Art is a wonderful medium of expression and communication.
I have developed dynamic and varied ways for you to engage with art, and the creative inspiration it often provokes.
Browse through my courses and events, and find the door that will allow you to enter a world of art, expression and connection.
ART HISTORY COURSES
Series of sessions, providing interactive, engaging learning experiences. Existing, ready-to-go courses are listed below, but Sara is always willing to take on specific requests and design new series. All the sessions are created to work autonomously, and they can be enjoyed as part of the wider series, for in-depth understanding of the themes treated.

In this special format, Sara is in conversation with one or more artists; her role is not only that of coordinating the talk, but also of actively participating: she alternates with the artists, taking inspiration from the themes they address and creating connections with the art of the past centuries. Artists, patrons, writers and all sorts of art professionals from history are virtually invited to join the conversation.
TALKS | SESSIONS | WORKSHOPS
Sara can plan and deliver one-off events, that can take the form of simple lectures, sessions, workshops that respond to a specific exhibition, or whatever other form will suit your institution, project or idea.
CREATIVE COLLABORATIONS and MENTORING
From the collaboration with contemporary artists, a variety of projects can emerge, as an artist's work can be inspired and expand through the dialogue with the History of Art, and the exchange is always mutually enriching. This type of partnership is highly tailored to the different creatives and their work, and therefore takes a completely different shape each time.
Recent projects include a trip to Rome with artist Nicola Dale to study traditional representations of Saints (funded by the Arts Council England and the British Council through the Artists' International Development Fund) and a solo exhibition of artist Steven Heaton's new body of work, inspired by conversations, studio visits and shared explorations of past and contemporary art.
As part of Sara's commitment to bringing art and its history to life, she loves to apply my skills to curating exhibitions - sometimes as a result or part of collaborations with contemporary artists.
The ability of critically engaging with past and contemporary art is part of Sara's set of skills as a trained art historian, and she is always happy to put it into practice by providing different types of writing, from exhibition reviews to catalogue essays.
