The Contemporary Austin is now offering a bunch of online experiences to meet our need for escape, reflection, and distance learning.

The Contemporary from Home is where visitors can find art making activities, streamable performances and lectures, in-depth lesson plans, and quiet explorations of individual works of art.

The Contemporary Austin – Art School also has a selection of online classes for adults, teens, and children, including drawing, painting, ceramics, and more, taught in real time by the museum’s professional Art School faculty.

Capacity is limited to maximize interaction with instructors and classmates. Students will learn together, with additional opportunities for one-on-one time and individual feedback from instructors, just like in an in-person class.

Upon registration, students receive detailed information on how to order supplies, which can be either shipped directly or picked up locally.

In her previous life, Kristy was an uninspired realtor who was feeling a little bit bored with her day to day. So on January 1, 2010, she made a New Year’s resolution to write about one thing to do each day in her beloved city of Austin, Texas. And thus, 365 Things Austin was born.
