THIS COURSE

A very basic course about French Impressionism but just enough to feel good in the museum or at a cocktail party.

Impressionism is loved by the masses. We find impressionist artwork not only in museums and galleries, but also in calendars, reproductions and posters – everywhere. If you’re looking for a short course that will introduce you to the basic ideas of Impressionism, tell you some interesting stories and gossip about the main members of the group and, in addition, will feature the most important masterpieces for each artist mentioned, this basic Impressionism course is for you. It suits anyone who is interested in gaining basic knowledge about art, in wanting to feel good at the museum (while on a date for example), or preparing themselves for a trip to Paris, or just wanting to shine at a cocktail party (while sharing all the amazing stories learned during this course).

If you’re looking for something longer with much more information – try out our “French Impressionism Mega Course” available on the platform. After completing it, you will know absolutely everything there is to about Impressionism, and you can call yourself a hardcore Impressionism fan. But if you would like to stick with the basics – enjoy this one!

A very interesting course on Impressionism. Even if basic, it explained the most important traits of the art movement and talked about some of the most important artists. The information was easy to understand and it was written in a captivating way, so everyone can get basic knowledge about it at the end of these lessons.

Amazing course! I loved how it was set up to have each chapter dedicated to an artist instead of just going through the era chronologically.

Excellent overview. I especially appreciated the hi res images where I could enlarge them and see the brushstrokes and small details. Hope to see more courses offered.

I LOVE THIS COURSE SO MUCH THAT I DON'T WANT IT TO END:) Impressionism and post-impressionism are one of my favorite art genres. I am really grateful to learn more about the amazing artist Mary Cassatt, especially her "Little Girl in a Bule Chair". The first time when I saw the painting, it was Renior came to my mind. The vibrant blue and the wonderful composition and the lazy and relaxed vibe reminds you of a lazy Sunday afternoon. Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity to learn more insights about French Impressionism and can't wait to learn about the MEGA course.

I have long been interested in Impressionist paintings but have never taken the time to learn how this popular art movement started, and the artists involved. This course gives a great overview, with down to earth commentary and analysis of paintings everyone is familiar with, but perhaps didn't know who the artist was. Highly recommend this short course which provides instant knowledge and understanding of some of the most legendary painters of all times.

Very enjoyable. I loved the "gossipy comments" that created some personality for the artists.

Very interesting. I particularly liked the attention paid to Morisot and Cassatt. While I have read a little bit about the Impressionists before taking this course, Morisot, especially, is often mentioned more in her role as a model for other artists than as an artist in her own right, and I appreciated learning more about her own outstanding endeavors.
