Activity description

NB: The meeting point for the first session of this course is Southside Community Centre. This is an informal group which comes together to visit a wide range of different exhibitions and helps people enjoy and appreciate art. ENTRY REQUIREMENTS: None. WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT TO LEARN: By the end of the course students will: - know where to find a variety of art exhibitions in Edinburgh; - be introduced to a wide variety of art; - have an understanding of the variety of private and public collections; and - have learned to appreciate and enjoy art. GENERAL APPROACH TO THE COURSE: We will meet each time in a nearby café or the gallery café and over coffee/tea the tutor will introduce the exhibition we are going to see that week. Once in the gallery, the tutor or a curator from the gallery will give a talk about the highlights of that particular exhibition and then people will be free to look at exhibits in their own time. The tutor will circulate the group in conversation and further information. MATERIALS REQUIRED BY STUDENT; APPROXIMATE & ADDITIONAL COSTS: Participants will be expected to pay for any exhibition that has a fee, though the majority of exhibitions will be free. Where there is a guided tour by a gallery representative the fee is £5.
