PANDORA ART EDUCATION COURSES
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.
“Monte Carlo Diva” luxury Scarf from The Diva Collection by Lakshimi, Printed 100% silk
Artwork of The Month
Louise Lakshimi Callaghan is a self-taught artist from Wales in the UK. She has practiced for many years as a contemporary artist focusing on the ethereal and other worldly. Fueled by a passion for life. Lakshimi’s art aims to restore and maintain a connection to the joy of being alive and sometimes to the trauma of being human. It assists to reconnect her viewers with the free flow with all that is. Creating also enables her to feel a sense of freedom, retain vitality, wholeness and connectedness. The spirituality of Lakshimi’s creations is what informs their vibrancy and timelessness.
Her latest work showcases her art transformed into a series of luxury silk scarves bursting with opulence and exoticism. The timeless limited edition prints present an eclectic mix of avant guard, pink punk and contemporary abstraction. By bringing forth a contrast of elegance and opulence combined with a young and dynamic urban street vibe the artist has choreographed a series of refreshing and sought after designs that any aspiring fashionista would simply die to own.
The Diva Collection by Lakshimi has 8 pieces in multiple colourways and two other limited edition series also exist.
The works are also available as prints to order presented on quality substrates and individually signed along with a certificate.
