What will the course cover?

“We should be asking, what can we learn from art rather than just about it” Dr Angela Voss Art continues to fascinate and draw crowds, fetch staggering sums at auction and inspire travel from all over the world to marvel at it. But what do you see when you look at art and how does it make you feel? Art presents us with doorways and windows into the entire world, not only in terms of history, philosophy, psychology and engineering but also in terms of our perceptions and responses to it. This course will track an overview of art from around the world and from different time periods, its history and story and consider its ability to be able to communicate through images, messages and meaning that words cannot always express - and what it means for you
