Introduction to Art Appreciation

Decoding Lascaux-Bhimbetka to Banksy, Broadway & Netflix

Human beings inherently question, reason, like or dislike — to varying degrees — every object and experience in life. Our interaction with art in paintings, architecture, gastronomy, cartoons, cinema or video games reveals a story that defines us as an individual and as socio-cultural beings. View art with a fresh perspective while parallelly developing an understanding for its latent nuances. Come, transform it into something breathtakingly powerful.
