Introduction to Virtual Programing
Membership offers you pre-recorded, live presentations by Jane Blair to view as many times as you like.
These videos are actual, spontaneous ArtMatters performances, presented to live audiences, only edited for time. The recordings were all created pre-pandemic, and intended for internal training purposes, so please forgive the less than perfect filming. Enjoy them for their unpredictable, one might say "charming" quality.
You also have an option of a live, interactive, zoom presentation.

Bonus Video - OCTOBER
Known as the “Poet”, he was one of the most versatile artists of the 20th Century. He merged the traditional images of his native Russian, Jewish culture with the modern styles of Cubism, and Fauvism. His paintings portray stories and fables, ideals of freedom, dreams of love, nightmares of war, passionate emotions and soul refreshing humor. He never finished a canvas until something in it “surprised” himself. Join us for a retrospective look at his work, his life, and his unique perspective of the world.
