Brasenose Student Caroline’s History of Art Academics
I’m Caroline Zinneha. My experience at Bucksmore has been amazing. The teachers are very professional. The lessons and the workshops are going very well. I’m taking History of Art class. I have been always curious about the subject itself but I didn’t get the chance to learn it. So when I saw it on Bucksmore’s programme I become very happy and excited. The lesson changed my way of looking at paintings and painters. I’m learning so much about them and about way they paint. I’m learning the periods such as Renaissance and Neo-Classical. I’m learning terms such as perspective, composition, lights and the materials that painters use. When I look at a painting I can understand what’s going on there, what the story behind the painting is and I think when you can understand the painting and the emotion in it. The painting won’t be just a painting to you, it will become a moment of a life. Also, my course offers excursions to the art museums such as the Ashmolean.
For my final assignment I picked history of female artists. I’m doing research at the moment and I’m really enjoying it. In the lessons I’m doing a lot of presentations about Monet, Renoir, Degas, Michelangelo and more. If you are interested in art or history of art I can fully recommend this course for you. You will have so much fun in summer with Bucksmore!
