Check out this complete list.
My top 2 from this list: Artemesia Gentileschi (1593-1656) and Louise Bourgeois, left, (1911-2010), a fantastic contemporary sculptor and fiber artist!
Thanks Michael Hernandez for finding this :)
For those of you that have Instant Netflix, here is a list of documentaries that you should definitely watch. If you watch one on your own time, write up at least 1 page of notes that you've learned from this documentary AND write a paragraph of how it is relevant to our class, I will give 5 extra credit points on your next quiz that applies. Ongoing. (That could be the difference between a B and an A!)
