With 16 years of experience in providing art history lectures, The Course offers lecture programmes, visits and walks. Established in 1994, The Course is situated in Mayfair, at 1 Berkeley Street, London W1J 8DJ.
The Course provides a range of lectures, courses, visits and walks that enrich and challenge the understanding of the visual arts in a new way. They are suitable for all to enjoy. They enable those with prior knowledge to take a fresh look at the arts while offering the beginner something more substantial than a standard history of styles. The courses take a fresh and innovative approach and encourage lively debate and discussions. Small, informal and friendly groups create the opportunity to socialise and exchange ideas with like-minded people who share the same interest and enthusiasm for the visual arts. The lectures take place at 1 Berkeley Street, London W1J 8DJ.
All the lectures are taught by well-known, well qualified lecturers who use high quality teaching materials including slides, digital images, video and music.

|I have been on several trips with The Course: both Day Trips in London and Study Tours abroad. I was extremely impressed by the organisation of the trips. They were well run and no attention to detailed was spared. The trips themselves were fascinating, with hugely qualified and erudite lecturers. I learned a large amount and it is knowledge I treasure to this day. I also very much enjoyed meeting the other students. There was a lovely mixture of people.|
|I had the opportunity recently to attend some lectures at this well run establishment and was suitably impressed. The lecturers are enthusiastic, very knowledgeable & good communicators. It was fun to be learning in this relaxed atmosphere and the other students seemed to be enjoying themselves as much as I was. I hope to make The Course part of my life in the near future.|
|I travelled with The Course on two fabulous study tours to China and|
Egypt. The lecturers were very well informed and the trips extremely well
organised. We visited places not usually open to the public and learned so much about the art and history of each country.
