Did I ever mention that I went to school FOREVER, partly because I thought I would earn a PhD and be the next Condoleezza Rice and party because I love to learn new things? I am a collector of information (in fact one summer as a teenager I even set out the read the entire Encyclopedia Britannica) and a life long student.
Which is why I was very excited to see that beginning February 25, 2013 you can take art classes online at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
There are several courses to choose from, Modern Art 1880-1945, Modern and Contemporary Art 1945-1989, Experimenting with Collage, and more. Each class runs between 5 and 10 weeks and you can take them self guided or instructor led. If you are interested in any of these classes, register early, they always sell out!

In addition to the MoMA, there are classes offered in person and online at several other museums, such as The Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago, where I spent many Saturdays learning about mummies, and Egyptology, The British Museum, and The Smithsonian to name just a few.
Do you take any online classes? Or adult education classes at the museums and universities in your area? I would love the hear about the classes that you taking, I may be interested in something new.
I hope you have a great day!
