Changes in the way artists have looked at and represented the countryside is the subject of the next course run by the Nettleton Workers’ Educational Association (WEA).

The seven-week ‘Art and the Countryside’ course starts next Wednesday, April 10.

Sessions will be held at the Methodist Schoolroom in Church Street at 7.30pm.

Run by tutor Maureen Ille, the course will look at paintings from the medieval to the modern period, examining changes in rural life and the landscape which have been depicted through different periods of art history.

Paintings will range from those found in illuminated manuscripts to the oil paintings of the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists.

The course fee is £49 (discounted £44.10) or free in certain circumstances.
