On the Shoulders of Giants – Southampton City Art Gallery

With Kate Measham

Using the Picture Collection from the Southampton City Art Gallery you will learn how to work with these artistic giants in their fields, learn aspects of their techniques and use them to your own advantage in your art work.

Southampton City Art Gallery holds one of the finest collections of art in the south of England and holds ‘Designated’ status, awarded by Arts Council England. Currently comprising over 5,000 works and spanning eight centuries, the collection is an outstanding educational resource that can trace the history of European art from the Renaissance to the present.
