Author Kaldenbach lecturing in front of Vermeer

Live Art Classes, fully curated webinars, remote museum tours, cultural enrichment in times of Corona / Covid 19. Expert led by Drs. Kaldenbach, cyberdocent *


At the moment, most museums in the world are either closed or are very limited in entry. That is a rough time for us art-lovers. However, this is also the perfect moment to learn more about a a number of western painters, art schools, era’s etc. I can guide you digitally through many, many art museums on Zoom. With the help of my 10.000+ image bank of my own photographs. I am also open to your suggestions about the theme or artists you wish to discuss into in an online class.

Take this unique chance to learn more about culture and art and briefly “get out” of your home.

Join me and learn more about art history, a painter or era. Just make an appointment for a day and a time. Enjoy your own class or join friends/family/colleagues. Send me an email at, so we can schedule a time and date. This is your art history platform!


Feedback, 31 July 2020, from Carnegie museums of Pittsburgh after my class on Van Gogh: “The class was a great success, and we would love to work on scheduling another class with you featuring Vermeer and Rembrant.”.  Feedback 25 August 2020: “You are our most popular presenter and we will book you for many more presentations.”

Feedback August 2020 from Providence Art Club, with a rich history of 140 years of lectures: “Your class was extremely well received, we will make more bookings this year.”

Feedback, August 2020 from the Arts society Sebarts .org in Sebastopol, California. “We loved your Zoom classes and will book more!”.

“The lectures continue to inform and entertain…I’m already getting rave reviews”. Sarah, a private art group now taking their 7th consecutive class with Drs Kaldenbach. September 2020.

Feedback December, 2020: “Hello Jeannette, Today’s webinar was absolutely wonderful.. content, delivery. I learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed the hour.. When the professor asked if he could go longer, I was inwardly yelling. “Yes, please!!! “This professor is wonderful..a natural teacher and obviously an expert on Van Gogh and the time. Makes me yearn for my college days. I truly hope you will keep me in mind for future presentations like this.”
