"Why shouldn't art be pretty? There are enough unpleasant things in the world." Renoir is best known for his paintings of bustling Parisian modernity and leisure in the late 19th century.  Celebrated as a colourist with a keen eye for capturing the movement of light and shadow, Renoir started to explore Renaissance painting in the middle of his career, which led him to integrate more line and composition into his mature works and create some of his era's most timeless canvases.

 

The cost for the day is £25.00, which includes refreshments on arrival and at break.

 

Veronese - The Deposition of Christ

Monday 17 June

10:00 - 13:00

 

We will be studying the unique Venetian style of painting characterised by deep, rich colours, an emphasis on patterns and surfaces and a strong interest in the effects of light.  This style of art in Venice from the late 15th - 16th Century, demonstrated a departure from the more sculptural and linear technique of the Florentine painters and was led by artists such as Giovanni Bellinini, Giorgione, Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese.  We will be looking at the works of these artists, describing their techniques, subject matter and historical context.

 

The cost for the day is £30.00, which includes refreshments on arrival and at 11:00 break.
