Humans appreciating art

I've listened to several, and they are all good, but I think in particular Episode 7 is terrific: it gives everyone an entry into art appreciation by showing different ways of looking at a piece of art, questions to ask about the work, about the artist's intent, the effects, the meaning, the techniques, and so on, even analysing that most basic of questions, "do I like the art work?"
I look forward to listening to Leah's thoughtful approach to art from every direction.

Fresh perspective

Take Heart podcast does it’s listeners an incredible service by tearing down the misconception so widely believed, if not subconsciously felt , that art is only for the elite. Indeed, the language surrounding art has developed in a way as to seem exclusive, instead of inclusive. Take Heart has shown me how to positively engage with art in a way that is meaningful. I highly recommend it !
