Study days are designed to explore specific subjects in depth, under the leadership of one or more expert lecturers. The topics range widely but we try to include subjects relating to forthcoming major exhibitions in London where possible, and recent study days have included Anglo-Saxon Treasures, the Arts and Craft Movement, Cubism and Caravaggio.
Study days are held at various central London locations (often either the Conway Hall, Bloomsbury Baptist Church Hall or the Keynes Library at Birkbeck) and typically last for five or six hours, including breaks for refreshments (tea and coffee provided) and lunch (not included).
Current fees for study days are £38 and are for members only.

To accompany the exhibition at the V&A, Frida Kahlo: making herself up, this study day will consider her troubled and fascinating life in Mexico, her relationship with Surrealism, her intimate diaries and her contemporary, artist Remedios Vara. It will end with her wardrobe, jewellery and artefacts, and a discussion about the way she did indeed ‘make herself up’.
