Course Participant

When Victorian children said to their parents, “I want to be an artist,” what happened next? This richly illustrated course, full of information and anecdotes, will show how families reacted. The sessions will also explore art education and art exhibitions, including the Royal Family, and discuss artists’ homes and studios from the proverbial garrets to the painters’ palaces of Merlbury Road in Kensington.
