Course Overview

This short course will help you gain an appreciation of the beginnings of modern art in the 19th century, and its developments through the 20th century up to the present day. You will learn how to identify the styles within famous art movements like Impressionism, Cubism, Surrealism, Pop Art and much more, as well as finding out about the lives of the artists themselves, and the experiences that made them create such distinctive work.

No prior knowledge of art is required, and you should just want to learn more about this wonderful subject. There are no exams or tests, but this course can be a stepping stone if you wish to take your learning further.

Through analysis of the different styles and techniques of a variety of artists, you will learn about visual elements such as line, shape, tone and much more, giving you the confidence to view art in a much more informed way – and as we explore a wide range of artworks there will be many opportunities to critically examine the message that a particular artist is trying to convey through their chosen medium.

If you found this introductory course enjoyable, you can progress onto our other art appreciation & history courses, examining different cultures and focussing on other artists, art movements and well-known work.
