MFA for Educators

Engage your students with the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, to illustrate themes and concepts in any discipline.

Art About Boston

This lesson is designed for children in the Frances Jacobson Early Childhood Center's Blue Room, who will be visiting the MFA on May 21, 2014.

The Blue Room has been learning about maps and how to use them, as well as Boston Landmarks. 

In this visit participants will:

- Practice using a map of the Museum/mark spots visited in the Museum with stickers

- Talk about what landmarks are and recognize some important landmarks in Boston in art examples they see in the Museum

- Create their own maps of Boston including places that are special to them (including their home, school and possibly landmarks they have learned about in the Museum/at school) using felt shapes, ribbon and buttons on canvas squares
