On Tuesday August 30th you have a new chance  to see my free lecture   –

Art history is fun!

The lecture is going live on Zoom from  9:00 PM – 10:30 PM (UK time)

I’m the only one on camera, so you can just sit back, relax and enjoy yourself!

You will see beautiful artworks, learn about the people who created them, hear some fun facts too and pictures from Paris, Rome and Florence, to help you dream and “travel” with me for an hour and a half.

You can ask me questions in the Q&A box, and I answer all the questions at the end.

No prior knowledge is necessary. This really suits all levels, from those who know nothing, a little or a lot about art and art history. You are going to love it!

Well a long hot summer (for some) less so for others – holidays here and there and lots going on – even though I have missed Edinburgh Festival
