This NEW online ART HISTORY course is designed to give you a basic understanding of the Latin American art scene during the first half of the 20th century. In it, you will learn about the most significant artists of the region, focusing primarily on female artists whose contributions have been vastly underrated. Each lesson is recorded in high definition so you can watch, rewing and observe in detail at your own pace. Our promise is that by the end of the course not only will you begin to master an understanding of the art of the region but you will also have fallen IN LOVE with incredible artists you may not have heard of or appreciated before!

What our students have to say
Thank you so much for this evening´s session and last week´s too. Erudite, and intellectually stimulating, the content is both inspiring and accessible and the suggested readings have opened up a whole new area of study for us to dive into. Really, really enjoying it!
Thank you, Daniela, for this interesting and documented exhibition of three exceptional, avant-garde and very powerful women.
I really loved the course. I am especially grateful for the extensive reading material, Daniela's critical perspective and attentive listening.
Unlike other online courses, Amalgama offers a hands-on formative experience that significantly helps process information about a very complex subject. Its exceptional format gives a voice to all students, stimulating debate and reflection. Daniela's open-mindedness and dedication definitely facilitate the engagement of the class participants and leave in them a desire to keep investigating the subjects discussed
