Overview

For centuries artists have endeavoured to capture light in their works – celestial light, candlelight, natural light or sunlight have all been addressed. From the Renaissance to today, we shall explore how and why artists such as Caravaggio, Vermeer, Turner, Constable and the Impressionists achieved the effects of light.

Please note: this face to face class currently has a capacity of 25 students. We have reviewed this number in line with the lifting of Government restrictions.
