The Painting Analysis Workshops are designed to teach basics of painting analysis to art enthusiasts. The Workshops target absolute beginners to art who have no background knowledge in art history but just pure interest in learning.

The below are the upcoming workshops offered by Start Art! in Gothenburg.


The Visual Analysis Workshop covers the art periods and movements from 15th to 19th Century. The Workshop will teach the participants how to look at paintings from those periods and movements, analyse the visual and formal qualities and distinguish those periods from each other. The basics of each period/movement will be covered and Comparative Analysis approach will also be followed on different types of genres: portraits, landscapes, history painting, etc. The target of the Workshop is to enable the participants to develop skills to recognize periods/movements of typical paintings from 1400s to 1900s.
