How many times have you seen Hokusai’s The Great Wave, Van Gogh’s Sunflowers or Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa or emblazoned on tea towels, chocolate boxes and every commercial product you can think of? Our eyes become complacent when seeing the same thing. What is a masterpiece anyway? Discover that when you look with fresh eyes, with your own responses and insights as opposed to being told what to think about “masterpieces” you can decide whether it is all “hype” or whether there really is something secret and mysterious after all hidden within the art.
Anyone with an interest in art, perceptions and looking beneath the surface of things beyond what you are told to think or be.
None, just an open and intriguing mind.
Participants should be able to know one work of art they can identify that sparks their curiosity.
This is a five-week course which will unlock secrets of masterpieces from across the world.
Optional to keep a journal of thoughts and reflections and finding a work of art that is meaningful to you.
Each week there will be a recap on the previous week and any issues or questions will be shared either with the group or with tutor.
You may want to do longer courses in art history, mythology, writing or history.
There are no other costs.
Support is available from the tutor via email.
