Welcome to Lydia's Art Talks for Art Lovers in NE London! 

We will start by introducing the main periods and styles of European Art. You'll be able to familiarise yourself with the look and subject of different schools of art and be able to identify them when walking into a gallery.

Today we will look at where it all began - the Middle Ages. 
We will find out what was the impulse behind the creation of first panel paintings in the 13th-14th century, look at the life of the artist, studio practices , learn how to identify the egg tempera technique and find out why it gave way to oil technique in the Netherlands. We will see Europe emerge from the dark ages and into a world of faith, colour and discovery.

Price of £10 includes a glass of wine, a soft drink or a coffee.

    It was a fantastic evening with a fantastic host! The meetup exceeded my expectations and left me so excited to explore the National Gallery's collections and put my new found knowledge to practice. Thank you, Lydia!

      Thank you Gabriella, but a hostess is nothing without her guests and you were a very lovely and inspiring group, who made it very enjoyable for me too. See you next time!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
