Business Excellence Awards

As someone who is interested in art history and the visual arts, you’ll find our range of lectures and courses exciting, stimulating and enriching.
Perhaps you already have an art history degree. Or you have previously taken courses elsewhere. Maybe you have never studied the visual arts before but you’re passionate about a particular period, style or artist.
Whatever your background, you’ll find our courses will challenge you to see the arts in new ways. Established in 1994, The Course programmes take a fresh and innovative approach and encourage lively debate and discussion.
They also cross over into literature, music and opera. Our groups are small, informal and friendly and of course you’ll have the opportunity to socialise and exchange ideas with like-minded people who share your interest and enthusiasm for the visual arts.
You can attend individual lectures at any time. It is not necessary to book an entire course. Walks are subject to availability and priority is given to those who attend the whole series. Please check with us before booking.
We arrange bespoke visits for academic bodies, specialist clubs and societies. If you prefer individual tuition, or a private guided museum visit or walk, we can also arrange this at your convenience anywhere, anytime.
All our lectures take place at The University Women’s Club http://www.universitywomensclub.com. The Club, near The Dorchester Hotel, is situated at 2 Audley Square, London W1K 1DB, at the south end of South Audley Street (click here for map). There are parking meters nearby and several NCP car parks in the vicinity. The nearest underground stations are Green Park and Hyde Park Corner with access to the Victoria, Piccadilly and Jubilee lines. Buses stop in Park Lane outside the Dorchester and Hilton Hotels.
All our lectures are taught by well-known, well-qualified lecturers who use high quality teaching materials including slides, digital images, video and music.
