Today Gustave Klimt (1862-1918) is best known for his now famous painting, The Kiss. In his own time, Klimt was the enfant terrible of Vienna’s turn-of-the-century art scene. In 1900, his designs for the University of Vienna murals prompted a firestorm of controversy amid charges of obscenity. Learn more about this artist’s unique accomplishments, his unconventional lifestyle, and the influences that shaped his distinctive “Golden Period” style.

All proceeds from this lecture series will go to support the educational programming at DFAC.

Vincent Van Gogh created 70 paintings in the last 70 days of his life. His last portrait,which pictured Dr. Paul Gachet, his caretaker in Auvers, is among the most revered works from this intensely creative period. In 1990, the portrait sold at auction for $82.5 million, making it the world's most expensive painting at that time. Dee's program examines the circumstances that produced this work and shaped its distinctive style. In addition, you’ll hear the fascinating story of the painting’s unusually eventful provenance, including an update on the bizarre circumstances surrounding the painting’s current location.

Want to improve the graphic "punch" of your relief prints? This is an un-messy, informal printmaking seminar and roundtable discussion, with examples and handouts in developing better one-color and multiple color prints. We'll talk about the principles of good design and how to adapt your references specifically to relief printmaking. How to use traditional illustration techniques to develop your ideas. How to avoid design pitfalls when using Photoshop and other digital tools. And how good design will better organize your workflow. (You can apply a lot in this seminar to your 2D art and illustration in general!)
