An introductory overview of European art history, from the classical to the contemporary. Back by popular demand Art for starters explores how art is shaped by cultural and historical contexts. The scope of the course is limited to key examples of painting, sculpture and architecture in the Western World, providing a starting point for a deeper exploration of the visual arts in Europe, Australia and the wider world beyond.

Liz Gibson is an experienced art educator who was senior coordinator of public programs at the Art Gallery of New South Wales for many years. Liz's lectures are engaging and thoughtful and her warm hospitable nature makes this course a perfect introduction to all aspects of art history.

This lecture includes a 30 minute intermission.

If booking tickets on behalf of other attendees, the ticket purchaser is responsible for communicating all correspondence from the Art Gallery Society to those attendees.
