YouTube is a video-hosting site that spans many, many, topics. Many of these stand out for exemplary content or just popular topics- Art as a topic is no different. Though it isn’t described as a main “genre” of the website, it still has plenty of channels and such dedicated to it.
“Vamos Art” is a personal favorite of many- it combines an uncommon, 3D art style with a nice use of things like time lapse and even step-by-step tutorials if you wish for one. The channel even provides insight into the history of various arts in different periods of time. Many people also enjoy the number of optical illusions you may be shown in the videos.
The channel known as “Tate” is also a very popular and well-made one. It doesn’t only post videos about art or such, it commonly gives you an insight into the industry with interviews with various artists of different skills- even musicians! This can be quite helpful to anyone aspiring to become an artist of any caliber. Even if you don’t wish to be one, it’s always nice to know what inspired an artist to create the works that they did. This channel is second to none for interviews and insights into art itself- painting, sculpture or otherwise.
“Art 21” is a nonprofit organization highlighting and supporting art in the twenty-first century. They feature many kinds of art and artists, going as far to show videos and support of various new artists working in New York City. With everything from sculpture to contemporary art, this channel is more focused on showing and supporting art than tutorials and such.
Next is a channel from the Guggenheim Museum, named simply “Guggenheim“. This channel is a host to everything from music, filmmaking clips, definitions of common artistic usages and terms, as well as moments with bands. This is obviously a very diverse channel, one that everyone should at least take a look at.
Last on my list (Not ranked as worst to the best, the decisions for that depend on the likes, dislikes and interests of yourself.) is a channel dubbed “Gagosian Gallery“. This channel showcases both modern and contemporary art from many, many famous artists. In reality, the Gagosian Gallery is a large chain of art galleries- over 10 exist world wide.
