Get Inspired by Talented Artists Who Teach at My Modern Met Academy

My Modern Met Academy Instructor Inspiration

At My Modern Met Academy, the instructors aren't just good teachers; they're also productive creatives. By diving into their social media, you can not only see what new, exciting projects they are working on but also get inside tips on the life of a professional artist. We've collected some new work from around the My Modern Met Academy instructor network to get you excited and inspired for your next creative project.

Whether you've already taken a class with these instructors or are curious to learn more about them before diving in, Instagram is a great place to start. Here, you can see how Danison Fronda, who teaches our Introduction to Handlettering class, uses his skills to produce unique decor for weddings. Or, you can learn how illustrator Anna Sokolova takes some of the lessons from her Animal Portraits in Colored Inks class to tackle a whole new surface—an egg!

If you're itching to see more work in progress, painter Dimitra Milan shares her process of creating abstract backgrounds and what she finds so freeing about it. Checking out her feed is a wonderful way to preview what you're in store for with her Introduction to Mixed Media Painting.

Khara Plicanic recently shared some cute amigurumi octopus dolls that will inspire you to enroll in her Crochet Crash Course, and photographer Belinda Richards shows how a little Photoshop magic can enhance your pet photography.
