Skate's Online Education

Skate's launched ONLINE ART EDUCATION - a series of comprehensive art industry courses led by leading art world academics and practitioners.

"Art is no longer just an emotional asset but also it has become an investment one. Understanding this process is really hard and the Skate's Online Art Business Course provides a perfect bridge between art, business and finance. I was really impressed by a selection of topics, as this course (part 1 and 2) covered all key aspects, and by the lecturers as they were people who know art market not only from the theory but mainly from the practice. I look forward to the part #3!" (Karolina Prawdzik, the course participant)
