Evening Course: Showcasing Art History
The course ‘Showcasing Art History’, which takes place on Tuesday evenings and began in October 2006, has proved very popular. The Autumn and Spring lectures focused on features of European art history, from antiquity to the present. The Summer Lectures which began in late April cover various aspects of Global Art.

Summer School
The Summer School 2007 will run for four weeks. There are twenty-six courses on offer this year, with a broad range of themes, including Russian and Buddhist art as well as photography, contemporary art and a course on methods and materials in early Italian painting which offers the opportunity to create a replica panel painting in egg tempera.
