Course details


This course of Art History: Modernism is aimed at anyone who would like to learn how more about how to analyse works of art, with a specific focus on Modernist movements, and the diversity of the work being produced between approximately 1910 –1980. We will study a wide range of artists and their techniques including Pop artist Andy Warhol, the illusionistic work of the Op artists such as Bridget Riley, kinetic art by Alexander Calder, existentialist work by Francis Bacon, and sculpture by Dame Barbara Hepworth.

Learning Outcomes:

You will learn through a series of power point presentations, worksheets, quizzes and via discussions. By the end, you will have made new friends and have the ability to analyse and understand more about artist’s work from the 20th Century.

Extra costs on the course for example text book, materials or equipment:

None, unless you wish to purchase books, or visit art Galleries. There will be invitations to watch Arts on Screen with the Tutor during the year as well.

For the first session you will need to bring:

A pen and notepad.
