Art History Courses
Learn about art, sculpture and architecture from the Ancient Greeks to the Impressionists with Adam Rattray, head of art history at Wellington College. Adam is passionate about the subject and his enthusiasm is infectious. From Michelangelo to Van Gogh, Caravaggio to Cezanne: explore the history of some of the most extraordinary works of art ever created.
'Ways of Seeing' will run for four consecutive Tuesday evenings - the 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd November 2016, from 7.30-9pm, at a cost of £120 per course.
Find out more about artists from Titian to Monet, learn about styles and movements in art from Classicism to Impressionism, study buildings from the 'Acropolis' to the 'Eiffel Tower' and look at sculptures from Michelangelo's 'David' to Rodin's 'The Kiss'.
Adam has taught students of every age and ability - absolutely no prior knowledge is required. This course is a general introduction to art aimed at those keen to learn more about the subject, rather than those who are experts already. You do not need to be able to draw or paint. There is no exam at the end , and no formal lectures - instead you will look at slides of works of art which Adam will then explain.
The evenings are informal in style and will begin with a glass of wine followed by approximately 1 hour of talk and discussion. Places are limited, and those who are interested should contact the gallery.
Small group visits to the London galleries, museums and churches can be arranged. If you are interested in a tailored tour with Adam, please contact the gallery.
