Christie’s Education, New York hosts Open House

Christie's Education
Master of Arts

Certificate: The Certificate program allows students to gain knowledge in modern art, connoisseurship and art market history without committing to a full-time degree. Along with other classes, Certificate students are enrolled in a seminar that combines classroom sessions with occasional field studies. These trips enable participants to develop basic connoisseurship skills, become familiar with the recent markets for various forms of art, and gain exposure to the larger New York art world.

Short Courses: Christie’s Education short courses are non-degree programs run in conjunction with Christie’s auction house that address topics as diverse as wine, jewelry and fine art. These courses include full-day master classes, evening lecture series, and study trips away from New York. Each class is designed to provide the participant with a unique, behind-the-scenes view of the art world.
