Course overview

Art has the power to truly transform an interior space, but how? What pieces do you select and why? In this special Art Week course, we’ll teach you how to leverage art in interior design.

The course is taught by very professional and passionate people. I enjoyed the passion of the teacher and the art consultant! It was really interesting to learn about their background.The tour of fair - meeting with artists etc was very worthwhile. The information is presented clearly and practically. It's also nice to be in a class where the students are also as interested and excited about the same material.
