Art & Activity

by The Museum of Modern Art


There is no one way to interpret a work of art. And while it can be visually stunning and stimulating, art can also be used as a tool to develop important life skills.

This course from New York City's world-renowned Museum of Modern Art, or MoMA, focuses on the pedagogy behind art education. Led by MoMA educators Jessica Baldenhofer, Lisa Mazzola, and Stephanie Pau, the four-week video series is designed to guide instructors in developing an activities-based arts curriculum. Through a variety of tools and exercises, art instructors, museum curators, and teachers will better understand how to teach students to interact with, interpret, and discuss art.
