“Always look on the bright side of life,” they say. Yes, it can be difficult to see even a few positive aspects of the current global crisis, particularly if you have to spend most of your days isolated at home. But isn’t all that extra free time just a great opportunity to finally focus and explore new worlds and enrich your life? You can do just that with a series of free courses produced by the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
- Take a VIP tour of Tate Modern’s Andy Warhol show
- Study art masterpieces with Smartify
- Tour the cherry blossom festivals in Japan through VR
Five digital classes designed by the leading art institution cover contemporary art, fashion, and photography and offer a comprehensive beginner guide with corresponding readings and exercises. Each chapter features interviews with artists and designers and allows you to look closely at works from the MoMA collection and exhibitions.
It’s no surprise that it may take you from 12 to 38 hours to complete one lecture.
In the seminar called Post-War Abstract Painting you will learn about the lives and works of Willem de Kooning, Yayoi Kusama, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, and other important New York School artists while Fashion as Design will show you how society’s changing needs throughout the 20th century reflected on garments and accessories.
