Join film critic Robert Denerstein and me tonight, 6:30, at the Art Students League of Denver, 200 Grant St., Denver, to view and discuss the movie "Seraphine". Popcorn provided. $12 members, $15 non-members.

In the second to last episode of "Art Goes To The Movies", we watch a 2008 film by Martin Provost about the life and career of a French maid called to paint. She often even concocted her own paints. Remarkably before her time and self taught, Seraphine was also known as "Seraphine de Senlis". An art bio-pic not to be missed.
