In this course, you will gain an appreciation of 19th & 20th century British art and learn about a range of artists from that time period. You will learn about the artists themselves and the life experiences that made them the celebrated artists they have become. As well as being able to recognise the styles and techniques attributed to specific artists, you will learn how to decipher artwork and recognise different visual elements such as line, shape, tone and much more, giving you the confidence to view art in a more informed way.
At the end of the class you should be able to:
Recognise a range of 19th & 20th century British artists and the art movements they belong to as well as an increased awareness of the vocabulary that can be used to describe key elements of a particular artist’s works. You will be able to view art with a new appreciation, identifying particular styles and techniques that can be used to develop your own artistic work
What happens in the class (format/activities)
There will be lots of different activities during the classes including plenty of opportunity to critically examine the message that a particular artist is trying to express through their chosen medium. As well as group discussions and analysis, you will complete tasks that will stretch and challenge your pre-conceptions of what defines art as good or popular and explore specific vocabulary to help you express what you see and feel.
No prior knowledge of art is required and you should just want to learn more about this wonderful subject.
