Fine Art Society Lectures

Now accepting lecture bookings for 2024, 2025 and beyond.
If you would like a slide lecture for your local fine art society on a variety of subjects ranging from early Renaissance to Impressionism, this can also be arranged at £500.00 for a one hour lecture. My lectures are given in the PowerPoint format only, and although I can supply my own laptop, I would require the society to have their own digital projector that I can connect to.
