If you are wondering: 
1. How you would like to develop your art, or
2. Where to get inspiration for your next project, or
3. Where you can just look at work that has been produced by well-known artists.

Then, as well as the Classes, Demonstrations and the Informal art sessions that we run, there are a great number of websites to get help from. Here are just a few that I hope you will find of interest:
Raphael's Rooms, Sistine Chapel and many others in the Vatican: Click Here
The Met - New York - So much to look at if you have the time: Click Here
The National Gallery - Virtual Tours: Click Here
