  • I often do presentations for my daughter's art history classes, so I was looking for a good course to get information from. I chose Picasso because they offer courses that are short enough to get through really quickly.

  • I've always wanted to have at least a basic understanding of art. My friends love exhibitions and museums, but I couldn't share this interest with them. When I decided to take an art course I accidentally stumbled upon the Picasso School in a search engine and decided to take a chance since it was inexpensive. I made the right choice: the course is compact, fascinating and teaches you with a bunch of interesting facts about artists and movements like Impressionism or Romanticism. Highly recommended to everyone.

  • From the time I graduated from art school, I knew my knowledge was fading away. I wanted to refresh it, and this course was a great option. Picasso School has found a way to provide interesting content without making it too complicated or overloaded with info -- it was fun to go through! I think this might be useful both for newbies and those who want to learn more or refresh their knowledge.
    100% worth the price!
