Whether you are a classroom or homeschool teacher, a parent or caregiver now suddenly in the position of teaching at home, a student, or a lifelong learner, this is a challenging time. Art can be a powerful catalyst for building skills and understanding a range of subjects. Teaching and learning from home is something we can all explore together, so MoMA wanted to share some resources from its collection  to get you started.

Five Top Tips Video

MoMA created this short video to help you lead a conversation around a work of art. The strategies covered in this video can be applied to any artwork or object, not just works of art in a museum’s collection. MoMA's Youtube channel has a trove of videos about MoMA’s collection, exhibitions, conservation, and  you can explore.
