this course will explore topics spanning art history to the art of tomorrow. While some sessions will be pre-planned, others may be a response to topical news items, issues and events that arise in the art world during the course, with scope for student suggestions. Generally - but not exclusively - the focus in each session will be on two artists and a particular work by each of them, Some artists we will look at will be famous, others more obscure, but relevant background material will be provided. Students will be encouraged to debate, draw on their own past experiences and existing knowledge to make connections and form opinions.
