The Painting Analysis Workshop idea was formed as a project to gather the followers of Sanata Başla!/Start Art! web page and other art enthusiasts under a series of meetings where interactive art discussion sessions will be held. The aim was to have live discussions of  the painting analyses accumulated in the web site within the past years and more with a group of people. I never considered to name the project as a “seminar”, “conference” or “series of talks”, since that would mean I will do all the talking and the attendees will listen. Instead I named it as “Workshops” where people will freely be able to ask questions, share what they know, comment, discuss and learn together within the same platform while I am explaining the paintings and concepts.

The first series of Workshops were held in Turkey under the name of “Sanata Başla! Resim Analizi Atölyeleri”. More than 15 Workshops were held in Turkey from 2015 to today.

Since 2018, the Workshops are conducted in English as “Start Art! Painting Analysis Workshops” in Gothenburg. The following Workshops were conducted in Gothenburg so far:

Renaissance Workshop (October 2018)
Renaissance Workshop (February-March 2019)
Baroque & Rococo Workshop (April-May 2019)
Renaissance Workshop (September-October 2019)
Baroque & Rococo Workshop (November-December 2019)
18-19th Century Art Movements Workshop (January-February 2020)
Visual Analysis Workshop (October-November 2020)
Modern Art I Workshop (March-May 2022)

The past participants have expressed their satisfaction with the content of the Workshops and have given positive feedback on the development of their skills in understanding art pieces they encounter in museums and churches. The Workshop Series will continue with new Modern Art I and II Workshops and a restart of the Renaissance Series in Autumn 2022.
