Thinking of trying out something new for the New Year? If you like art and what to find out about about the artists, their times and the influences that were behind the paintings that you see in art galleries and country houses, then this course of lectures is for you. You don’t have to know anything about art history before you come – but you will by the end of the course!

The ten art history classes begin at the Drill Hall Chepstow on Monday 28th January, 2-4pm, and are organised by Chepstow Museum with popular local lecturer Eleanor Bird MA (Oxon).
