Jon Long: A Celebration of Traditional Western Art & Heritage
So what you're saying is...
This week on "So What You're Saying Is..." Peter speaks with artist Jon Long, founder of The Renaissance Workshop, an arts and humanities initiative which offers life drawing classes in the 15th and 16th c. tradition and workshops exploring the history and development of Western art and culture. During the lockdown these are now available world via Zoom and YouTube: www.therenaissanceworkshop.comJon is motivated by the passionate belief that the creative and intellectual legacy of Western Culture, from Antiquity to the Early Modern Period, is something that can be profoundly empowering for individuals and can stimulate artistic advancement today. Jon feels stronglythat in this time of lockdown, we cannot allow ourselves to become culturally and creatively emaciated. We can still participate in Western heritage and draw meaning and value from it. He founded The Renaissance Workshop with the aim of widening participation in traditional Western art and heritage in order to enable people to connect to our culture in a practical and life-enhancing way. He now believes that in this time of social isolation, we need not be alone; we may interact with the legacy of those who generated and shaped our cultural heritage through the arts and humanities and thus bring their contributions into the living present. The Renaissance Workshop is an arts and humanities initiative which offers life drawing classes in the 15th and 16th c. tradition and workshops exploring the history and development of Western art and culture. Jon promotes a positive vision of western heritage and aims to widen participation with its legacy. He has adapted his teaching to the lockdown moving all his classes online on YouTube and Zoom. He is now launching a series of online courses on art and history which anyone can take part in.

3: Loremen S2 Ep3 - Jon Long - The Lincoln Imp and The Red Book of Appin
The Loremen discover that Lincoln Green is people, and ride to windswept Argyll on an "entire" horse. In Episode 3, James and Alasdair are joined by another Deputy Loreman: award-having comedian and troubadour Jon Long. Find the show notes here: www.loremenpodcast.com/episode-3-s2 @loremenpod www.instagram.com/loremenpod www.loremenpodcast.com/about www.facebook.com/LoremenPod @JamesShakeshaft | @MisterABK | @jonlongstandup Here’s the Lincoln Echo video Jon tells us about. (We were clearly joking about this guy. Do not sue us, please.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12AEvoeNaJ0 A quick correction: It turns out St Mary’s unique porch in Chipping Norton is HEXagonal, not octagonal. And there are two other like it. Also, the Princess Di visit is not corroborated: https://www.britainexpress.com/attractions.htm?attraction=5086 Finally, never let it be said that the Lincoln Echo can’t do clickbait titles: Do You Like Lincoln’s Big Metal Face?
