Love art? Then let’s talk about it! This informal course will encourage you to think about how to look at and learn from works of Art when making visits to museums and galleries.
Using examples of historical, modern and contemporary art, you will take a closer look at selected pieces helping to give you a better understanding of what you like and why. We will be looking at themes of self-portraits, the body (life painting), still life, landscape, art of conflict and the question of originality in art.
The course will take place online via Zoom, with a 40 minute lecture and 20 minute discussion afterwards.
