Finished watching the course on art. I wanted to get some structured information on this topic for a long time. This is the best course I have ever come across! I have been searching for high-quality materials on art history for a very long time, but this course completely sorted all of my knowledge out. Thank you very much!

I've completed the course "Become an expert in the history of art". Amazing format. The presentation of the material was so fascinating that 24 hours just got away. I thank the lecture hall for this opportunity to have used the time constructively, having watched such interesting and enjoyable lectures. They actually provide a lot of information, which is varied and new, but you don’t feel tired afterwards and there is no confusion in the head. I now have a desire to definitely listen to wonderful courses on fashion and architecture!
