Creative Learning |
29th October 2018

Tutor Cherrie Trelogan | Fee £63 | 5 weeks

Using skills and knowledge gained in the introductory course, you will be able to develop your confidence and work with other members of the group, to ‘unpack’ and discuss a range of famous and less familiar artworks. This course will mainly use reproductions but there will be occasional opportunities to respond to original works of art.

What will the course or workshop cover and how will it be taught?
The course will include a brief recap of the main skills gained during the introductory course. Sessions will then focus on a range of subjects and participants will study and discuss works of art, individually, in pairs and as a group. Learners will consider ways that art has been affected by and embraced changing technology and culture over time.

Projected images and reproductions will be used but original works of art will be used whenever possible.

By the end of the course, you will have gained skills to help you understand and appreciate a range of well-known and less familiar works of art.

What do I need to bring with me?
Please bring a pen, notebook and your glasses, if you need them.

Are there any additional costs?
If all participants wish, a visit may be made to a local exhibition (learners will need to arrange own transport and cover any admission charge).
