This short video below introduces you to one of these women.

It’s hard to believe it, but we are ONE week away from the end of the course! You will have hopefully learned about so many more women artists in these eight weeks, and gained a new respect for some of the ones you already had heard of. This week we are studying the women across the globe who have sparked a new movement in women’s art. They come from Africa, Asia, South America, and the Middle East. They have frequently had to fight for their art, having it not accepted by the status quo.
This short video below introduces you to one of these women. In her country of Saudi Arabia, it was not only unusual to see a woman so publicly doing her artwork, but until quite recently, it was strictly forbidden to display ANY art that was figurative in the Kingdom. The punishment for doing what she does now would have been swift and severe. Now she works with the blessings of the government of Saudi Arabia.

How can art be practiced for its own sake, separate from society?
Why is it detrimental to believe that art is a form of escape?
