Embark on a journey throughout the History of Art with this series of eight dynamic and interactive sessions, where the experience of discovering merges with open discussion and conversation.


Art Across is a project created by art historian Sara Riccardi (History of Art MA at ‘La Sapienza’ University of Rome) that aims to stimulate engagement and create connections between the artists of today and those of the past, through a series of sessions with an interactive structure. The format stretches from the Middle Ages to contemporary times and features eight sessions where the participants are invited to explore the arts in an essential, chronological overview, discovering the threads that link together centuries of art production.

This series will provide you with an excellent overview of the most significant phases in Art History, which can go on to inform your work, inspire your artistic practice or be further developed through academic/personal studies. It will offer you a platform of conversation, and the opportunity to discuss key artistic themes with other artists and art lovers. The sessions are also a perfect way to spend your Saturday mornings, as they are truly fascinating while being friendly, fun and interactive!
