Excellent. The course was very educational, extremely well put together and Corey´s instruction was excellent. One really needed to put time and effort into it but is worth every second of time spend.
Beyond my expectations! Encouraged by in studio where I discovered I could be successful experimenting with all the different artists. The knowledge, insight, and fascinating experience was joyous!

This course is EXCELLENT. I have been following many tutorials but this one is the unique: show you in a dry ad efficace way different painting techniques combine with the history of the painters who invented it. More you have a critics presentation of the most interesting abstract paintings of the century. Thanks for sharing your studies and your experiences with us.

I enjoyed attending your course and I’m sure I learned a lot about many things. I am especially pleased with Mr. Corey d 'Augustine because everything is much clearer after his lectures. I would love to be live at his lectures. Mr. Corey'd Augustine teaches and explains excellently.
I hope there will be more similar painting courses.

A comprehensive and fascinating investigation of Postwar Abstract Painting. Features seven key artists who work using a range of techniques and represents the diversity of these artists. Presenters are very engaging, interesting, informative and enjoyable to watch. I really enjoyed the demonstrations and explanations of the artists' methods by Corey D'Augustine.
This course has provided the opportunity of knowing better each renown artists from Abstract Expressionism in United States. I've learnt in depth and discovered other personalities I've ever seen throughout my degree in Art History. The contents are actually instructive and teaching. Hope to enroll in more courses like that in a soon future. Congratulations!

I have taken and completed a couple of classes and others are in process. That said, this was my very favorite course that I looked forward to each day. I would like to take it again.
Cory is an amazing instructor and very inspiring. I recommend this course to everyone I know and it is especially good for frustrated artists that simply need a jump start.
By Claudia D•
Course is outstanding. Very well presented and demonstrated by the instructor, pacing is excellent (a little video, a little reading, a quiz) and hugely informative. Time spent was well worth it. Can't wait to travel to NY and see the paintings in person. Would recommend this course to anyone interested in the subject. I took the non-painting option.

I enjoyed taking this course. I didn't know a lot about abstract art before going into it, and it was full of great learning. Getting to try the techniques too was a lot of fun and gave me an appreciation for how hard it is to make something look so easy.
Corey D'Augustine is a great teacher. He has a great style, and makes everything feel approachable.

The course of Postwar Abstract Painting offers in depth knowledge about the New York School artists, their techniques, material understanding through videos, and articles from the artists. I thought I knew these seven New York School artists but this course has further my knowledge about the time period and meaning of the art created by these artists.

Provided that you like abstract painting, this course will give you insights in abstract painting techniques and work of art that you can use yourself, while making or enjoying art. The demos are great, and never give you the feeling that you cannot do such a thing (but if you do the studio exercises, you'll discover that it's not that easy...).
By Sally M•
I learnt a great deal from this course and thoroughly enjoyed it. These artists have always impressed me but now with more knowledge of their techniques and processes I feel armed to use it in my own work. I have already recommended the course to a friend and hope they will join up. Thank you for a very well run and interesting time.
By Marjorie B•
This course provided an excellent overview of the selected artists, unique explanations of the artwork by museum professionals, and great studio assignments to paint along with. I had so much fun learning and painting! If you are looking for increased art appreciation or some inspiration in the studio, I would highly recommend this course!
By Laura A•
I enjoyed and learned very much in this past weeks. The design of the course is very creative in the way one artist is revised not jus by the art pieces but, the history, and individual technique involved in the art making process. The reading, videos and different resources are fantastic. Thanks a lot for offering such a wonderful course.
By Fay v B•
I very much enjoyed this course, as art history is combined with making art yourself. Showing which techniques the artists used, helps to understand their process. Furthermore, the teacher explains very enthusiastically and the information you are given is really interesting and gives you a deeper insight into the artists and their process.
By Jane W•
I learned much about artists in the postwar period. I also learned to appreciate abstract painting, and I was fascinated to watch the studio lessons. I did not participate, but still enjoyed watching the process. It reminded me of the days in college, back in the 70s, when I would hang out at my sister's studio and watch her as she worked.
By Nora A•
I thoroughly enjoyed taking this course. I was only familiar with one artist, Jackson Pollack. came to admire all the artists, as they faced various "life" challenges, and put their energy, pain, and souls into their paintings They overcame so mucThe course was very informative and helped me learn about various painting techniques,
By Nora R•
Excellent course any way you see it. I learnt a lot fantastically motivated by instructor Corey DAugustine and the course contents. High-quality information. I also enjoyed In the Studio painting exercise very much, had a lot of fun trying to paint like the artists seen. Thank you so much to MoMA for making this course possible
By Helen C•
A wonderful course. Corey D’Augustine is a captivating teacher whether hands-on in the studio or discussing artworks in the gallery. I learned so much, not just about art but about the artists and social history of the time that shaped their self-expression. It also illuminated my own motivation for making art. Highly recommend.
By Anita g•

By Steven R•
Corey D Augustine an excellent teacher especially considering my minimal layperson knxwledge. Made it very interesting by talking about the Different Strokes each artist takes and why they do it as well as the different mixes of paint and the reasons for it. Could go on and on.
Definitely will be taking more courses from MoMA
By Cassandra C•
Hands-down my favorite course on Coursera! The instructor was great, the videos engaging, the discussions relevant, and the studio prompts amazing. I loved learning by doing in such a comprehensive way- reading, watching videos, painting, writing, sharing.... very fun and very educational!! Highly recommend for art lovers.
By Baruch M•
It was a very important course for me, emphasizing knowledge and experience. Learning in deep these artists, from the abstract expressionism movement, in their special journey of each one of them, is fascinating in their special part and role in the history of modern art. They are so different and alike in the same time.
By Alberto A•
I would like to know about this course some years ago, because it was really what I needed.
Excellent explanations about technics of painting. Seven different artists!
Excellent videos of curators.
Good documents to read.
Unhappy the platform online is not quite friendly sometimes failing or giving wrong messages.
By Márcia V d M•
The course was so pleasant and so instructive!! I want to thank you all for turning this course into a wonderful experience! And I hope to meet again the instructor Corey D’Augustine, who had turned the classes very simple, very easy to understand! Please, give us another course about other movements and its artists!!!
By Sanchari D•
This course is a fantastic foundation towards understanding the process and the philosophy of Abstract Expressionism in depth in only 8 weeks. Precisely structured, so that students won't feel overwhelmed with all the informations and articles. Course instructor Core D'Augustine is just amazing , I'm a big fan of him.
