John Murphy-Woolford will lead you through different art history movements, ideas and visual approaches, revealing why art is enriching, for all of us rather than the few, and how to get the most from it.

A lecture series of 12, two-hour sessions consisting of presentations, followed by questions and discussion for anyone who has felt excluded or confused by the seemingly secret languages of art.
