Unleash Your Creativity When You Enroll in My Modern Met Academy

It’s never too late to learn something new—especially when it comes to exercising your creativity. Painting, drawing, and other creative pursuits can have big benefits for your overall well-being. Plus, these activities are just plain fun. It’s why we’re so excited to announce our new e-learning platform: My Modern Met Academy! Through our on-demand courses, you'll learn how to do things like ink an enchanted forest, photograph your beloved pup, and fashion yourself a fringy bag. And best of all, it's all at your own pace and can be done from anywhere in the world.

My Modern Met Academy is dedicated to making even the most challenging techniques accessible. Our expert instructors break down everything you’ll need to know about a subject or approach. Many of our courses are tailored to beginners, and so a course for something like portraiture—an art that focuses on some of the most complex subjects you can draw—are parceled into bite-sized lessons. Need to review it later? No problem. Once you've purchased a class, it’s yours forever. So if you were to ever need a refresher on a technique, you can easily rewatch the lesson.
