Art History Courses 

Tutor: Jennie Spiers

3 Hour courses – £22 per course.

Course 1 : Frida Kahlo

A highly individualistic artist, Kahlo is noted for her intensely personal self-portraits, many reflecting her physical ordeals and her tumultuous marriage to Diego Rivera.  Like many artists working in post-revolutionary Mexico, Kahlo was influenced by Mexican folk art, which is reflected in both her dress and her paintings which combine sometimes fantastical subjects with bold colours.

Course 2 : The Beginnings of Modern Art

Although modern art began, in retrospect, around 1850 with the arrival of Realism, approaches and styles of art were defined and redefined throughout the twentieth century. Practitioners of each new style were determined to develop a visual language that was both original and representative of the times.
