You will learn about 500 years of British art, from 1545 to today, as we enjoy a virtual walk through the 13 Rooms, stopping for long looks at chosen artworks and deep discussion on a range of art historical themes and topics.
Although the Tate Britain is currently closed, this online course will offer you a comprehensive and insightful view into British art history. This course is interactive, and students enjoy class discussion, debate and questions, to enrich experience of the course. The course will equip you with a deeper knowledge and meaningful understanding of some major and lesser-known artworks on display. And will act as a solid preamble, to the next time you visit — enabling you to fully enjoy the artworks and share your knowledge with others.
Refunds are not available on this booking. Start dates may be amended on request.
The two hours, offered online through ‘Zoom’ or ‘Teams’ will include slide presentations where your tutor will lead you in in a discussion on the possible meanings, purposes and histories of the works of art looked at.
Observations, debate and further questions will be encouraged and materials will be shared by email. The class may divide up into groups to consider different aspects of the images. We will do compare and contrast exercises. We will also read and analyse texts to discuss through the class audio format. Most of the pictures chosen can be found in Tate Britain in London so that you will be able to examine them in person once lockdown restrictions have been lifted.
