What you will learn

These two short sessions will explore Cezanne and his close circle of artists and writers. We will go behind the scenes into the world of the avant-garde area of Montmartre, Paris in the second half of the nineteenth century to reveal and explain Cezanne and his world of ragged lines and radiant colour.

By the end of the course you will be able to

  • Talk about the influences on Cezanne.
  • Recognise the artwork of Cezanne
  • Understand Cezanne’s legacy and impact upon modern art

Class format and activities

The two hours, offered online through ‘Go to Meeting’ or ‘Teams’ will be taught in an informal lecture/ discussion format with Powerpoint presentations shared on screen. There will be a 15-minute break in the middle of the session. You are encouraged to engage in discussion and lecture materials will be shared by email.

Constructive and supportive feedback from your tutor will help you succeed during the class.

Entry requirements

There are no entry requirements. This course will be accessible to you if you have no prior knowledge of art and design and is open to learners with varying backgrounds, as well as art practitioners.

What you need to know before you enrol

This is an online course, offered during COVID-19 restrictions. Teaching materials will be delivered via email and an online system: "Go to Meeting" or "Teams". Instructions and support will be sent out before the course start date by your tutor via email. (For Go to Meeting, you will need to download the app and follow a link sent to you by email.

What you will need for your class

You will need access to the internet and a computer (desktop, laptop, tablet or iPad) that allows you to view images in a good size and quality. Your device will have a (built-in) microphone so you can join in discussions, and ideally have a camera so we can see each other in class. You will find it helpful to bring a paper and pen for making notes. You may also want to upload materials and links to share with your class

What you can do next

We offer a range of long and short courses in art history at Morley and cover a range of periods and subjects of interest. You may like to opt for a lecture based programme online or in the college or one where you visit galleries and study the art and artefacts in situ (subject to Covid 19 restrictions). You can browse our full programme by searching "art history" on our website. Next term, your tutor Julia Jane Heckles will be teaching Post Impressionism.
