Art Appreciation





Pandora Art Education International brings together art lovers around the world to feed their passion and help them learn and grow. Our programmes help art enthusiasts understand and enjoy how looking at paintings and sculpture or indeed decorative arts can be enriching, energizing and relaxing at the same time. It’s fun, it’s a leisure activity, but it’s also educational and in many ways therapeutic. It is also a fulfilling career path for students, returners or transition to the art world.

Our art appreciation courses are for those with little prior knowledge of the art world who want to learn more and have a basis from which to explore their favourite genres. Others already know something but want to fill gaps in their knowledge.

After this, we can develop our curiosity by researching artists, their practice methods, their circles and the era which influenced their work directly or indirectly. People from different backgrounds can learn to interpret works from new perspectives such as sociology, psychology, history, commerce, literature or music.

The course includes a glimpse of the art market and its importance in the luxury industry and the world of the art collector.

The course is enriched with many supporting reference documents to keep handy to refer back to. Illustrated with images, these helpful checklists, glossaries and articles enable you to quickly understand and grasp the richness of art history and how elements fit together. This is the best foundation for having a handle on the breadth and depth of fine art which will help you move seamlessly to the next level – Art Management.

In the art appreciation course students learn why art is important in our society. They understand the structure of art history as a study and learn terms and vocabulary. Very often the terms can be off-putting or confusing, you may think you understand what they mean but are you sure? Through our narrated lessons or learning in the classroom, we explain this in an easy-to-understand way.

Artwork of The Month

Artist Candida Stater: An abstract artist working in bold acrylics medium

Candida Slater is a British abstract artist known for her vibrant and dynamic paintings.  

Candida’s work explores the interplay of colour, form, and texture.  She works in acrylic on paper and canvas.

The editor selected this artwork for its energy, vibrancy and positive mood.  It is hard to forge out a career working as an abstract painter and to be able to develop your practice to exhibit both styistic development and continued integrity in the way the media is laid down and worked.  Candida masters the art of paint handling as shown in this piece. Moreover, it achieves perfect balance and harmony, yet without being static. In fact, the work maintains an edgy feel to it, leading you in and out and aroud the shapes: A journey of passage, but one in which you can never escape – the eye is drawn back in.
