Founder and Director
Mary was born in Africa. Her interest in Art History was ignited when she moved to London. Whilst studying, she realised that others like her may wish to explore this fascinating subject, which led her to found The Course in 1994. Since then, with the expertise of well-known lecturers and subject specialists, she has offered a vast array of classes. She launched the travel arm of the business in 1997 with a study tour to Japan. A multitude of cities, from Athens to Zanzibar have since been explored. Mary’s aspiration is to keep providing original and innovative lectures (rarely repeating any) thus enabling participants to investigate something new every season.
