A historical city built with an artist’s finesse

Oxford is a city that resembles a work of art. Each building is designed with flourishes, carvings and images on its walls, windows and hung in its corridors. It also boasts the Ashmolean Museum’s collections of European and Western art, which include Paolo Uccello’s famous ‘The Hunt in the Forest’ and the Pitt Rivers Museum, showcasing art pieces from around the world. Bringing a modern perspective is the Modern Art Oxford gallery, which showcases a wide range of contemporary art. Expert art historians work with state-of-the art technology and restoration projects to uncover the imaginative world of different societies – including our own.

You will have the chance to work with some of the world’s most sophisticated thinkers in this field, examining art from different times and places and analysing its creation reception by the public. Immerse yourself in the mysterious world of the art and the artist.

From age 16 to 24, our Oxford history of art summer courses are designed specifically to fit your level of experience.
