Enrich yourself and your understanding of art with The Museum of Modern Art as your guide. MoMA Courses Online invite newcomers and experienced art lovers alike to learn about modern art in a contemporary way—in your home, on your schedule—from the same instructors who teach in the Museum’s classrooms and galleries. Over the course of 10 weeks, students will discover the fascinating stories and ideas behind some of the masterpieces in MoMA’s collection through a rich variety of multimedia materials, including narrated slide shows, course texts, images, and engaging videos shot on location in the Museum’s galleries. This fall, MoMA is offering two online courses:


· Materials and Techniques of Postwar Abstract Painting


A focused look at postwar abstract painting from an artist’s point of view, this course goes into the studio to reveal the materials and techniques that created some of the 20th century’s greatest masterpieces. Led by instructor Corey D’Augustine, an artist and former MoMA conservator, students learn about the art history of this period and to prepare and paint canvases based on the techniques of iconic artists of the time, from Jackson Pollock to Barnett Newman.


· Modern Art, 1880–1945


This course is an in-depth introduction to the key works and iconic figures of modern art, from its origins in Post-Impressionism to the beginnings of the New York School. Moving chronologically through the Museum’s rich collection, students explore an array of renowned and provocative objects by such artists as Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh, Constantin Brancusi, Marcel Duchamp, Henri Matisse, and Pablo Picasso, among others.




Students can choose from two class formats:


· Instructor-led
For 10 weeks, enjoy exclusive access to richly detailed videos, slide shows, audio, and readings, plus discussion forums that allow the teacher and participants to interact. 350 USD; 300 USD for educators, students, seniors, other museum staff, and members.


Courses start October 3, and registration is now open.


· Self-guided
A more independent learning experience offering the same content as the instructor-led course, without the discussion forums or teacher guidance through the materials. 200 USD; 175 USD for educators, students, seniors, other museum staff, and members
