Activity description

Course open to all interested participants. Prior experience of visiting Art Galleries can be desirable but not a top requirement. An enthusiasm for the Visual Arts and a desire to expand, enhance, and improve their knowledge about the Visual Arts is all that is required. NUMBER OF WEEKS/ HOURS: 5 weeks x YouTube videos of up to approximately one hour per week will be sent to you to watch at your convenience each Wednesday before the end of the day from: - week 1: from Wednesday 8th July; - week 2: from Wednesday 15th July; - week 3: from Wednesday 22nd July; - week 4: from Wednesday 29th July; and - week 5: from Wednesday 5th August. DAY AND TIME FOR THE INTERACTIVE CLASS DISCUSSION : In addition you will be offered to take part in an interactive session on: Fridays: 10th/17th/24th/31st July/7th August at 12 noon EXCEPT for the 31st July - this session will be 2.00pm. OVERVIEW/INTRODUCTION TO COURSE: Over the 5 weeks of the course, there will be three weeks where the work of the American Artist Edward Hopper will be discussed. This will occupy weeks 1/2/3. The fourth week will be a discussion of the tutor’s own work and practice. The final week will be on the work of the Artist Georgia O’Keeffe. HOW THE COURSE WILL BE TAUGHT: A weekly course of approximately one hour will be available, with an interactive discussion on the Friday of each week. WHAT STUDENTS CAN EXPECT TO LEARN: How to view, learn, analyse, deconstruct and discuss the work of any given artist or movement and be able to discuss with confidence and some enhanced knowledge any art work going forward. ARE ANY RESOURCES REQUIRED? : It would be desirable for the participants to have access to two pieces of technology, ie phone/tablet, tablet/laptop, phone/desktop or any permutation that the participant might choose or have available. Participants will obviously be viewing the modules on a specific piece of hardware but the tutor will suggest from time to time that they look up a given piece of work online so ideally access to two pieces of hardware is desirable. However, if any participant does not have access to two pieces of technology it does not preclude them from doing the course. ARE THERE ANY HEALTH AND SAFETY GUIDELINES TO FOLLOW? No. WHAT COULD STUDENTS DO NEXT? : Look out for the next set of Adult Education Programme Art History online or classroom courses.
