maybe even your dinner, and click on the link you were sent to join the Zoom presentation…then sit back and watch Post Impressionism: From the Ballet to the Moulin Rouge.
In this lecture, ArtScapades will explore how Post-Impressionists both extended Impressionism while rejecting its limitations; the artists continued using vivid colors, a thick application of paint and real-life subject matter, but were more inclined to emphasize geometric forms, distort forms for an expressive effect and use unnatural and seemingly random colors. This lecture includes a look at the lives and works of Edgar Degas, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and Suzanne Valadon.
To register for this lecture, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will receive an email with a link to join.
Here is a summary of each topic:
What Happened –Recovery can be a difficult journey. During this first portion, the speakers explore feelings and experiences that came up in their darkest moments of living with a mental illness.
What Helps – Recovery starts with acceptance. Yet, it can be hard to come to terms with having a mental illness. Here, each presenter explains how they’ve achieved living as well as possible.

A powerful chronicle of the women who used their sewing skills to survive the Holocaust, stitching beautiful clothes at an extraordinary fashion workshop created within one of the most notorious WWII death camps. At the height of the Holocaust twenty-five young inmates of the infamous Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp—mainly Jewish women and girls—were selected to design beautiful fashions for elite Nazi women. Hoping the work would spare them from the gas chambers. This fashion workshop was called the Upper Tailoring Studio established by Hedwig Höss, the camp commandant’s wife, and patronized by the wives of SS guards and officers. Here, the dressmakers produced high-quality garments for SS social functions in Auschwitz, and for ladies from Nazi Berlin’s upper crust. historian Lucy Adlington exposes the greed, cruelty, and hypocrisy of the Third Reich and offers a fresh look at a little-known chapter of World War II and the Holocaust.
