The Natural History of Grasslands  Tutor:  Tricia Moxey

Cezanne, his Art and Life: Tutor: Caroline Levisse  Dates: Mondays 2pm to 4pm - Starting April 23/04, 30/04, 14/05, 21/05, 04/06 - 5 week course for £50.

Venue: Loughton Bowls Club, Eleven Acre Rise, Loughton, IG10 1AN

We will explore Cezanne's art from the first years in Paris in the 1860's to his late years in Aix-en-Provence. We will look at the subjects he came back to almost obsessively (bathers, still-lifes with apples, card players and the Mont Sainte-Victoire). We will also study his painting technique and creative process. Although enigmatic, his personality and personal life will be discussed. Finally we will address his status in art history. Many younger artists considered Cezanne as "the father of modern art", implying that his example was essential for the early developments of 20th century art.

Spring 2018

  Art Appreciation: Modern British Design, 1850-1950     Tutor:  Rosanna Eckersley

At the height of 19c imperial power British designers rebelled against mainstream commodification and beautiful designs by Pugin, Henry Cole, Wm. Morris and the Arts & Crafts Movement clearly linked form with function.   In the 20s “flapper” dress combined practicality with high fashion, while in the cash-strapped 1930s Clarice Cliff’s ceramics made art deco style affordable for the modern consumer.  Later, Swedish interior designs complemented new homes and the increasingly informal living of post WWII Britain.   This course discusses innovative designers, sets the history of design in its historical context, looks closely at fascinating topics and introduces some architecture.      Course No. C2224429
