Summer School General Information 2018

The Courtauld Institute of Art is the foremost centre in Britain for the study of art history and conservation and enjoys an international reputation.  The Courtauld is based in the central London location of Somerset House, one of the capital’s grandest and most famous neo-classical buildings, which was designed by Sir William Chambers in the late eighteenth century.  The Courtauld’s rooms are rich in historical associations, being originally designed for, and inhabited by, the Royal Academy and other learned societies.

Location

The world-famous Courtauld Gallery collections range from the thirteenth century to the present day.  Best known for its outstanding collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art, the Gallery also includes medieval ivories, 14th-century gold ground paintings, Italian Renaissance paintings and wedding chests, beautiful examples of the work of Lucas Cranach and Pieter Bruegel, and a significant collection of paintings and drawings by Pieter Paul Rubens, as well as sketches and paintings by Tiepolo, Goya and Gainsborough.  Moving into the 20th century, the Gallery has an important collection of Fauve and German Expressionist paintings on long-term loan, and owns works by Walter Sickert, Ben Nicholson, Graham Sutherland, Anthony Caro and Richard Long.

To support and improve our ability to teach, research, and to engage with a much wider public, The Courtauld is undertaking Courtauld Connects, a major redevelopment and transformation of our home at Somerset House, from the autumn of 2018.  This project will necessitate the temporary closure of the Gallery, and, during Phase Two, the relocation of the Institute; there will be some disruption to ‘business as usual’, but likewise there will be an exciting opportunity to renew our teaching, to introduce new strands, formats and personalities.  Once completed, Courtauld Connects will transform our experience of teaching, learning and working at Somerset House through state-of-the-art teaching spaces, improved access to, and facilities within, our Gallery and Library and the digitisation of our varied collections.

For further information on Courtauld Connects please visit courtauld.ac.uk/connects or email connects@courtauld.ac.uk

Class size, teaching methods and learning resources

The programme offers 24 courses, each of which runs for a week from Monday to Friday.  The courses have limited numbers, with groups kept to a maximum of 16 and, in some cases, fewer students.

Classes are held in The Courtauld Institute of Art seminar and teaching rooms, in the lecture theatre and in front of works of art in museum and gallery collections and at sites in London and beyond.

The courses focus intensively on a range of topics that examine broad themes from medieval to contemporary art, combined with the close study of individual objects. They involve lectures, visits to galleries, museums and buildings, often with privileged access to collections. No written work is set although there is suggested pre-course reading. The classes offer plenty of opportunity for discussion and questions and aim to be both scholarly and enjoyable.

Short courses students have their own dedicated space on our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). The VLE will contain a range of learning resources, such as reading lists, glossaries and historical summaries, selected texts for advance or future reading, and lists of useful websites.  The quantity and nature of this material will vary from tutor to tutor and we cannot foresee what will be available for each course.  Some tutors may upload powerpoints of their talks, but others may not wish to, or may not be able to provide these owing to copyright issues with some images and/or the unpublished nature of ongoing research.  For these reasons we ask students not to use recording devices.

Gallery and library access, and other special benefits

Students are encouraged to make use of The Courtauld Gallery and of The Courtauld’s other unique facilities.

From 9-13 April, all Summer School students (including those taught in July) will have access to the Book Library.  The Library staff have kindly offered to give two brief induction sessions on Monday 9 April, and to open from the earlier time of 9.30 am during Summer School, so that participants have a chance to consult the library before the start of classes at 10.00 am, and after classes until 17.30 pm.  All Summer School students are further welcome to use the library for reference after the end of the spring term from 26 March to 17 April, excluding the period 29 March – 3 April, when the Institute is closed over Easter.  It is expected that Summer School students in July will also have the usual access to the library during their courses; however, at the time of publication the packing and removal schedule for the library, in preparation of works relating to Courtauld Connects, has not yet been confirmed; a definitive answer should be available early in 2018.  Please note that in 2018 there will be no library access during the rest of July, August and September.

While on a course students have full access to The Courtauld Gallery during opening hours. Monday afternoons are particularly designed to give you an opportunity to get to know our Gallery in depth: Courtauld postgraduate students will offer a choice of 45-minute gallery talks on selected aspects of the collections, after which Summer School participants are invited to explore the Gallery further until it closes at 18.00.

At the end of each week of courses there is a plenary lecture given by an eminent guest speaker in The Kenneth Clark Lecture Theatre at The Courtauld.  Following the lecture there is a farewell party, which in 2018 exceptionally takes place in the Courtauld Gallery on each of the Fridays, 13 April, 6 and 13 July.  Summer School students are invited to attend all the plenary lectures and parties and may also bring a guest to both events at no extra charge.

Certificates

Any student who attends either four Summer School courses in one year or six courses over three years is eligible for a Short Courses Certificate, signed by the Director.  Certificates are made out in September after Summer School and will be posted to your home address.  If you would like us to mark your achievement in this way, please send a note – by
e-mail or in person – to Jackie Sullivan at short.courses@courtauld.ac.uk by 1 September, with details of the courses you have attended.

Advice for students with reduced mobility

The Courtauld Institute of Art boasts a unique and atmospheric location in the Grade 1 listed, historical building of Somerset House.  However, because of its setting, The Courtauld currently does not have full disabled access to all of its study areas.  Most of the teaching rooms are accessible to those with mobility issues but others, such as the Conservation Studios where part of the ‘Introduction to Art History’ course and course 1 of Summer School will be taught, unfortunately are not.  There are a number of steep staircases to be negotiated. While all courses go on visits outside The Courtauld, Summer School courses 3, 4 and 18 include more extended walks.  There are a couple of steps also to The Courtauld Gallery Print Room, where aspects of the ‘Introduction to Art History’, and of Summer School courses 6, 10, 12, 13, 14, 19 and 22 are likely to be taught.  Other lecturers may also decide to visit the Courtauld’s print room, or include extended walks into their course outlines nearer the time and we will alert all prospective students as soon as we have this information.

Please note that we may not be able to accommodate any access requirements unless you communicate these clearly at the time of booking.  Therefore, please inform us as soon as possible and at least a month in advance of the course if you require a fully accessible teaching space.  And where possible, apart from the ‘Introduction to Art History’, which cannot be relocated, and Summer School courses 6, 10, 12, 13, 14, 19 and 22, which make use of The Courtauld Gallery Print Room, we will strive to arrange it. 

Please also bear in mind that most Spring Courses and all Summer School courses include visits to museums, galleries and other sites within London, its surroundings or nearby cities and therefore a certain degree of physical activity.  Likewise, all Study Tours require a fair amount of walking and getting around towns and sites, in some circumstances on uneven or otherwise difficult terrain. 

If you have any doubts whether a particular course or tour is suitable for you, please contact us for further information.

HOW TO BOOK YOUR PLACE/PAYMENT OF FEES

If you need to cancel your place, we will refund the full fee (minus a £40 cancellation charge) provided that you cancel at least 8 weeks before the course/tour commences. If you have to cancel after that date but more than 4 weeks before the start of the course/tour, we will refund 50% of the course fee.  For cancellations less than 4 weeks prior to the start of the course/tour, no refund will be payable.
