How you read a painting so you can understand, discuss and learn from it? Art is a window into society but we rarely spend the time to understand what we see and think about what it means or how it reflects us personally. Different styles of art can be difficult to interpret so how do we find answers in paintings that can teach, inspire us and make us think? This is an interactive talk to show participants how to read and decode different aspects of paintings by analysing their elements.
