About the Event

NB The individual preparations have now started. However, you can still attend individual sessions as an active audience. This means you will not have to prepare a presentation yourself, but can be part of the group discussing the work. Please contact Sally to find out which work will be discussed which week:

Every week one person (or pair) will choose a work of art they are interested in and like or perhaps not like. They will  research the work, its history, location and artist and prepare a 15 min presentation with a few slides. Mariska will support the presenter(s) with some additional content and context, after which the whole group can discuss, ask questions and share their own knowledge/ ideas about the work. 

Through this process we hope to develop skills and confidence in evaluating art.

When: Wednesday afternoons 4-5pm UK time* 

Format: Online Zoom meeting

* 16.00 London = 17.00 Amsterdam = 11.00 New York = 00.00 Hong Kong
