Thursday 18 January 2018 | 7pm-9pm |10 sessions Tutor: Dave Macey | Canterbury campus | £105 Want to know the difference between the Renaissance and Romanticism? Have you ever wondered why the Elgin Marbles are so important? Are you curious as to why the work of the Impressionists had such a powerful impact? If so, then this short course is for you. Over a period of 10 weeks you will be taken on a journey from ancient Greece to contemporary times, highlighting the important and significant developments in Art. Initially there will be an emphasis on concepts such as the canon of art, cultural and religious influences and how the artist went from being a craftsman to a person of culture and prestige. This will then be followed by examining various art movements such as Romanticism and Modernism and how these art movements relate to the principles of Art History. The world of Art History is a fascinating and diverse place, with influences that range far and wide. It offers a scope and depth that can appeal to all levels of enquiry. With this in mind, this 10-week course is designed as an introduction to a series of courses to follow in subsequent terms, which will cover The Renaissance, Romanticism, Impressionism, Modernism, Postmodernism and world art. The courses can be enjoyed as a first step into this discipline or for people wishing to discover more about the arts and how they evolved.
