Art & Design Courses

When many people think of art, they think of old Renaissance-era paintings hanging on the wall in a museum. While this definitely is a part of artistic expression, the term actually encompasses a vast array of displays and performances, including paintings, drama, and architecture, to name just a few.

Some people may think of art as inaccessible, but that is likely because it has not been presented to them in the right way. Take a look through our art resources to find some of the broad movements in fine art and see what appeals to you. There is a great deal of difference between Leonardo da Vinci and Frida Kahlo, but both are very important to the art world and worth learning more about.

On the other hand, a beautifully structured building is no less art than a fine painting. Don’t restrict yourself to the traditional definition of art when it permeates the human experience so thoroughly.

Giving yourself the chance to appreciate the intent of and artist and you may discover an affinity for a form of art you never expected.
