MoMA Is Giving New Yorkers Access To Free Art Courses & ‘Virtual Views’ Of Its Galleries

You can’t go to the museum, but the museum can come to you!

The Museum of Modern Art (better known as MoMA) has loads of online offerings, so you can still get your fill of art from your house while they are closed to the public.

And what better time than the present to learn something new? If you always wanted to take art classes but never had the time, their free options on Corsera are the perfect option.

Choose from classes like “Fashion as Design,” “In the Studio: Postwar Abstract Painting,” “What is Contemporary Art?” and more. You can even read the syllabus for each, which includes video lessons, readings, and even quizzes! Now’s the perfect time to “major in art.”

They are also starting a new “Virtual Views” series next Thursday, April 9. It will kick off with the latest in their “How to See” series about Home Movies, inspired by the exhibition Private Lives, Public Spaces.

Here’s how they describe the new series:

“You’ll find exclusive access to Donald Judd’s revolutionary sculptures, Dorothea Lange’s impactful photographs, intimate home movies, and more. Every weekend, we’ll take you inside an exhibition or a favorite artwork from the collection through video stories and curator Q&As, as well as audio playlists and feature articles.”

And here’s the full lineup for April:
