Mary Attwood

The Art of Seeing – with Mary Attwood – £10

Next session Thursday 12th November 2020 7-8pm (UK time) by Zoom

This new online session, The Art of Seeing, will run every month on a drop-in basis. You do not have to commit to any number of sessions.
We know how to read a book and get lost in the other world of the imagination, and we allow ourselves to be moved emotionally and viscerally by music, but have we lost our visionary capacity when it comes to looking at works of art?

How to Look at Art – Mary Attwood

via Surrey Adult Learning, starting Monday 21st Sept- 19th Oct, 10am- 1pm - ZOOM class.

This five week course is an extension of the one off classes I have taught on the same topic before. With our museums and galleries full of wonderful works of art, the average visitor still spends only an average of fifteen seconds in front of a work of art. How do we look at art for longer, how do we find a way in and what do we look for?

Art and Consciousness – Mary Attwood

For millennia, images and form in art and architecture have carried meaning, inspired people to accomplish enormous feats and been the medium through which hidden realities could be realised.

Today it may seem an odd concept to move beyond just looking at art to perceiving it as a means with which we can wake up, transform consciousness and be informed with a sense of purpose.

Works of art often only scratch the surface of our thoughts as we fit past them in galleries and museums.

Leonardo Da Vinci – His Life and Work – Mary Attwood

Two week course via Surrey Adult Learning, Wednesday 4th November and Wednesday 11th November, 7- 9pm - ZOOM classes.

Often heralded as the archetypal Renaissance man, Leonardo Da Vinci was truly one of the great polymaths of his time and arguably unrivalled since. Scientist, mathematician, inventor, painter, sculptor and writer, Leonardo had an insatiable yearning to discover what might lie behind the world of natural phenomena.

The Hidden Secrets of Masterpieces – Mary Attwood

Five Week Course via Buckinghamshire, Tuesday 3rd November - 1st December, 7.00- 8.30 pm,  ONLINE classes. This five week course will be a visual feast of great works of art but when it comes to looking at art, there is so much more than meets the eye. These sessions will introduce you to a few known ‘masterpieces’ and reveal some little known facts about them.

Carravaggio – Master of Light and Dark – Mary Attwood

Surrey Adult Learning, Friday 9th October, 10am- 1pm - ZOOM class

This session will focus in detail on some of Caravaggio’s most famous works of art as well as those lesser known. These works are full of drama, movement and emotion, often concealing deeper meaning, and ask the viewer to be an engaged participant in the images he presents before us.
