Across 10 online classes, we take a selective and curated journey through the chronology and themes in world art.
The purpose is to focus on those works that have the capacity to inspire us, and provide us with insight that shapes our own lives. In this way, we can develop a relationship with art that is more dynamic and coactive. We cease to become merely passive observers of beautiful objects. As we interpret these works, they become part of us.
While I will lead the discussion by showing art objects that have shaped my own life, giving the background and critical assessment of the work, it’s history and context, I will also invite class members to share art works that are important to them. I hope this will create a fertile discussion where all of us can take away something.
In this way we can learn how to arrive meaning from art, not merely enjoyment. Our collective human culture can be a resource for our individual lives.
I am a life long lover and student of art, and I’ve had the good fortune to travel the world and enjoy the glories of world art and architecture.
I spent a year studying Art History at the Courtauld Institute as part of my History degree.
During my career as a coach, I’ve used visits to art galleries, sculpture and noticeable buildings to prompt reflective dialogue with clients.
In the class, I will prioritise works that I’ve seen and experienced directly.
The classes will run weekly, starting from Wednesday 31 March 12:30-13:30 at UK time.
The first class is free
Thereafter, each individual class is £20 per person.
If you pay for all subsequent 9 classes you pay £160 in total, as you receive an additional free class at the end.
Andrew has a wonderful manner when he is in teacher/training mode and you WANT to learn from him. I have had the pleasure of being this situation on a one:one and a group situation and came away each time enlightened and more importantly what he taught stayed with me.
I supervised Andrew through his practitioner doctorate at Middlesex University and was hugely impressed by the innovative work that he did in supporting young entrepreneurs. Andrew has a wide corporate experience gained in many international settings and has vast experience as an executive coach.
This combination of successful engagement at both the 'C' suite level and also the young start up is rare and Andrew negotiates this territory with panache and wisdom.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Andrew as a coach, mentor and academic advisor.
Prof Brian Sutton
Andrew is a great colleague and a great asset to Birkbeck's Centre for Innovation Management Research. His expertise on entrepreneurship theory and practice has been very valuable to the Centre, first as Entrepreneur in Residence where he contributed to the development of the student-led Entrepreneurship Hub, and later as a Fellow of the Centre contributing to our research and knowledge exchange activities. Andrew is a knowledgeable and professional colleague, and a great mentor to students and aspiring entrepreneurs.
Andrew conducted a short workshop with myself and my colleagues on how coaching and mentoring crosses over with the role of teaching. He was well prepared, offered us a lot of additional resources both before and after the workshop and was generous with his time.
Andrew is a knowledgeable and considerate tutor who takes the time to fully understand the needs and aims of his students whether he is interacting with them on a one off basis or building up a relationship over time. I have always found him to be a curious and interested person when it comes to learning about subjects which are not his specialism and has a genuine purpose of helping others.
It is rare to find a tutor who is equally as eager to learn from others as they are for teaching. I cannot recommend Andrew enough.
I have participated in Andrew's online classes and they provide excellent professional and personal development support. They are full of interesting ideas and useful tips. Andrew's teaching benefits from his coaching approach, and he asks lots of good thought-provoking questions and he listens well. I would definitely recommend his classes to anyone looking for advanced professional or academic learning.
