A friend of mine from college (a fellow art history major) passed this video along to me and I just had to share it with you guys.

You know I’m an advocate for taking subjects that are normally very boring and turning them around so that they’re interesting. Art history can definitely be one of those stuffy topics that people usually steer clear from.

What’s great about the video below is that it teaches you how to sound like you know a lot about art. You can put in a minimal amount of effort and still sound like an art snob! How cool is that?

The video is about 30 minutes long, but it’s pretty funny. It’ll also give you some basics about Pre-Raphaelites and Surrealists, not to mention some modern works as well.

Did you make it through the whole thing? What did you think? Do you have a favorite line? (Mine is the one about the three nymphs, LOL.)

    That was AWESOME! Watched the whole thing. I MUST send this to my best friend from college–a portrait artist. My favorite line? The guy who said that Henry Moore’s sculptures were worth more because you could at least melt them down. LOL!

Tell me what you think!
