Free Andy Warhol Online Course

  • 1 min read

Are you looking for a new challenge for the New Year? Have you vowed to broaden your artistic knowledge? A new online course explores Andy Warhol’s creative innovations, thematic concerns and relationships to major artistic movements of the 20th century. The free online course is a first of its kind…

The course has been developed as part of the ARTIST ROOMS research partnership between the University of Edinburgh, Tate, and the National Galleries of Scotland. This kind of course (known as Massive Open Online Course) is offered by many American universities, but this is a first to be dedicated to a single artist and the first such course to be developed in a gallery/university partnership in the UK. It is open to all and encourages large-scale interactive participation.

The course is delivered in five thematic blocks of material exploring on Warhol’s life, career, and work. The five themes are; celebrity, sex, money, death and time. Students who successfully complete the class will receive a Statement of Accomplishment signed by the course instructor, which is not a formal qualification but would be useful to demonstrate prior learning and interest in the subject. This is an amazing opportunity to learn about the king of Pop Art and a true 20th century icon for FREE!
