Art is where cultural, creative and historical characteristics are expressed–in timeless works that ultimately belong to us all. Cultural Art History at Warnborough College fully explores the cultural cross-fertilization of traditions manifested in works of art—and the influences underlying their production.


The realm of art transcends the boundaries of time, place, religion, politics, economics and culture. Cultural Art History at Warnborough College explores the ongoing fascination for and importance of works of art—over time—from multicultural and interdisciplinary perspectives. Art history has never been more significant in the broad cultural fabric.
