Art history: The Early Renaissance

Shire Hall, Monmouth

Wednesdays 2pm-4pm. 10 weeks from 25 September 2013
Explore the cultural explosion that took place in fifteenth century Western art, as the mysteries of the medieval gave way to renaissance realism. In this friendly and popular class, we will examine the first hints of change in fourteenth century and how Florence blossomed to become a centre for the artistic change which spread across Europe.  A class for those who do not wish to progress to further study in higher education, and suitable for beginners and those with wider knowledge. 

Fee: £80 (no concessions). Contact the Shire Hall to book a place, or email Eleanor from this site. 

Art and the Landscape

Shire Hall, Monmouth

Wednesdays 6.30pm-8.30pm. 12 weeks from 18 September 2013
Using local and regional images such as the Wye Valley, industrial South Wales and the wilds of Snowdonia to supplement paintings from the wider world of European culture, we look at how perceptions of the landscape changed in art – from a setting for medieval saints to an expression of the inner life. Through the course, you will gain an overview of artistic style and technique at key points in the development of landscape art and develop a portfolio of favourite images and information through your research.
A University of South Wales community course.  For fee information or to book a place, call: 01495 333 789 or  visit: www.southwales.ac.uk/ccl
