Journey Through Style

Friday mornings 9.30am - 12.30pm

Our next exhibition Somewhat Abstract contains nearly 100 works from the Arts Council Collection spanning the last 60 years of art history. Join us on a journey through style as we explore the exhibition and its theme of abstraction with Associate Artist, and WEA tutor, Chris Lewis-Jones. Each session will involve the opportunity to discuss and share ideas as well as creating our own practical responses to the works and themes in the exhibition. No previous knowledge or experience required.

Cost: £73.50 (Free to those on low incomes or in receipt of benefits. Please note that there are also bursaries available for this particular course). For more information or to book a place please contact Helen Thackray on 0115 948 9783 or helenthackray@nottinghamcontemporary.org

 

Feedback from previous students:

'The tutor, the course content, the dialogue between tutor and learners, the exercises and the facilities are the best I’ve experienced on any course- by a long way'

'Chris Lewis-Jones [tutor] has an addictive and fluid method of teaching… that is conducive to a variety of learning styles.'

'My own confidence has increased exponentially. I used some of the ideas Chris provided at a recent job interview and genuinely believe it helped me get the job'
