Understanding the Art

UnderstandingIn March and April is the twelfth edition of understanding art, free introductory course to art whose project started in 2013 in the Lazaro Galdiano Museum and has been widely accepted. It is aimed at unemployed under 30 trained in artistic professions (not a graduate course in Art History). It aims to directly improve the personal situation of these people through intellectual enrichment and acquisition of new skills, through direct contact with art, aesthetic experience and theoretical knowledge in the hands of professionals specializing in arts education, coordinated by one of conservative Leader Museo Amparo Lopez Redondo. Participants will be introduced on key painting, pictorial genres, classical iconography and sculpture in bronze, wood and stone, all in the unique setting of Lazarus Collection.

Understanding the Arts is a very popular course, which is why no requests of participants from previous editions are supported.
