The trip has been put together by specialist art history company, Art History in Focus, and will be led by its director, Art Society lecturer Siân Walters whose study day for us on Women in Art received a rating of  “outstanding” from the committee.  Jenny and Richard Lebus have been done on this Umbria trip with Siân and they say it’s brilliant.
