Brochure Text

The course is designed to introduce the idea of looking at art in a constructive way, as distinct from the purely personal. It will appeal to a wide and diverse audience and introduce the subject of art and cultural history, both past and present, including the aesthetic, social, political and economic, through discussion. The tutor will teach appreciation and criticism, centred around observation, identification and comparison, using actual art objects, available exhibitions, art, craft and architecture contained in specific venues, including the student'r own home. It is also designed to be a level O feeder course for both art practice and art history courses at Level 1
