THE COURSE (UNDERSTANDING AND INTERPRETING THE VISUAL ARTS)

Welcome to The Course, London
Part-Time Art History Courses London

As someone who is interested in art history and the visual arts, you'll find our range of lectures and courses exciting, stimulating and enriching.

Perhaps you already have a history of art degree. Or you have previously taken courses elsewhere. Maybe you have never studied the visual arts before but you're passionate about a particular period, style or artist.

Whatever your background, you'll find our courses will challenge you to see the arts in new ways. Established in 1994, The Course programmes take a fresh and innovative approach and encourage lively debate and discussion.

They also cross over into literature, music and opera. Our groups are small, informal and friendly and of course you'll have the opportunity to socialise and exchange ideas with like-minded people who share your interest and enthusiasm for the visual arts.

BESPOKE VISITS
We arrange bespoke visits for academic bodies, specialist clubs and societies. If you prefer individual tuition, we can also arrange this at your convenience anywhere, anytime.
