The Return of the Day School!

The Royal West of England Academy delivers a programme of one day Art History Day Schools delivered by experienced tutors and academics providing an introduction to a number of subjects, often linking in with RWA shows or key exhibitions in galleries elsewhere (Tate Britain and Tate Modern, for example).
