Who created this course
Our actor
Sam Jackson
Why are lectures delivered by actors?

More often than not, specialists who are over the moon when writing their papers and doing their research do not feel enthusiastic about delivering their ideas and texts in front of a camera. This understanding influenced our decision to invite actors who feel comfortable and confident when being filmed. The expertise of our authors ensures high-quality content, whereas the professionalism of our actors buoys up its appeal to the audience.

This specialist has created the text and notes of the lectures by using recent scientific literature.

Reviews

I’m really impressed with the amount and quality of info I received with your lectures! I took the course on the history of cinema and enjoyed the whole thing, loved the way you made it. It’s nice to see people who are eager to bring knowledge to others. Art for Introvert, glad to have discovered your project!
Lilly Oulson
Finally sorted out the history of art in my head thanks to your course. Great job, guys! It's really convenient you divided lectures into modules. The speaker was nice to listen to, and I loved the deep delve into the details of each painting you talked about. For sure, it's better to learn about painting with pros than browsing through weird websites.
Samantha Lewis
Finished watching the course on cognitive psychology. I was looking for the comprehensive content that would give me a clear understanding of the subject, and perhaps better my perception of myself and improve my relationships with other people. No regrets about the money paid for the course, Art for Introvert does a great job when it comes to psychology, examples from real life, and clear explanations of what stands behind our actions, thoughts, desires and traumas. Thank you!!
Philip Mallbrow
I've just completed the course Become an Art Historian. Awesome format. The presentation of the material was fascinating, and 24 hours just flew by. I’m glad that for once I’ve spent my time meaningfully. Pulling myself together to take another course, on architecture this time.
