Friday History of Art: Learn & Discuss

Fridays 7pm - 9pm

  • 10 British pounds
  • Scarborough - Pay-As-You-Go

This weekly art history group with an emphasis on painting is led by Linda Polkowski - an academic with a degree in Art History and a love of teaching. Linda's position in this friendly and relaxed group is facilitator. She will endeavour to pull together the various histories that go into making art's past by looking at what scholars, both past and present, have said. She will present these ideas, as well as some of her own, to the group and invite the group to discuss them. In our first 4 sessions, we will look at what we mean when we talk about MODERNISM. What is Modernism? Why did it happen? What became of it? This is a friendly group, so it doesn't matter if you know a little or a lot - you will be made to feel welcome and your thoughts and ideas will be listened to. Session 1: Friday 24 May Overview of Modernism and Early Beginnings (1870-1904) Session 2: Friday 31 May Modernism (1905-1918) Session 3: Friday 21 June Modernism (1909-1945) Session 4: Friday 28 June Modernism (Post 1945) Fridays (please check this page for exact dates) 7pm - 9pm with Linda Polkowski This pay-as-you-go class takes place at: North Yorks Art School 2-4 South Street Scarborough YO11 2BP
