During the pandemic, MoMA is offering a range of free art classes covering subjects like Contemporary Art, Fashion as Design, and Photography.
The Museum of Modern Art in New York had to close its doors in March because of the COVID-19 pandemic. But for the institution, this could not have been the end of its role. The museum is now offering free online art classes and the opportunity to access its vast collection virtually.
There are five courses available, giving participants a chance to learn more about contemporary art, fashion as design, photography and the museum itself.
“What is Contemporary Art?”
In the “What is Contemporary Art?” course, you will have the opportunity to analyze 70 works made between 1980 and the present day.
“Modern Art and Ideas” will focus on how an artist works, how they get inspired and how they respond to sociocultural issues.
The third course, “In the Studio: Post-War Abstract Painting” will take a deep look at the lives and work of seven artists from the New York School, including Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock, and Agnes Martin.
Fashion & Photography
“Fashion as Design” and “Seeing Through Photography” are the two other courses in the free curriculum. During these sessions, designers, photographs, historians and experts will discuss the trends and work from the last decades.
The participants will “hear directly from artists and designers”, and be given the opportunity to “join a community of learners unlike any other”.
Each course takes between 16-27 hours to complete. The teaching is directed at beginners and comes with reading and exercises. By completing a course, you will gain the skills to better understand contemporary art and share the passion with others.
