Course Description: The Wallace Collection’s extraordinary range of painting and sculpture offers inspiring and thought-provoking images which are as relevant today as when the works were first created. Discover how we can make meaningful connections with them by looking slowly.

This three-session course is designed to help you develop visual analysis skills by looking at paintings in detail. Concentrating on a small number of still life works, you’ll develop core skills in active looking that can be applied beyond the course, as well as increasing your familiarity with the artworks selected.

While the items depicted are mostly inactive, we’ll discover that the paintings are nevertheless alive with their intriguing compositions, textures, use of colour and potential meanings.
