Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

Art Influencers - A Guided Tour of Art History

Join us on a guided tour around the history of art.

This course is designed as an introduction to art history and aimed at creatives aged 16 - 30. You will learn about key art periods before going on to explore them in more depth through your weekly art challenge. This is ideal for anyone looking to start or diversify their portfolio or to strengthen their creative confidence.

We are seeking artists who identify as disabled - including neurodiverse artists. The course has been designed to suit a range of abilities.

Whether you’re a self-taught, early stage artist, or a more experienced artist who is yet to study the history of art, this might be a great starting point.

If you’d like to know more or if you think this is something you or a loved one might be interested in, we want to hear from you!

This course is free - but you will need to be able to answer ‘YES’ to these 4 questions:

  1. I can attend a 1.5 hour class each week for 12 weeks
  2. I am happy to spend 6+ hours each week making art
  3. I can access art supplies such as paper and pencils
  4. My internet connection is reliable enough to attend online classes via Zoom
