About

The Art Assignment is an educational video series that explores art and art history through the lens of the present. This is not the dimly-lit art history course that you napped through. This art education is brightly-lit, energizing, and most of all relevant.

We make videos that explore ideas and questions about art (How to Critique and I Could Do That) and offer explanations for why you should take a particular artist or movement or type of art seriously (The Case for Performance Art and The Case for Kanye). We also make trips around the country, visiting some of the most expected art capitals (LANYCLondon), as well as some of the least (TijuanaIndianapolis), and showing you the magnificent cultural riches each has to offer. 

We also have a tremendous back catalogue of assignment episodes, a rich resource for educators and creators of all ages and levels, which we will continue to promote and develop resources around. 

These videos take a huge amount of time and resources to create, and we have a trim but talented crew who make it all happen. Research, scriptwriting, animation, filming, editing, sound, music. We care deeply about these things, and they are costly. We are proud to partner with PBS Digital Studios to produce this show, but grants, sponsorships, and political swings are uncertain! To become a more sustainable enterprise, we're asking for your support. 

Patreon is the best way for you to directly impact our series. With your contribution, we'll be able to continue to make the show as you know it, but we'll also add more animation, make more art trips, and hire writers that will bring a greater diversity of perspectives to the show. 

You can pay whatever amount you wish every month and earn some great rewards in return. We have 8 levels of rewards you can choose from:

  • $1 - Thanks + access to Artwork-of-the-Month Patreon feed
