Art Appreciation
A Beginners’ Course

Join us on this 10 week course to explore historic and contemporary art – using collections and temporary exhibitions across five regional galleries.


Start by looking at the story of art from the Renaissance to the 20th century at the Barber Institute of Fine Arts. Then progress through artistic movements, styles and periods from The New Art Gallery Walsall, Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, Wolverhampton Art Gallery and Ikon Gallery. Through supported looking, discussion and analysis, learn to enjoy and explore art wherever you encounter it!
