‘OFF THE WALL’ Art History Sessions with Samantha Hann

Join us in this brand-new series of Art History Sessions with Samantha Hann, art history lecturer, artist and Yeovil Creatives member.  These sessions will be a light-hearted, whistle-stop tour, looking at and discussing a small selection of works of art from 1900 to the modern day. These works have changed the direction of art history in some capacity, and each poses the continuous question, what is art? Fun and informative tasks will be part of the sessions, allowing for conversation, and embedding the concepts and ideas through practical application!

Talk 1: Wednesday 19 April 6-8pm
Talk 2: Wednesday 17 May 6-8pm
Talk 3: Wednesday 21 June 6-8pm
