THIS COURSE

Learn how to look at art - for free.

How to look at art? That is the question.

Often when we look at an artwork we think: where should I look? What should I see? On which elements should I focus?

We doubt: why does everyone around me say that this particular masterpiece is so great?

What is worse, we doubt ourselves: I don’t like this piece. Is something wrong with me?

Let’s be honest, it is rare to have art history lessons at schools – or to have a decent amount of hours of it. We have a right to feel intimidated when nobody has taught us before how to look at art. This free course will give you courage and a few tips that will make you feel better when looking at art, regardless of whether you’ve had any art expertise before or not.

Seeing art is one thing – but there is also feeling art. We will talk about this as well. Because – as with all fruits of human creativity and genius – art is something that can be perceived both intellectually and emotionally.

We hope that this course will make you enjoy art more and make you feel comfortable with it. Even if you have enrolled in our other courses, check this one out beforehand. Enjoy!

Very helpful. I got to know some tips for what I should concern when I see paintings

You really manage to transmit your love for art to the reader: you would make even someone who is totally uninterested in art eager to know more and to learn, let alone people like me, who already love art and always want to learn more! Thank you for this course and for encouraging the reader to ask questions and then try to answer them, the best way to learn! Looking forward to take all the other courses! <3

Fun and interesting course. It really helps if you are not familiar with art. If you are familiar, it gives good points of view and it puts in order your thoughts on what you see.

Very helpful to understand Art in a easy way.
Annika Weber 1364 days ago
The perfect way for anyone, no matter their experience, to get started at interacting with art, some helpful tips I would not have thought of myself.
[email protected] 1364 days ago
Very concise, to the point, and entertaining! Basic stuff, but indispensable as a foundation for experiencing art at a deeper level. Five stars, though there is no Ingres, which is a shame.
[email protected] 1362 days ago
The course introduces the general rules of appreciating an artwork to us. I agree with what was written in the course - there is no right or wrong way of looking at art. Our own feelings matter :)
[email protected] 1362 days ago
A charming short course on how to comfortably approach and enjoy art. This is a great level-setting exercise with practical advice and a charming writing style. Thanks so much!
[email protected] 1361 days ago
This little course pairs very well with the daily art app - I’m writing these questions down and I’ll try to answer them again and again with the art you show me each day. It’s such a comforting thought that art can be about what it means to me, not just to the artist, the critic, and/or the expert. Ty <3

Nice non-intimidating intro to art appreciation.
[email protected] 1361 days ago
Thanks a lot for this course! I would be glad to attend more free courses...
[email protected] 1361 days ago
Instructions that may sound so simple actually make a huge difference in the way we can experience art. This mini course really shows how small changes in our habits of perception can make us appreciate art beyond just beauty, tackling our emotions as well.
[email protected] 1361 days ago
Good use of art examples and easy to understand. Would be nice to have your opinion of the pieces and explanation/history of them at the end.
[email protected] 1361 days ago
Very good framework for appreciating art in a way that anyone can follow. Thanks for this quick & useful course!
[email protected] 1361 days ago
Perfect introduction to art. Thank you!
[email protected] 1360 days ago
I love this course! I do these kinds of tours with groupe where we SEE and FEEL and relate to art! You did a great job in a very short course! Bravo!
[email protected] 1360 days ago
The course was educational. I feel it could be improved by giving examples of answers at the end of each lesson, to the questions posed. I appreciate every one will have different ideas, but it would have been helpful to know what experienced art lovers read into the pictures. Am motivated enough to enrol on another course, thank you.

great introduction!
[email protected] 1359 days ago
Super helpful and great reminders as well as great questions to ask.
[email protected] 1359 days ago
Nice little course. Brief and to the point. It will help the novice to understand part of what their seeing. One important thing I would emphasize is context when possible. Example, it’s hard to understand, say Impressionism or Abstract Impressionism for example, without the knowledge of the artist’s time frame, influences, and the events of their day.
[email protected] 1359 days ago
Too short course but really interesting and encouraging to learn more about art and how to study it.
[email protected] 1359 days ago
Overall - a useful introduction. The course could include more interactive material (audio/video). It suggests that other (paid) courses do not use any interactive materials. I guess it's intentional but I would have liked more information about the presented artwork to be revealed at some point after the exercises.
[email protected] 1359 days ago
Good first step covering the basics.
[email protected] 1359 days ago
an amazing way to understand art even if you're a novice or english isn't your first language (p.s. me encantaría obtener un diploma)
[email protected] 1359 days ago
Good. A guide for beginners. Would be nice to have the possibility to get some descriptions and emotions from the author of the course after having done with the execises.
[email protected] 1359 days ago
I want the course be more examples. Thank you
[email protected] 1359 days ago
Great introduction to art and easy to understand.
[email protected] 1359 days ago
I really like that it's a very brief course but it says a lot! The questions are very interesting. It's the kind of content you will want to check when you want to refresh your mind before visiting a museum or looking at an online gallery. Thank you!
[email protected] 1359 days ago
Amazing, thank you!
[email protected] 1358 days ago
Helpful if you are new at this, but you need to have time and be patient.
[email protected] 1358 days ago
A lovely little introduction to appreciating art pieces, for complete amateurs. Perhaps it is outside the scope of this minicourse but I would have liked to hear of the writer's personal feelings on the pieces, as an example in how to express your feelings for what you are looking at, which can be difficult at times. Highly recommend for those with zero experience in art looking to start somewhere!
[email protected] 1358 days ago
Nice class, I wold make the paintings more close as geners, meaning that going from Manet to contemporart artist is kind off “the hard way” especially for begginers :) Thanks S
[email protected] 1358 days ago
It was a really helpful course, it makes you aware of all of the pieces that make an artwork whole and at the same time it helps you understand the way in which the articles of the magazine are written.
[email protected] 1358 days ago
Great course, interesting.
[email protected] 1357 days ago
I thought the complement of questions and suggestions for looking at art were invaluable. It was a well-paced and superbly organized introduction. I look forward to implementing these observational questions in your next courses. Thank you, Stephanie
Jin Rhee 1357 days ago
Really enjoyed this course! Sadly, as you've mentioned a few times, it's rather short. BUT: It did make me curious to try out the other courses as well :-) I've got some helpful insights from this course and I love your excitment on art!
Joanne Higinbotham 1357 days ago
It would be helpful if you could continuously view the painting while reading the text. Interesting and thought provoking
Plume Palette 1357 days ago
A bit simple.
[email protected] 1357 days ago
The course was really helpful. I love art and sometimes feel confused about the ways of seeing it. Thank you for your free course.
[email protected] 1356 days ago
Was what I expected it do be. Both a short introductory guided reflection on how to look at art as well as a way to gage at what level I can appreciate art. For people who don't visit museums, perhaps a helpful hand-hold (though that is personal of course), for people who are museum-savvy (which I do consider myself to be) a reassurance.
[email protected] 1356 days ago
great!

Jan Pleus 1353 days ago
I think it is a good start. It might be useful to advise people not to try and look at every single piece of art exhibited in the museum. Especially if you have the opportunity to visit this museum several times. Make a selection of the artworks you really want to see and spend time on them. An other advice could be to look at the website of the museum. Sometimes (more and more) the museum enables you to make an on line tour on the exhibition. Invest some time to prepare your visit.
[email protected] 1352 days ago
I really liked it! Objective and approachable. I'll just leave here a couple of little improvement suggestions: to enable the art pieces preview in bigger size and to offer an audio alternative to the text. Thanks!
Cem Ergünay 1352 days ago
I really loved the course. However, it would also be nice for the course tutor to put her conclusion out of the masterpieces according to the way of approach which is taught in the course. But this is not a reason to drop star of course.
[email protected] 1352 days ago
This really made me think and look deeper but I would have liked to be able to view the painting at the same time as being asked the questions I had to keep scrolling backwards and forwards
[email protected] 1352 days ago
Really great starting course! It really opens your eyes. In the end I would have liked it more, if there was some kind of examples or hints for the composition, rhythm, colors, et cetera. For the beginning I always like to see how the professionals do it, to understand how they see and look at the art.
[email protected] 1352 days ago
I loved it! So simple, yet so enlightening! As l was answering the questions and going back to the art work, I would see even more and come up with a different story about it every time. It made me curious to know the people depicted and also the artists! I want to take these questions with me every time I go to a museum! (And I wish I had them when I went to all those famous museums...). I suggest to have the art work fixed on the screen as we scroll into the questions, would that be possible? I think it would make the suggested reflexion easier. And maybe have the same questions rewritten on the Modern & Contemporary Art lesson. Again, just to make things easier. I loved the course!! I would and will recommend it to friends. (And now I wish there were someone I could share my ideas and insights from the paintings we just saw - and listen to theirs!). Thank you Daily Art for making this course available to us!!
Dana Sasu 1351 days ago
It offered a really nice and inclusive perspective on art reception.
[email protected] 1351 days ago
Very timely. This gives you the questions to ask yourself and think about. The course achieves its aims of making you look deeper. Perhaps needed a little more in the modern art section.
[email protected] 1351 days ago
Just strikingly enlightening.
Sofia Pinto 1350 days ago
A good beginner's course in how to look at art. Despite being short, it is consice and gives useful tips in how to appreciate and feel art. Many feel overwhelmed by what they do not understand and believe to be much deeper and requiring knowledge the person does not have, but with this short course, anyone can feel ready to look at art and experience it. It is a good way to start a possible second course related to the same subject, something more in depth, explaining how art experts look at art, for example. It could also be interesting to make short videos about it, to engage people while guiding them through the explanation.
[email protected] 1350 days ago
I wish there had been some description of what one might notice about the painting after seeing it. For instance, the girl's expression, sad. The reflection in the mirror of the man talking to her, but in the painting she is looking straight ahead, there is the customers reflection in the mirror with one lady highlighted. The bar lady could be sad that she isn't this woman. Colors are subdued so bargirl stands out. This way students could revisit painting. Any other possibilities could be included, like why a plate of uneaten oranges. This is a great app! Excellent. So glad I found it.
[email protected] 1350 days ago
It is very nice! Do you have any plan to make video lessons?
[email protected] 1348 days ago
Lesson learned.... advance toward a work of art in the loneliness of our own truth.

Very brief, but to the point. Makes you think and that is what all good art should do.

[email protected] 1345 days ago
Good, On the computer it was easy to translate the entire page, from English to Spanish
[email protected] 1344 days ago
I like it as an intro to other courses. This is true of course and I've been doing this type of 'seeing the art' since always. I know this is the general course but to tempt me to continue with other I would love to see your angle at 2 paintings presented in this free course. To show what one might expect from more detailed courses.
[email protected] 1343 days ago
Thank you for the course. In fact, even though the course is short and written things are quite easy familiar, this little "manual" really helps, especially with the genre paintings. In particular, I like the "Feelings" section, an approach to imagine myself as a participant in the picture. I have already turned to this "immersion technique" several times.
Anna Maria Zinner 1343 days ago
I've never actually read or learned anything about how to look at art, so this was a good starting point!
[email protected] 1342 days ago
I enjoyed the short course and appreciated the basic intent however I would have liked to see some further exploration of the two art pieces. Perhaps a few ideas of what one "might see" or feel to get an understanding of the differences that can be garnered from a single piece.
[email protected] 1342 days ago
If you want to learn how to look at art an understand why are particular pieces popular, that's your course. Although, a little bit more about looking at modern art would be nice.
[email protected] 1341 days ago
I really enjoyed the guiding questions when looking at art, and I do feel more trust in my opinions and how I look at art. Thank you for the lovely course!
[email protected] 1341 days ago
Great, now I undertand deeper how to see and not to look the art , piece with better feelings.
[email protected] 1341 days ago
It'd be even more intresting if in e.g. Manet's work you'd give some tips like e.g. did you see the green shoes from the girl above the crowd
[email protected] 1340 days ago
Great introduction with lots of things to think about.
[email protected] 1340 days ago
This is a lovely, simple (but not simplistic) little course. Perfect for anyone wishing to begin to understand how to interact with art. Well done!
Noelle Perez Sansaricq 1340 days ago
Great little intro! I like the set up and text quality. It makes me want to try the other courses and I don’t mind pay for for!
[email protected] 1334 days ago
I really appreiate how the couse is organized and how useful it is. I have got no doubt that my next stop in a museum or gallery of art will be totally different, and because of the course it will. I just woul like to get a certificate as clousure gift (waiting). Daily Art is amazing in everything, tho.
[email protected] 1334 days ago
I really like this course! Most of all, the questionts 👏🏻 And the most important thing in art: TIME. Thank you very much.
[email protected] 1333 days ago
Good course. Clear and concrete. It gives us the basic (but not less important) steps to enjoy art.
[email protected] 1333 days ago
Great little course! Just what I need to make me curious for more Art. Thank you.
Kauê Gropelo 1332 days ago
Perfect! It shows how looking at art is something that can be done by literally everyone. People usually shy away from making commentaries on the piece of art they are seeing, or sometimes they feel like it "means nothing", but there is always so much more to it. Anyone can relate to a piece of art on an emotional level, and that's what beautiful about art. There's no "right" or 'wrong", there's only "what are you thinking?". Love the course!
[email protected] 1331 days ago
Basic and simple, but so helpful. Looking at art is really like meditating :)
[email protected] 1331 days ago
Nice start! Gives some real good starting points for looking at art.
[email protected] 1329 days ago
Covers the basics. Now I want to know more about the composition of the painting and what the artist intended to express viz emotions

Thank you for educating me. I feel more confident now and I will certainly apply all the suggestions I was given to the next masterpiece I will look at. Please keep adding courses. So far, I love them - In fact, I just bought all of them
[email protected] 1327 days ago
It is realy very short and basic course. There are some tips but I expected something more-how to interpreted art, what is important at, some important clues, one deep case study. The course is too shallow.

Marija Canjuga 1325 days ago
The course is great. The concept is clear, it has everything you have to mention about the main theme, and it is simply to follow it.
[email protected] 1324 days ago
Surprisingly short but to the point, I thought it would be videos but to read and have time to look at the paintings was better... maybe if one could have made them bigger, to focus on them. Thank you
Claudia Bognar Sanders 1324 days ago
Nice, short introduction to viewing art.
[email protected] 1324 days ago
The suggestions made me look at the artwork differently.

Laura Lotta Andersson 1320 days ago
This course makes you want to see the paintings in real, not only through your screen.
[email protected] 1320 days ago
Great lessons! Thank you! I confess that I was waiting for some analysis on the artworks. I learned about the personal relationship with the images and that there is no right or wrong, but I was still curious about your vision.

Obrigado pelo curso. Aprender a apreciar uma obra de arte requer tempo e muito estudo. Quando visito museus eu pesquiso antes sobre algumas obras e vou em busca delas para apreciar seu esplendor e detalhes que não vemos nos livros. um abraço desde o Chile.

Anne 1296 days ago
We are long-time art aficionados, but this course was thought-provoking; had never thought about what noises we might hear if the art work were to come to life. Excellent!
[email protected] 1293 days ago
I really love this course on how to look at art. It is a great introduction to provoke thinking and show different perspectives on seeing a painting:) It helps me to learn that art is very personal that could resonate various feelings of audiences. It also helps the artists to think from a viewer's perspective and may assist them with composing their artwork to have an impact and its unique value:)
[email protected] 1288 days ago
Definitely thought provoking and opened the door to a new way of approaching an art work. Would welcome more on abstract modern as still have a problem getting the most from such artwork!
[email protected] 1284 days ago
Great questions to elicit thinking about the art.
[email protected] 1284 days ago
Great Introduction course! Although you believe there is no right or wrong in art, I would have enjoyed some "solutions" in form of suggestions to the questions. To find out something new, something I might not have seen/felt yet.
[email protected] 1284 days ago
Simple and basic concepts to find meaningful understanding of pieces of art

Good intro, yhankyou.
[email protected] 1283 days ago
I love it so much! Thank you. I've learned a lot from this course, which I never knew before. I thought the artists are tricking us when we loom at their artworks, but I've learned to trust in it and look what it means from the artist and mine. Thank you for giving this course for free! I've appreciated art because of this. Have a nice day and God bless!
[email protected] 1283 days ago
I just took the course and found it to be a good way to reconnect with art after so many museum free months due to the COVID 19 quarantine.. While the information wasn't new it was a very helpful and satisfying reminder of the basics in how to best experience artwork. Thank you..
[email protected] 1283 days ago
This is the first step in understanding art. Thank you!

Interesting course, simple but great information to enjoy art even more. It gives confidence and I have to give credits to the writer! Very funny and well written, thank you. Last but not least I appreciate how Daily Art can bring so much joy and doesn't push to much to buy. I don't have a lot of money, but you don't make me feel poor, plus what you get for the prices here is amazing! Something worth saving for

Lori Mills 1275 days ago
This course gives so many specific tips for interacting with art rather than just looking at it. It demystifies the painting so that each person can relate to it in their own unique way. I am looking forward to learning about French Impressionist paintings in the next course now!
[email protected] 1275 days ago
I love art. At museums, exhibitions, galleries, etc. I stop, look, and move on to the next piece. This short course has taught me not just to look, but to see the art. To notice details, how the piece makes me feel, to appreciate the colors, the emotion of the artist. Highly recommend this course for a brief but essential guide to appreciating, understanding and expanding the art we see.
Şakir Yıldız 1273 days ago

[email protected] 1272 days ago
I liked it so much, I appreciate how welcome it is and how you target the exact problem I and many other people have, trust in our opinion toward how we look at art. I will have loved to have a bigger and extended course, but I couldn't pay it just yet. Thanks again I'm going to practice my new steps and develop my confidence looking at art.

I love this mini course. I teach art history. You have given me many ideas on how to structure my classes so that my students can have a deeper understanding of what they are looking at.

The matter is more intriguing of what you could think at first sight. Yuo ask the right questions and they resonate. good
[email protected] 1245 days ago
Good intro to someone new to viewing art. I am a bit experienced. My only suggestion is that though your point was viewing art is a personal thing, I think it would be interesting to point out examples of things the viewer may not see with just cursory look. With the Manet for example, I was fascinated when someone pointed out the reflection in the mirror - after I'd viewed it several times. Thanks!
[email protected] 1244 days ago
I enjoyed the tongue in cheek tone (Aren't you glad you didn't pay for this course; put down your phone). I love the impressionists and I know this Manet, seen it many times (tho only once in person), but your questions did cause me to look at it more closely than ever before. I am now intrigued by the one patron all in white sitting amongst the other darker ones. My only suggestion for layout is that it would be good to be able to see the questions and the painting side by side. I found having to go back and forth between the two a little distracting. Othewise, bravo!
[email protected] 1242 days ago
This basic course was useful as it has confirmed my intuition to pick up only a few pictures in the gallery and spend a lot of time at each of them in a "structured "way described in the course.
[email protected] 1237 days ago
The course made me want to study a piece of art rather than just look at it. Very worthwhile in just a few moments time. Would have printed the basic hints if program allowed it.

Nice, a good thought-provoking introduction. I only wish it had been a little longer!
[email protected] 1219 days ago
It's a good start but i was looking for more answers rather than questions because most of the time i know how i feel about a painting but i don't know exactly why is it considered to be a masterpiece ,and what makes it so great .nonetheless i enjoyed this course very much ,thank you .
[email protected] 1219 days ago
Very nice as a preliminary course of how to see Art. It certainly will enhance my perception and the pleasure in the future. My only comment is that would be nice to have your answers for all the questions made during the course. In my opinion it will help still more the learning...

I liked the overview very much! I am an Engineer very new to Art, so the introduction was detailed enough for me. As an example for new students of art, I would have liked to read answers to all the questions, even if they were interpretations or feelings from the author. It would give us examples of how an art piece could have different reactions. Art also includes other forms, like sculptures or ceramics. I would have liked to see at least five other pieces that evoked diverse thoughts and feelings.

Mi è sembrato un po'troppo breve per cercare di capire l'arte per me che sono un neofita. Avrei gradito alcune considerazioni critiche sui quadri rappresentati. Ad es. L'ultima opera inserita nel periodo contemporaneo mi ha fatto capire che l'autore ha voluto rappresentare 2 stati d'animo con un colore caldo ed uno freddo ma, siccome quello caldo prevale nelle dimensioni rispetto l'altro, egli fa vedere a chi lo osserva anche i tocchi di pennello, le sfumature, la possibilità di alternare anche con ombreggiature la parte colorata in rosso. Forse, in quel momento, l'autore voleva rappresentare il suo stato d'animo nella vita.

Excellent introductory course to art and also an excellent choice to provide a free mini-course. I would like to see a tiny bit more content regarding the paintings, perhaps some answers to the proposed answers, so newcomers can have a sense of comparison of what to think about. But t'was a great read and contemplation time, can't wait to jump to the following courses :)

W ciągu 3 lat zajęć z historii sztuki uczyłem się o artystach, nurtach i okresach w sztuce. Słuchałem lub czytałem interpretacje całego mnóstwa dzieł. I nikt przez cały ten czas nie powiedział mi, że mogę patrzeć na sztukę po swojemu. Kurs dał mi masę frajdy, a także rozpalił moją ciekawość w dziedzinie samodzielnego poznawania sztuki. Szczerze polecam.

Fantastic for new to art students, anyone with a keen interest and knowledge of art will not gain anything as its a very basic introduction to what you should feel and look for. I will happily sit with my child and go through this and recommend to friends that dont understand art from impressionism upwards

A very nice course for ones, who starts getting interested in art and in possible ways to conceive it. I think it would be great to have the course expert answers to at least some of the listed questions in the very end of the course, so that the student can have something to agree or disagree with, instead of being “on his own” with his answers. For me, I’m doing one more thing: searching for some small part of the painting or other piece of art, which looks ideally depicted to me. Then I can just keep enjoying it for some time, while gazing on the color, lines, proportions and so on:) In current painting for me it is a glass with flowers in front of the woman.

I can't thank the team behind DailyArt enough for creating this course and making it free and accessible. I was expecting some tips on how to look at art but I didn't expect I would be fully immersed in two masterpieces and feel so emotional. "Art takes time" and "trust the art" really resonated with me. I don't know how they did it, but in just a few minutes I've learned the tools on how to appreciate and truly look at art. Thank you thank you thank you.

[email protected] 1114 days ago
Overall a good introduction. I felt that it would have been more enticing to a person unfamiliar with art to have provided some interesting background and context within which to view these pieces. Especially the Manet. A description of the late 19th century world of Paris and what this painting depicts might be the very thing that would capture the viewer's imagination. I can't say the same thing about the Rothko, I just question the choice of this work. Something more representational might tempt people to consider the subject of "abstract" art as being more approachable.

Extraordinary! Have seen the Manet picture before but never as today under your guidance. Had been quite indiferent to it. Today was struck by the way the painter 'treats' his main model. Kindly & objectively. Also drinks labels are somewhat protected advertising not allowed ? Need to go back rushed it a bit. So much more to see. With Rothko. Apologies but always admired his courage ! To do his own thing so to speak. It still durprises me that I like it. What is there to like or dislike ? Oh dear am I a lost cause ? Wish me well. Thank you for your guidance.will put it to good use that is for sure. Yours, honestly & very thankful, evelyne

Excellent mini journey into the interpretation of artwork... Feelings or how one feels about the art often comes at the end of it should be your way to conclude the artists work based on all the elements you have to consider and take note of when looking, enjoying and enjoying the feeling you getting from the artwork.

Thank you for making this free course available. The only suggestion I would like to make is to redesign the website so that the painting is posted on all the blank space on the right and moves with the scroll. It would be a lot easier to read the text on the left with the painting scrolling also (still visible) making it easier to apply the lessons/exercises without having to move up and down. Besides that, it was very good. Thank you.

I found the Course useful and interesting. I must say that I remain in my adversity towards modern and / or contemporary art; with some exceptions (e.g. Picasso / Bacon). During the course you commented on two paintings: one by Manet and one by Rothko. While I think I understand what Manet wanted to express: mainly the feelings that the girl at the bar is experiencing, particularly in the relationship with the gentleman in front of her (she is tired, annoyed and bored by what the man is telling her , but she cannot put into words what she feels), staring at Rothko's painting for a long time I received no sensation and the painting conveyed nothing to me.

I like the way the course tries to encourage the curiosity and interest in seeing art more closely. I wish there was one art piece where the artist presents her opinion about her observations at the end. Apart from the little clues in brackets we are presented with what/where to look or see or feel. One demo would give that feeling that a person who knows how to see art has 'seen' these things, might shake up some things in our brains. Maybe this is it for a free course, casual and just a tiny nudge towards art. Well, I hope the paid courses are a bit more technical and 'case studyish'.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Your course has moved me from an unfocused, undefined approach to a place where i now feel that i have some tools to apply when viewing any work of art. The allusion to meditation was particularly useful because it indicates that the tools i needed were all at hand but that there was still much to learn by continued and focused practice. My take-away is that it's all very simple but none of it is easy. You've instilled in me the confidence i need to enjoy the practice. How long will it take? Oh, surely the rest of my life!

Hi, I got into art when my daughter went to University to study History of Art, she has since completed her Masters so she is now an MA. I took her to Florence, to me that s the best place for anyone to go who is thinking about art as a career. It certainly opened my eyes, I couldn't get enough of it The Ufizi opened up a whole new world to me. I know art is very subjective, I have seen all but the Rothko paintings in real life and was absolutely bowled over by them. But Matisse Cut-Outs Oh no! Infant School stuff IMHO.

Kinda turns out that I knew more about Art than I thought I did. And I guess that's part of what the course teaches you; have a little faith and confidence in yourself, because you're on the right lines - and over the course of the 5 or so short lessons, that's just the message that is given. Trust yourself, give yourself (and the artist!) a little time, open your eyes, open your mind, and maybe along the way your heart will open too!

i didn’t think i would be leaving the course with this feeling or this impression but it just really enjoyed so much. i used to think art is a personal vision of life, for example, when i was in museum i remembered thinking that you should immerse yourself into the painting to feel it more. i also used to be taking great attention to the colors without my knowing and this course made me realize a lot of things. i am really glad i have taken this course because i think it can help me be more and more attentive and open to art in general. the second masterpiece used actually convinced me that i can appreciate the view of any type of art. i am so excited to go back to museums and explore art in a new way. thanks and have a nice day, your app is amazing !

For a brief introduction, the course covered the basics well. The aspects of observation are well-defined and made easy to remember by applying them to actual works of art.

THIS COURSE

Learn how to look at art - for free.

How to look at art? That is the question.

Often when we look at an artwork we think: where should I look? What should I see? On which elements should I focus?

We doubt: why does everyone around me say that this particular masterpiece is so great?

What is worse, we doubt ourselves: I don’t like this piece. Is something wrong with me?

Let’s be honest, it is rare to have art history lessons at schools – or to have a decent amount of hours of it. We have a right to feel intimidated when nobody has taught us before how to look at art. This free course will give you courage and a few tips that will make you feel better when looking at art, regardless of whether you’ve had any art expertise before or not.

Seeing art is one thing – but there is also feeling art. We will talk about this as well. Because – as with all fruits of human creativity and genius – art is something that can be perceived both intellectually and emotionally.

We hope that this course will make you enjoy art more and make you feel comfortable with it. Even if you have enrolled in our other courses, check this one out beforehand. Enjoy!

Very helpful. I got to know some tips for what I should concern when I see paintings
[email protected] 1368 days ago
You really manage to transmit your love for art to the reader: you would make even someone who is totally uninterested in art eager to know more and to learn, let alone people like me, who already love art and always want to learn more! Thank you for this course and for encouraging the reader to ask questions and then try to answer them, the best way to learn! Looking forward to take all the other courses! <3
Errika Gerakiti 1366 days ago
Fun and interesting course. It really helps if you are not familiar with art. If you are familiar, it gives good points of view and it puts in order your thoughts on what you see.

Annika Weber 1364 days ago
The perfect way for anyone, no matter their experience, to get started at interacting with art, some helpful tips I would not have thought of myself.
[email protected] 1364 days ago
Very concise, to the point, and entertaining! Basic stuff, but indispensable as a foundation for experiencing art at a deeper level. Five stars, though there is no Ingres, which is a shame.
[email protected] 1362 days ago
The course introduces the general rules of appreciating an artwork to us. I agree with what was written in the course - there is no right or wrong way of looking at art. Our own feelings matter :)
[email protected] 1362 days ago
A charming short course on how to comfortably approach and enjoy art. This is a great level-setting exercise with practical advice and a charming writing style. Thanks so much!
[email protected] 1361 days ago
This little course pairs very well with the daily art app - I’m writing these questions down and I’ll try to answer them again and again with the art you show me each day. It’s such a comforting thought that art can be about what it means to me, not just to the artist, the critic, and/or the expert. Ty <3

Thanks a lot for this course! I would be glad to attend more free courses...

Instructions that may sound so simple actually make a huge difference in the way we can experience art. This mini course really shows how small changes in our habits of perception can make us appreciate art beyond just beauty, tackling our emotions as well.
[email protected] 1361 days ago
Good use of art examples and easy to understand. Would be nice to have your opinion of the pieces and explanation/history of them at the end.

I love this course! I do these kinds of tours with groupe where we SEE and FEEL and relate to art! You did a great job in a very short course! Bravo!
[email protected] 1360 days ago
The course was educational. I feel it could be improved by giving examples of answers at the end of each lesson, to the questions posed. I appreciate every one will have different ideas, but it would have been helpful to know what experienced art lovers read into the pictures. Am motivated enough to enrol on another course, thank you.

Super helpful and great reminders as well as great questions to ask.
[email protected] 1359 days ago
Nice little course. Brief and to the point. It will help the novice to understand part of what their seeing. One important thing I would emphasize is context when possible. Example, it’s hard to understand, say Impressionism or Abstract Impressionism for example, without the knowledge of the artist’s time frame, influences, and the events of their day.
[email protected] 1359 days ago
Too short course but really interesting and encouraging to learn more about art and how to study it.
[email protected] 1359 days ago
Overall - a useful introduction. The course could include more interactive material (audio/video). It suggests that other (paid) courses do not use any interactive materials. I guess it's intentional but I would have liked more information about the presented artwork to be revealed at some point after the exercises.
[email protected] 1359 days ago
Good first step covering the basics.
[email protected] 1359 days ago
an amazing way to understand art even if you're a novice or english isn't your first language (p.s. me encantaría obtener un diploma)

Helpful if you are new at this, but you need to have time and be patient.
[email protected] 1358 days ago
A lovely little introduction to appreciating art pieces, for complete amateurs. Perhaps it is outside the scope of this minicourse but I would have liked to hear of the writer's personal feelings on the pieces, as an example in how to express your feelings for what you are looking at, which can be difficult at times. Highly recommend for those with zero experience in art looking to start somewhere!
[email protected] 1358 days ago
Nice class, I wold make the paintings more close as geners, meaning that going from Manet to contemporart artist is kind off “the hard way” especially for begginers :) Thanks S
[email protected] 1358 days ago
It was a really helpful course, it makes you aware of all of the pieces that make an artwork whole and at the same time it helps you understand the way in which the articles of the magazine are written.

[email protected] 1357 days ago
I thought the complement of questions and suggestions for looking at art were invaluable. It was a well-paced and superbly organized introduction. I look forward to implementing these observational questions in your next courses. Thank you, Stephanie
Jin Rhee 1357 days ago
Really enjoyed this course! Sadly, as you've mentioned a few times, it's rather short. BUT: It did make me curious to try out the other courses as well :-) I've got some helpful insights from this course and I love your excitment on art!
Joanne Higinbotham 1357 days ago
It would be helpful if you could continuously view the painting while reading the text. Interesting and thought provoking

The course was really helpful. I love art and sometimes feel confused about the ways of seeing it. Thank you for your free course.
[email protected] 1356 days ago
Was what I expected it do be. Both a short introductory guided reflection on how to look at art as well as a way to gage at what level I can appreciate art. For people who don't visit museums, perhaps a helpful hand-hold (though that is personal of course), for people who are museum-savvy (which I do consider myself to be) a reassurance.

Jan Pleus 1353 days ago
I think it is a good start. It might be useful to advise people not to try and look at every single piece of art exhibited in the museum. Especially if you have the opportunity to visit this museum several times. Make a selection of the artworks you really want to see and spend time on them. An other advice could be to look at the website of the museum. Sometimes (more and more) the museum enables you to make an on line tour on the exhibition. Invest some time to prepare your visit.
[email protected] 1352 days ago
I really liked it! Objective and approachable. I'll just leave here a couple of little improvement suggestions: to enable the art pieces preview in bigger size and to offer an audio alternative to the text. Thanks!
Cem Ergünay 1352 days ago
I really loved the course. However, it would also be nice for the course tutor to put her conclusion out of the masterpieces according to the way of approach which is taught in the course. But this is not a reason to drop star of course.
[email protected] 1352 days ago
This really made me think and look deeper but I would have liked to be able to view the painting at the same time as being asked the questions I had to keep scrolling backwards and forwards
[email protected] 1352 days ago
Really great starting course! It really opens your eyes. In the end I would have liked it more, if there was some kind of examples or hints for the composition, rhythm, colors, et cetera. For the beginning I always like to see how the professionals do it, to understand how they see and look at the art.
[email protected] 1352 days ago
I loved it! So simple, yet so enlightening! As l was answering the questions and going back to the art work, I would see even more and come up with a different story about it every time. It made me curious to know the people depicted and also the artists! I want to take these questions with me every time I go to a museum! (And I wish I had them when I went to all those famous museums...). I suggest to have the art work fixed on the screen as we scroll into the questions, would that be possible? I think it would make the suggested reflexion easier. And maybe have the same questions rewritten on the Modern & Contemporary Art lesson. Again, just to make things easier. I loved the course!! I would and will recommend it to friends. (And now I wish there were someone I could share my ideas and insights from the paintings we just saw - and listen to theirs!). Thank you Daily Art for making this course available to us!!
Dana Sasu 1351 days ago
It offered a really nice and inclusive perspective on art reception.
[email protected] 1351 days ago
Very timely. This gives you the questions to ask yourself and think about. The course achieves its aims of making you look deeper. Perhaps needed a little more in the modern art section.
[email protected] 1351 days ago
Just strikingly enlightening.
Sofia Pinto 1350 days ago
A good beginner's course in how to look at art. Despite being short, it is consice and gives useful tips in how to appreciate and feel art. Many feel overwhelmed by what they do not understand and believe to be much deeper and requiring knowledge the person does not have, but with this short course, anyone can feel ready to look at art and experience it. It is a good way to start a possible second course related to the same subject, something more in depth, explaining how art experts look at art, for example. It could also be interesting to make short videos about it, to engage people while guiding them through the explanation.
[email protected] 1350 days ago
I wish there had been some description of what one might notice about the painting after seeing it. For instance, the girl's expression, sad. The reflection in the mirror of the man talking to her, but in the painting she is looking straight ahead, there is the customers reflection in the mirror with one lady highlighted. The bar lady could be sad that she isn't this woman. Colors are subdued so bargirl stands out. This way students could revisit painting. Any other possibilities could be included, like why a plate of uneaten oranges. This is a great app! Excellent. So glad I found it.

I like it as an intro to other courses. This is true of course and I've been doing this type of 'seeing the art' since always. I know this is the general course but to tempt me to continue with other I would love to see your angle at 2 paintings presented in this free course. To show what one might expect from more detailed courses.
[email protected] 1343 days ago
Thank you for the course. In fact, even though the course is short and written things are quite easy familiar, this little "manual" really helps, especially with the genre paintings. In particular, I like the "Feelings" section, an approach to imagine myself as a participant in the picture. I have already turned to this "immersion technique" several times.
Anna Maria Zinner 1343 days ago
I've never actually read or learned anything about how to look at art, so this was a good starting point!
[email protected] 1342 days ago
I enjoyed the short course and appreciated the basic intent however I would have liked to see some further exploration of the two art pieces. Perhaps a few ideas of what one "might see" or feel to get an understanding of the differences that can be garnered from a single piece.
[email protected] 1342 days ago
If you want to learn how to look at art an understand why are particular pieces popular, that's your course. Although, a little bit more about looking at modern art would be nice.
[email protected] 1341 days ago
I really enjoyed the guiding questions when looking at art, and I do feel more trust in my opinions and how I look at art. Thank you for the lovely course!

[email protected] 1341 days ago
It'd be even more intresting if in e.g. Manet's work you'd give some tips like e.g. did you see the green shoes from the girl above the crowd

Kauê Gropelo 1332 days ago
Perfect! It shows how looking at art is something that can be done by literally everyone. People usually shy away from making commentaries on the piece of art they are seeing, or sometimes they feel like it "means nothing", but there is always so much more to it. Anyone can relate to a piece of art on an emotional level, and that's what beautiful about art. There's no "right" or 'wrong", there's only "what are you thinking?". Love the course!
[email protected] 1331 days ago
Basic and simple, but so helpful. Looking at art is really like meditating :)

It is realy very short and basic course. There are some tips but I expected something more-how to interpreted art, what is important at, some important clues, one deep case study. The course is too shallow.

Surprisingly short but to the point, I thought it would be videos but to read and have time to look at the paintings was better... maybe if one could have made them bigger, to focus on them. Thank you

We are long-time art aficionados, but this course was thought-provoking; had never thought about what noises we might hear if the art work were to come to life. Excellent!
[email protected] 1293 days ago
I really love this course on how to look at art. It is a great introduction to provoke thinking and show different perspectives on seeing a painting:) It helps me to learn that art is very personal that could resonate various feelings of audiences. It also helps the artists to think from a viewer's perspective and may assist them with composing their artwork to have an impact and its unique value:)
[email protected] 1288 days ago
Definitely thought provoking and opened the door to a new way of approaching an art work. Would welcome more on abstract modern as still have a problem getting the most from such artwork!

Great questions to elicit thinking about the art.

I love it so much! Thank you. I've learned a lot from this course, which I never knew before. I thought the artists are tricking us when we loom at their artworks, but I've learned to trust in it and look what it means from the artist and mine. Thank you for giving this course for free! I've appreciated art because of this. Have a nice day and God bless!

I just took the course and found it to be a good way to reconnect with art after so many museum free months due to the COVID 19 quarantine.. While the information wasn't new it was a very helpful and satisfying reminder of the basics in how to best experience artwork. Thank you..

This course gives so many specific tips for interacting with art rather than just looking at it. It demystifies the painting so that each person can relate to it in their own unique way. I am looking forward to learning about French Impressionist paintings in the next course now!
[email protected] 1275 days ago
I love art. At museums, exhibitions, galleries, etc. I stop, look, and move on to the next piece. This short course has taught me not just to look, but to see the art. To notice details, how the piece makes me feel, to appreciate the colors, the emotion of the artist. Highly recommend this course for a brief but essential guide to appreciating, understanding and expanding the art we see.

[email protected] 1245 days ago
Good intro to someone new to viewing art. I am a bit experienced. My only suggestion is that though your point was viewing art is a personal thing, I think it would be interesting to point out examples of things the viewer may not see with just cursory look. With the Manet for example, I was fascinated when someone pointed out the reflection in the mirror - after I'd viewed it several times. Thanks!

I enjoyed the tongue in cheek tone (Aren't you glad you didn't pay for this course; put down your phone). I love the impressionists and I know this Manet, seen it many times (tho only once in person), but your questions did cause me to look at it more closely than ever before. I am now intrigued by the one patron all in white sitting amongst the other darker ones. My only suggestion for layout is that it would be good to be able to see the questions and the painting side by side. I found having to go back and forth between the two a little distracting. Othewise, bravo!

This basic course was useful as it has confirmed my intuition to pick up only a few pictures in the gallery and spend a lot of time at each of them in a "structured "way described in the course.

Very nice as a preliminary course of how to see Art. It certainly will enhance my perception and the pleasure in the future. My only comment is that would be nice to have your answers for all the questions made during the course. In my opinion it will help still more the learning...

I liked the overview very much! I am an Engineer very new to Art, so the introduction was detailed enough for me. As an example for new students of art, I would have liked to read answers to all the questions, even if they were interpretations or feelings from the author. It would give us examples of how an art piece could have different reactions. Art also includes other forms, like sculptures or ceramics. I would have liked to see at least five other pieces that evoked diverse thoughts and feelings.

Mi è sembrato un po'troppo breve per cercare di capire l'arte per me che sono un neofita. Avrei gradito alcune considerazioni critiche sui quadri rappresentati. Ad es. L'ultima opera inserita nel periodo contemporaneo mi ha fatto capire che l'autore ha voluto rappresentare 2 stati d'animo con un colore caldo ed uno freddo ma, siccome quello caldo prevale nelle dimensioni rispetto l'altro, egli fa vedere a chi lo osserva anche i tocchi di pennello, le sfumature, la possibilità di alternare anche con ombreggiature la parte colorata in rosso. Forse, in quel momento, l'autore voleva rappresentare il suo stato d'animo nella vita.
Alexandre Neves 1180 days ago
Excellent introductory course to art and also an excellent choice to provide a free mini-course. I would like to see a tiny bit more content regarding the paintings, perhaps some answers to the proposed answers, so newcomers can have a sense of comparison of what to think about. But t'was a great read and contemplation time, can't wait to jump to the following courses :)

W ciągu 3 lat zajęć z historii sztuki uczyłem się o artystach, nurtach i okresach w sztuce. Słuchałem lub czytałem interpretacje całego mnóstwa dzieł. I nikt przez cały ten czas nie powiedział mi, że mogę patrzeć na sztukę po swojemu. Kurs dał mi masę frajdy, a także rozpalił moją ciekawość w dziedzinie samodzielnego poznawania sztuki. Szczerze polecam.

A very nice course for ones, who starts getting interested in art and in possible ways to conceive it. I think it would be great to have the course expert answers to at least some of the listed questions in the very end of the course, so that the student can have something to agree or disagree with, instead of being “on his own” with his answers. For me, I’m doing one more thing: searching for some small part of the painting or other piece of art, which looks ideally depicted to me. Then I can just keep enjoying it for some time, while gazing on the color, lines, proportions and so on:) In current painting for me it is a glass with flowers in front of the woman.

I can't thank the team behind DailyArt enough for creating this course and making it free and accessible. I was expecting some tips on how to look at art but I didn't expect I would be fully immersed in two masterpieces and feel so emotional. "Art takes time" and "trust the art" really resonated with me. I don't know how they did it, but in just a few minutes I've learned the tools on how to appreciate and truly look at art. Thank you thank you thank you.

[email protected] 1114 days ago
Overall a good introduction. I felt that it would have been more enticing to a person unfamiliar with art to have provided some interesting background and context within which to view these pieces. Especially the Manet. A description of the late 19th century world of Paris and what this painting depicts might be the very thing that would capture the viewer's imagination. I can't say the same thing about the Rothko, I just question the choice of this work. Something more representational might tempt people to consider the subject of "abstract" art as being more approachable.

Extraordinary! Have seen the Manet picture before but never as today under your guidance. Had been quite indiferent to it. Today was struck by the way the painter 'treats' his main model. Kindly & objectively. Also drinks labels are somewhat protected advertising not allowed ? Need to go back rushed it a bit. So much more to see. With Rothko. Apologies but always admired his courage ! To do his own thing so to speak. It still durprises me that I like it. What is there to like or dislike ? Oh dear am I a lost cause ? Wish me well. Thank you for your guidance.will put it to good use that is for sure. Yours, honestly & very thankful, evelyne

Thank you for making this free course available. The only suggestion I would like to make is to redesign the website so that the painting is posted on all the blank space on the right and moves with the scroll. It would be a lot easier to read the text on the left with the painting scrolling also (still visible) making it easier to apply the lessons/exercises without having to move up and down. Besides that, it was very good. Thank you.

I found the Course useful and interesting. I must say that I remain in my adversity towards modern and / or contemporary art; with some exceptions (e.g. Picasso / Bacon). During the course you commented on two paintings: one by Manet and one by Rothko. While I think I understand what Manet wanted to express: mainly the feelings that the girl at the bar is experiencing, particularly in the relationship with the gentleman in front of her (she is tired, annoyed and bored by what the man is telling her , but she cannot put into words what she feels), staring at Rothko's painting for a long time I received no sensation and the painting conveyed nothing to me.

I like the way the course tries to encourage the curiosity and interest in seeing art more closely. I wish there was one art piece where the artist presents her opinion about her observations at the end. Apart from the little clues in brackets we are presented with what/where to look or see or feel. One demo would give that feeling that a person who knows how to see art has 'seen' these things, might shake up some things in our brains. Maybe this is it for a free course, casual and just a tiny nudge towards art. Well, I hope the paid courses are a bit more technical and 'case studyish'.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Your course has moved me from an unfocused, undefined approach to a place where i now feel that i have some tools to apply when viewing any work of art. The allusion to meditation was particularly useful because it indicates that the tools i needed were all at hand but that there was still much to learn by continued and focused practice. My take-away is that it's all very simple but none of it is easy. You've instilled in me the confidence i need to enjoy the practice. How long will it take? Oh, surely the rest of my life!

Hi, I got into art when my daughter went to University to study History of Art, she has since completed her Masters so she is now an MA. I took her to Florence, to me that s the best place for anyone to go who is thinking about art as a career. It certainly opened my eyes, I couldn't get enough of it The Ufizi opened up a whole new world to me. I know art is very subjective, I have seen all but the Rothko paintings in real life and was absolutely bowled over by them. But Matisse Cut-Outs Oh no! Infant School stuff IMHO.

Kinda turns out that I knew more about Art than I thought I did. And I guess that's part of what the course teaches you; have a little faith and confidence in yourself, because you're on the right lines - and over the course of the 5 or so short lessons, that's just the message that is given. Trust yourself, give yourself (and the artist!) a little time, open your eyes, open your mind, and maybe along the way your heart will open too!

i didn’t think i would be leaving the course with this feeling or this impression but it just really enjoyed so much. i used to think art is a personal vision of life, for example, when i was in museum i remembered thinking that you should immerse yourself into the painting to feel it more. i also used to be taking great attention to the colors without my knowing and this course made me realize a lot of things. i am really glad i have taken this course because i think it can help me be more and more attentive and open to art in general. the second masterpiece used actually convinced me that i can appreciate the view of any type of art. i am so excited to go back to museums and explore art in a new way. thanks and have a nice day, your app is amazing !

its a very pleasant and actually engaging course for the beginners! i dont actually perceive myself as one, but i was curious if that course could give me any new perspective on viewing art and well it did! i remembered parts that i forgot with time and after some break in engaging with art, but also got me a little more involved in actually trying to interpret field painting (i believe thats the type shown?), i usually skipped those at art exhibitions, but now i do understand them better :))

I really like the provided questions, which started my thinking-process when looking at the artwork. I would have loved to read an example of someone describing one of the artworks in the course to get a feel for it.

For a brief introduction, the course covered the basics well. The aspects of observation are well-defined and made easy to remember by applying them to actual works of art.

Erg leerzaam en verrassend. De opbouw van de vragen inspireren om het schilderij met andere ogen te bekijken.
