Art Appreciation 1
The group decides on a topic and has covered such periods as The Golden Age of Dutch Painting, English Artists of the 20th Century, Narrative Paintings and Landscapes. As we've been meeting for the last 10 or 12 years we are beginning to run out of ideas, so in this current session we are each introducing a subject of our own choosing, such as Poster Art, Cezanne, Radio Times Art work. We are particularly looking forward to one of our members talking about What is Art? Everyone takes part in leading the session, and discussion is usually pretty lively. We also often watch a video that relates to the subject we have been discussing. None of us has any professional expertise, although there are some painters amongst us. We do however, learn a great deal from the research that each of us does in preparing to lead a session. We are perforce a small group of 10 which means that we have a waiting list.
