ART HISTORY AND PRACTICAL WORKSHOP
Saturday 18 November 2017, 10.45-16.00

Discover how artists have captured movement across the centuries, through an in-depth curator-led tour of The Courtauld Collection.

Learn how French artist Edgar Degas (1834-1917) captured his fascination with dancers in movement in a variety of media. Explore how photography, Japanese prints, and a deep interest in art history, shaped Degas’s innovative and experimental approach.

Collaborate with a contemporary artist and experiment with methods of interpreting rapid movement into mark-making. The workshop includes a unique opportunity to draw from a live dancer in motion.
