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!

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.

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!!

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.
