Red Studio: A Site for Teens was developed by The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in collaboration with high school students. It explores modern art, artists, and what goes on behind the scenes at a museum and features interviews with artists, interactive youDESIGN and REMIX activities, and talk back bulletin board.
Online Art Activities
Red Studio’s catalog of activities includes Fauxtogram, an online activity inspired by the process of making images on photographic paper without a camera. Select from a menu of foods, everyday items, games, tools, and other odds and ends to design an image, and then set an exposure. Students shouldn’t miss Man Ray and his Rayographs.
Other activities include:
- Gods, Griffins, and Cowboy Boots Six teens interview artist Shahsia Skindar.
- REMIX, lets students create collages. An introduction shows them how to set a background and add shapes, adjust shape size and background and shape opacity, and save. The introduction includes examples of collage.
- An Activities Archive maintains selected past features.
Artists, Podcasts, Interviews
MoMA Teen Podcasts examine artists and a work of art, such as Pablo Picasso’s “Studio with Plaster Head” (1925).
Talk to Me This feaure is with artist Olafur Eliasson who works with light and water and other natural materials.
