Course Summary

Cambridge is one of the world’s greatest cultural centres and is home to some of England’s most stunning and influential buildings, dating as far back as Medieval times, and right up to the Modern era. This workshop series will introduce students to some of the most impressive and important Art and Architecture the city has to offer, and to the study of Art and Architecture in general. The class will go on to receive an introduction to the evolution of Art and Architecture in Europe up to the present day, and apply their learning to studying examples of work from different periods that can be found in Cambridge.

The workshops will consist of a combination of classroom-based learning, discussion of artistic and architectural periods and styles, and interactive walking tours.

What will you get out of the Cambridge's Art and Architecture Summer Course?

By the end of this series of workshops, you will have received an overview of Cambridge’s extraordinarily rich artistic and architectural heritage and history. You will be equipped with the skills and language required to understand, describe, analyse and interpret artistic and architectural works that span a wide range of styles. It is hoped that once you have completed the course, you will take a more open-minded and creative approach to Art and Architecture, as you will have a better understanding of what artists and architects were seeking to communicate and achieve through their work, and why. This is a key difference between simply admiring a work and appreciating it fully, and will serve you well in your further studies or a career in the rich and fascinating domains of Art and Architecture.
