From Academy to Zoomorphism: An A-Z of Art Terms
Do you know your imprimatura from your underdrawing? your momento mori from your vedute? your cartoon from your predella? This three-day course will use the playful format of the alphabet to examine and explain the specialised vocabulary of art and art history. Covering terms relating to styles, techniques, materials and theories of western European art, the course will explore and elucidate the language used and needed to understand and discuss great works of art.
This course will be delivered online via Zoom. All participants will receive information in advance about how to access the course before it commences.
What you will learn:
• Ability to engage with, and use, the language and terms of Western European Art
