How can looking at art be a creative experience? What dialogues might we develop when visiting an exhibition or when looking at an artwork before deciding to read a picture label? By looking at a small selection of works, but a broad range of subjects, painting styles and techniques, this course offers a ‘toolkit’ for active looking. We will discuss works from the 18th century to the present focusing mainly on paintings, but including a small selection of 3-dimensional works.
