How Mini Courses Work

Mini Courses are built for ultimate flexibility! Online and self-paced, courses are in a user-friendly site that are available on your schedule.

Mini courses take around 2 hours to complete and are divided into 10-minute learning segments that include images of artworks, interactives and stories. Segments also include key takeaways featuring art facts, and videos featuring guided exploration. Reflection activities will inspire you to apply art and culture to your life now.

Mini Courses are a catalyst for skill building, creativity and new ways of thinking about art, culture and life! You have access for one year after date of purchase.
