What is the course about?

Pictures are windows. They open up a view that extends beyond the familiar horizons of everyday life. They bring us face to face with figures we do not know, with buildings from times gone by, and landscapes that no longer look the same or indeed never existed at all.
Pictures offer adventure. At least to those who are willing to step out of the four walls around them and, using their physical senses, their powers of intellect and their own life experiences, discover all that the work of art holds in store.
The 8 week course will cover a wide time span; include painting, sculpture and architecture on a specific part of the subject.
We will cover a different section each week, and each 8 week course will be different. A schedule of what we will cover during those 8 weeks will be given to learners on the 1st night, PLEASE NOTE ALL CLASS NOTES AND INFORMATION WILL BE SENT VIA EMAIL PLEASE ADVISE ME AT THE 1ST SESSION IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO A COMPUTER.
