What’s on: future seminar series and schools

Seminars and schools are new additions to our programme. In seminars we aim to provide a small group of around twenty members an opportunity to explore a particular aspect of art and architecture in close detail, and to discuss the topic as the seminar unfolds under the direction of an expert in the field. The length of the series will vary depending on the subject, but will usually involve sessions of a couple of hours a week for several weeks.

Schools provide a similar opportunity for the deeper examination of a subject but with larger numbers attending and with less participation.

Fees vary according to the length of the seminar series or the school, but the current school costs £100. Seminars and schools are for members only.

Mary Magdalene – her changing image in art and literature from the fourteenth to the twentieth century

  • Mon 5 November - Mon 3 December 2018
    2-4pm for first four weeks and am for National Gallery visit on 3 December
  • Gradidge Room, The Art Workers' Guild/National Gallery
  • Lecturer: Clare Ford-Wille

The image of Mary Magdalene is one of the most familiar in Christian art but what do we really know of her? How does she usually appear in art and sculpture? Does her image change depending upon the period in which she is being depicted? To what extent does her image change within one artist’s work and why? The Autumn School will be an opportunity to explore and analyse the history, art and literature surrounding this fascinating saint. The event will consist of a group of no more than thirty participants.
