Tables are not generally provided hence, if you wish to take notes, as well as writing materials, you will need a firm pad.
Established in 2016, Pro Artium consists of three professional art historians – Dr Conny Bailey, Dr Miriam Gill, and Dr Ellie Pridgeon.
We provide talks and lectures on subjects such as paintings, objects, and their historical context.
Pro Artium are based in the Midlands, and have worked in conjunction with institutions such as the University of Leicester, Northampton Museum & Art Gallery, WEA, and Leicester Vaughan College. Pro Artium delvered the successful WEA course on the Art of Russia at Ravensthorpe Village Hall.
Following the success of the Autumn 2022 10 week course “900 Years of British Agriculture”, our next course, starting in February, will be an exciting look at the art of Scandinavia.
From The Vikings and their work in wood and metal, through the Hanseatic League and its International connections to famous individuals such as Munch, Scandinavian Art is distinctive and surprising.
This course is a chance to trace those developments and to put well-loved and familiar images into a wider context.
