Museum of Modern Art

The Museum of Modern Art in New York isn't just for grownups - kids can enjoy the conceptual aspect of modern art, too. Modern art is a specialized mode of art that came about in the late 19th century, when the Industrial Revolution began to take place. Due to so many societal changes at the time, many different forms of modern art appeared, such as Impressionism, Cubism, Surrealism and Pop Art. Famous modern artists include Rene Lalique from the Art Deco era, Pablo Picasso from the Cubism movement, Abstract Expressionist painter Jackson Pollack and Pop Artist Andy Warhol. These artists tended to abandon conventional styles and techniques and took more abstract, experimental methods to get their vision across. Visiting the MOMA is a great way to see firsthand how non-traditional Modern artists can be in expressing themselves and sending out a message.

The MOMA Web site features aDestination Modern Art zone, where you can do fun, interactive activities while learning about famous artworks like Pablo Picasso's "Three Musicians." There's also a special site for teens, called Red Studio, in which young art enthusiasts can read interviews with artists and curators, check out podcasts and create their own art, from coming up with an original Dadaist poem to creating an interactive collage. On the general MOMA site, you are able to download museum podcasts on iTunes. Kids can also take a look at the interactive Art Safari exhibition to discover the link between animals and art.

Many websites give a greater understanding of modern art and its concepts. Look here for an explanation of different modern art movements in history. Whether you're working on a report, or just interested in more research, the University of California at Santa Barbara has an extensive list of websites for further information on modern art.
