Those are just some off the top of my head that might tickle your fancy. That's a weird phrase. Right. Tickle your fancy sends a little invasive, but today's episode art history. I remember we used to have an art history class in grade school. I think it was called art appreciation and a really really short lady with curly hair and glasses used to come. And she would set up. Laminated posters of different paintings. And she would tell us about these different styles like pointillism and. Impressionism and all these different things. And I remember a little bit of it. And I remember learning some famous paintings and artists names and other than that like it was like fourth and fifth grade. I think I don't think I had one exposure to anything art history related and that was like a bonus program that I'm sure they had to pay this lady to come in and do this like sixty bucks or something to do that at different schools. I imagine and it was probably poorly funded, and it probably doesn't exist anymore. But it was that was my only exposure to it even in college. I don't remember any art history of any kind that was thrown at you unless you were like an art history major, but it's kind of sad because I didn't I don't know a lot of the questions that I'm asking on this episode, and I feel like I should know more than I do. But maybe you do you grew up in a different part of time or geography, and you had a lot of art history where you grew up. So that would be a fun one for you. Today's episode.
