Drop-in Lessons - Art History

Updated Thursday, 10 December 2020

This 30 minute session with Dr Samuel Raybone, lecturer in Art History at Aberystwyth University, is a chance to look with fresh eyes at Impressionism, possibly the most popular art movement of all.

What comes to mind when you think of Impressionism? Perhaps it’s luminous, brightly coloured landscapes? Or daring scenes of modern Paris? Maybe its long queues outside exhibitions, or mass-produced merchandise: waterlillies on phone cases, ballerinas on tote bags?

By practicing different ‘ways of seeing’ the art of the past, you’ll learn new things about old art, and get a taste of what studying “art history” at university is all about.
