Foundation in History of Art

This module provides an introduction to the study of the history of art. It begins with ways of looking closely at paintings and other art objects, and developing the tools to discuss what you see. It then moves on to different ways of thinking about art, for example, exploring how important it might be to know more about the artist, or who something was made for. You will develop the skills and knowledge to think, talk and write about art.

It can be taken as a stand-alone course or it may be available as part of a Certificate of Higher Education.
