Activity description

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS: It is the responsibility of participants to ensure they have downloaded and checked they have access to the Microsoft Teams Application. This course is aimed at new attendees – however some existing knowledge of art history may come in useful.    OVERVIEW / INTRODUCTION TO THE COURSE: This course will provide an overview of the development of Modern art through selected movements and artists, from Impressionism to Surrealism. We will conduct an in-depth visual analysis of artworks and relate them to their historical context and influence on subsequent styles.   HOW THE COURSE WILL BE TAUGHT: Through slide shows we will look at images of artworks and a selection of key quotes from artists and critics which relate to them. As a group we will discuss key questions relating to formal analysis, technique, reception, and influence. We will consider the origins of the stylistic labels we apply to movements in art history. Students will be encouraged to share their own ideas and opinions throughout.   WHAT STUDENTS CAN EXPECT TO LEARN: Students will learn to identify key styles and artists’ work from the period, and understand the context behind them, including their original reception versus how we view them today. They will be equipped with the tools of visual analysis and specialist terminology to fully appreciate artworks in the future. RESOURCES REQUIRED BY STUDENTS / ADDITIONAL COSTS: None.
