Do you have a passion for art history and love learning about different art movements and the stories about artists?

Do you want greater knowledge about discussing art terms and defining art practices?

Come along to Manyung Gallery’s Art Conversation course with Artist and Senior Educator Belinda Wilson for a five-week course offering the fundamentals of understanding and appreciating different art practices.

“Gaining a better understanding of art history will lead you to a wider appreciation for art practices in today’s market”. -Belinda Wilson

This 5-week introductory course provides an in-depth look at Western art history, concentrating on significant movements and artists that have influenced contemporary art practices. Each week you will be introduced to broad artistic styles, specific art movements, pivotal artworks and artists that have shaped the world.

The lecturer will examine how each artwork has been created including looking at the artist’s techniques, medium, style, approach, and themes. Relevant sculptures, painting, printmaking, photography, public art, and drawings will connect you with historical settings that will be discussed in detail.

Enjoy light refreshments with each class, generously sponsored by Foxey's Hangout.
