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

Explore the themes and technological innovations that affected the arts during this time -- from the Catalonian Chapel (with its Byzantine influences and strong, graphic figures) to the Medieval Gallery (illustrating the use of tempura) and the the Renaissance (the illusionistic influences of oil paint).
