Taster Days

Outreach pages 2

Have you ever looked at something and wondered why it looks like that?

Do you like looking at images and decoding their messages?

Are you interested in how objects reflect the politics, culture and literature of the societies which made them?

Then Cambridge History of Art Taster Days are for you!

Open to all Year 12 students attending maintained schools- these day long taster events will give you an experience of what it is like to study History of Art at Cambridge. You’ll attend lectures by current Cambridge academics, tour a college, learn about the range of careers that Art History can lead to and work up-close with collections from the Fitzwilliam Museum, just next door to the department.

Travel bursaries and accommodation will be available for students travelling a substantial distance to attend.

The dates of the Spring 2017 taster days will be announced very soon- watch this space! In the meantime, send your questions over to:
