The first of these five-week courses, A History of Buildings, explores some of the finest Architecture of the last thousand years in both Europe and North America. Covering all types of building from great cathedrals and palaces to seats of government, war memorials, and domestic homes, we will discover, through the lives of these buildings, their makers, and inhabitants, a history of the world we have built around us. No previous knowledge of architecture is required!

Following this, The Making of Modern Art will cover art in Europe and the USA from the 1850s onwards as the world changed beyond all recognition due to extraordinary inventions as well as cataclysmic conflict and tragedy. How art and artists responded to the new modern world, from Impressionism to Surrealism and Pop Art, will be explored with popular favourites such as Vincent van Gogh and Andy Warhol as well as lesser known gems from Russia all the way to New York and beyond.

Led by experienced Art Historian Morgan Haigh MA of The Courtauld Institute of Art, London. For several years he was a tour guide at Cardiff Castle, and has guided tours at the National Gallery, Tate Gallery, National Gallery of Art Washington DC, and V&A. He recently appeared on the BBC’s ‘University Challenge’. To register or for more information email: [email protected]
