About the Course

Studying in front of the actual works of art at Tate Britain, discover the history of British art from the Tudor period to the present day. From the hidden meanings in Elizabethan portraits, to the discovery of the English landscape, and on towards the effect of the Industrial Revolution on art, we will learn about the evolution of British art and its place in world culture. Fun and accessible, the course is suitable for anyone interested in art, culture or history, and no previous experience of art history or art appreciation is required.

By the end of the course you will be able to
