WHY IS IT ART COURSE:
Have you ever gone to a contemporary art exhibition and wondered how is it possible that this could be art? How could an empty canvas be considered a work of art? Or, how could it be that a shark is sold for more than 9.000.000 GBP?
Would you like to have the tools to understand and enjoy an art exhibition critically?
In these ten classes, you will learn what has occurred over the last 200 years of art history, which has changed what we comprehend and define as Art. Why did we go from brass sculptures to sharks in formaldehyde? The classes will take place in multiple museums in London, allowing you to discover and analyse each iconic work directly.
Each class is a live webinar that you can attend each week so that you can ask questions directly about each artist. We will send you a link so you can play it back f you cannot attend the class or want to hear it again throughout the week.
