Words on Art
Nigel teaches on a range of art-historical themes:
- general overview courses of the whole canon of Western art
- more specialised courses on nineteenth- and twentieth-century art
- a range of topics uniting Christianity and art.
He has lectured at, among others, the Greenbelt arts festival; C S Lewis Foundation Oxbridge summer school; All Soul’s, Langham Place visual arts group; L’Abri Fellowship, Greatham. As a freelance, he has taught for Houghton College, New York; Wheaton College, Illinois; Biola University, Los Angeles; Point Loma Nazarene College, San Diego.
He leads retreats to focus on 'Art and Bible', looking, for instance, at how the good news of Jesus affected the art of Michelangelo and Rembrandt; and also looking at the work of various contemporary Christian artists.
