‘The Comprehensive School of Art’ – irreverent but hilarious

In this show, Shirley Halse takes us on an irreverent journey through the history of art and some of its most famous paintings. In her guise as ‘art expert’, we are presented with her particular take on art, with interesting facts and silliness running along side by side, though undoubtedly with the emphasis on silly!

Shirley engaged the audience from the beginning with a little audience participation in the way of drawing (on your own and nothing difficult!). She then continued to maintain an easy rapport with us throughout, creating an easy and relaxed atmosphere in which to enjoy the humour. I left the venue with my spirits lifted!
