Gallery Tour Step 1: "I Don't Get Art!"

Updated: Nov 23, 2020

First Step: DON'T PANIC! Help is on its way...I am a practicing artist and have been in the field of art education for decades. After several requests, I am finally getting around to setting out a simple beginner's process for understanding art.


Have you ever been STUCK in an Art Gallery against your will? This painting by artist Edvard Munch "The Scream"* may or may not be familiar to you, but I think it perfectly expresses how YOU might be feeling about your lack of "understanding art" Look below "The Scream" to find the next of 7 steps in total. They will get you started in building up your ability and confidence in critiquing any piece of art you come across.
