Art history short courses, lectures and tours 2019

Summer School 2019

The Summer School welcomes everyone over the age of 18.  We regret that child protection legislation prevents us from including participants under the age of 18.  No previous art historical training is necessary.

Each course is entirely free-standing, but we have balanced the programme in such a way that you may pursue a particular period or subject over two or more weeks.

In 2019 the dates are:

8 – 12 July

15 – 19 July

22 – 26 July

29 July – 2 August

 

PROGRAMME AND COURSES

The programme offers 32 courses, each of which runs for a week from Monday to Friday.  Classes are held in The Courtauld Institute of Art seminar and teaching rooms at Vernon Square, 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 classical to contemporary art, combined with the close study of individual objects.  They involve lectures, visits to galleries, museums and other buildings, sometimes 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.

For further details on the organisation of Summer School – including such aspects of access, language requirements, booking, lecturers, class sizes and more – please see ‘General Information’.

The Spring and Autumn Courses, Summer School, and Study Tours have been programmed by Dr Anne Puetz.  If you require further information on the content and scope of these programmes, please contact Anne by email (anne.puetz@courtauld.ac.uk).

Questions about the administration of the short courses should be directed to Jackie Sullivan by email (short.courses@courtauld.ac.uk) or phone: +44(0)203 9477 650
