Tate Online Art Course

JMW Turner - Venice: Looking across the Lagoon at Sunset (1840)The Tate has gone all hi-tech with the start of online art courses. The first of these is Artists' Techniques and Methods. The cost is £20 and the payments page isn't working yet, so don't all rush at once. For your money you'll receive a log-in code which will allow you access to:
Gaudier-Brzeska's Drawing Techniques
Collage Techniques
Turner and Watercolour
Pre-Raphaelite Composition and Symbolism
Whistler's Oil Techniques
Richard Hamilton and Mixed Media
The technical requirements aren't too demanding: PC or Mac, Internet Explorer 5 and above or Mozilla Firefox 1 and above and Flash player 8 plus; but, as the course contains a lot of animation and video, you must have a fast broadband connection or die of boredom. If anyone takes this course, please let me know how you get on. Click the title link for more information.
