More than Meets the Eye: Understanding the Visual Language of Art Dr Val Woodgate Monday 04 February 2019

Artists can manipulate colour, form, composition and subject-matter (even facts!) in order to explore universal themes such as life, death, feelings, politics and to engage our emotional participation in the work.

Lecturer: Dr Val Woodgate is a lecturer and guide at Tate Britain and Tate Modern, and also at many other London galleries. A former member of the teaching team at Dulwich Picture Gallery, she is also a Lecturer and runs courses at Pallant House Gallery, Chichester.
