The National Gallery of Victoria has been serving up an art fix you can enjoy from the comfort of home since lockdown 1.0, with a jam-packed digital program of virtual tours and events, essays, interviews and more. And now, kicking off on Monday, July 13, it's hosting an online surrealism art course, to help see your creative mind through these looming weeks of lockdown.

Dubbed 'Surrealism — 1920s to Now', the self-guided course will run over eight weeks, delivered by the NGV's expert curators and special guests through a program of videos, quizzes, readings and activities. You can sign up for full access to the intermediate-level study for just $49 (or $44 for NGV members), or go a little deeper with a premium enrolment ($134–149), which'll also get you five virtual study sessions hosted via Webex.

Students will dig right into the history of the surrealism movement, kicking off with its origins in 1920s Europe. You'll explore its defining elements and techniques, its arrival into Australia in the 1930s, and its emergence in art and film right up to today.

Learn under the likes of acclaimed art critic Dr Andrew Frost and La Trobe University lecturer in Screen Studies Dr Anna Dzenis, while exploring key NGV works like Salvador Dalí's 1946 painting Trilogy of the desert: Mirage.
