Delve into the history of French, Dutch, British and Belgian art with this colourful experience, hosted by art historian Euan MacDonald. You’ll find out more about the history of your destination city as you learn about its art. This is no art lecture – it’s a break-neck cultural tour of the city: fun, fast, and fascinating. Use your newfound knowledge to take a new look at key artworks (and artists) from your destination cities including the Tate Modern, the Pompidou and the Rijksmuseum.
- “I Know What I Like” - the delegates are presented with three very different pieces of art from the destination and asked to choose their favourite. The origins of the pieces are explained to them and they are asked if their opinions have changed.
- Who is an Artist? – the concept is put forward that we don’t draw anymore, and we should.
- What is Art? – brief talk about what we consider as art, based on some of the more radical pieces from galleries at the destination
- 3 to See – Three more art pieces from the destination are presented and explained.
