Learn about women artists currently on display

Using the gallery as a learning resource, this course discovers and explores women artists; encouraging students to create their own masterpiece inspired by their work. Learners will explore painting techniques, including texture, light and shade, colour, composition, and perspective. 

Women artists have been marginalised and misrepresented throughout history. This has often been due to socio-political mores of the given era. Through practical workshops and group discussion, students will examine the issues that lie behind this marginalization. 

Led by Maria Tavares, Artist Educator, this 10 week course will explore the history of women in art. Through a series of practical hands-on exercises, students will learn painting techniques using acrylic paint, as well as having the opportunity to study Tate’s collection of work by women artists.
