Come to our Study Day on 16 February

The Study Day is entitled "Painting the Elements: Earth, Water, Air and Fire"
and our lecturer is Alexandra Drysdale

Alexandra examines how artists through the ages have represented the Elements. The day begins with the history of the Elements in different cultures from Ancient Greece to China and India. The Elements have been regarded as both physical substances and as spiritual energies that manifest themselves in nature and in the human being. A wide range of art will be shown, including Frieda Kahlo, Richard Long, Bridget Riley, David Hockney and Alexandra Drysdale.

It’s head office is based in London and it is a leading arts education charity with over 385 Societies worldwide and over 90,000 members.
