What students have said:

“The course has really inspired me to want to learn more; it has opened my eyes to objects and pieces of art I may have just walked past before.”  VB219 student 2017

“Thank you so much for such an excellent V&A course. I thoroughly enjoyed it and really felt, at the end of the session, that I learnt a huge amount about so many aspects of what the V&A has to offer. Our group were really friendly, interested and that made for a great 11 weeks, but your knowledge of everything stood out as excellent which was so much acknowledged by us all as we chatted to each other as weeks went by. ”

“Thank you so much for your wonderful teaching and group leading. I have learnt so much with you that will, and has, enhanced my life. Your expertise has been a marvel.
I have enjoyed your passion/depth of knowledge/ teaching abilities and sense of fun.” VB221 – History of Art in 100 Paintings student 2016

” I can’t thank you enough for the introduction to all these mythical figures. My interest is in much more recent art – not much before 1900 – so it has been a revelation and really helped expand my horizons. ” VB462 – Classical art, myths and legends student 2018

“If you really want to get under the skin of the Renaissance in Western Europe this course is a must. Led by a highly knowledgeable and engaging tutor, the developments in both Italy and the North are set in a socio-political context; considers the lives of the artists and their patrons and also explores materials and methods. The whole package really does fulfil the aims implicit in the course title. . . ‘The Early Renaissance: In Depth'” VB464 – In depth: early Renaissance student 2019
