The Courtauld Short Courses 2020 – Online

Making Sense of… Courses – Online

Introduction

These intensive, five-day courses explore fundamental aspects of the visual arts.  They are open to anyone with an interest in the visual arts and, as in all our programmes, aim to combine The Courtauld’s scholarly approach with an accessible delivery.  Organised thematically,  these courses go considerably beyond introductory surveys, and are intended to provide a solid basis for further studies in areas of Western art from the Renaissance to the twentieth century, and of the arts of the Islamic world.
