While New York’s Museum of Modern Art is closed to the public right now, its virtual doors are open in the form of a few free classes from the museum.

MoMA is offering nine free classes through Coursera:

  • Fashion as Design

  • In the Studio: Postwar Abstract Paining

  • What is Contemporary Art?

  • Art & Ideas: Teaching with Themes

  • Art & Inquiry: Museum Teaching Strategies For Your Classroom

  • Seeing Through Photographs

  • Art & Activity: Interactive Strategies for Engaging with Art

  • Modern Art & Ideas

  • Sheying (taught in Chinese)

Classes take anywhere from 12 to 38 hours to complete and can be done at whatever speed you’d like.

The classes are all more theoretical than practical, in that you’re going to learn more information about how to appreciate modern art than you are on how to create it.

If you have an interest in art; however, then taking a course of two might be a nice activity while were all spending a bit more time indoors and away from museums.
