Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs K. Lord

If you enjoy subjects like History or Classics you're going to enjoy Art History! This is not a practical Art subject so you don't need to be concerned if you are not a creative or artistic person. Instead this subject will take you on a journey where students will study a variety artists and movements through analysing, researching and discussing Art works. We will look at periods such as Gothic Art, in the form of sculpture, architecture, stained glass and paintings. If you want to learn the stories behind some of the most famous artworks in the world this is the course for you!
