Just a quick hello, to thank everyone who has supported me with my study and exams recently – I passed with flying colours!
I am now doing several more History of Art and Scottish History courses. I thought my regular readers might enjoy hearing about the Field Trips I am doing for the History of Art one.
Every other week, after a lecture on the topic, we take the field trips. We visited/are visiting the following places:
- St. Machar Cathedral
- Aberdeen Art Gallery
- National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh
- Provost Skene’s House
- St. John’s Church
It’s amazing to get to go out and experience art first hand, and I’d really missed this during my course last term. Though it’s nice to read books and look at pictures, nothing compares to the real thing – so make sure you get out there and experience some art near you very soon!
I’ve enjoyed all my visits, but I loved the galleries in Edinburgh, and so nice to be able to catch the Young Vermeer exhibition before it finished. I’ve just recently finished reading The Girl With a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier, so it was a funny coincidence too!
