Our e-learning platform My Modern Met Academy has been around for over a year. In that time, we’ve launched many online classes covering art, photography, and crafts. You can start anywhere in your My Modern Met Academy journey, but if you’re wanting some suggestions, take them from our students. Here, we’re sharing some of our best-selling classes on our platform.
Drawing makes up some of our most popular courses and we have a variety to choose from. Learn how to draw architecture from artist Demi Lang in her course Architectural Illustration for Everyone: Draw Buildings in Ink and Colored Pencil. Alternatively, understand how to break down one of the most complex subjects—the human face—when you enroll in Portrait Drawing for Beginners: Learn How to Draw Anyone You’d Like with Melissa De Nobrega.
Our popular painting classes are a nod toward abstraction. Artist Dimitra Milan shows how to combine an abstract, free-flowing background with a naturalistic drawing in Abstract Realism: Introduction to Mixed Media Painting. It’s an intermediate-level class that assumes you have some knowledge of how to draw. If you’re looking for something where sketching isn’t as involved, give Nitika Ale’s class a try. Dream Your Own Abstract Acrylic Floral Paintings share expressive techniques that you can use to create bouquets on canvas.
