Autumn School

Online and on campus

Our Spring and Autumn Schools offer three- to five-day intensive introductory and intermediate art history short courses.

An Introduction to Art History and our Making Sense of courses familiarise students with fundamental aspects of the visual arts and of art history and its methodologies.  Organised thematically, they go considerably beyond introductory surveys, and are intended to provide a solid basis for further studies of areas of Western art from classical antiquity to the twentieth century, and of the arts of the Islamic world.

Variations on a Theme is a programme designed for participants who like to explore the connections between different cultural expressions within on historical period. Media, Materials and Methods foregrounds aspects of the practice of art-making while also situating them in the historical contexts of patronage and reception, and the Evening Study programme invites students to re-examine the art of the past through new art-historical narratives, including post-colonial perspectives.
