MFA for Educators

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

Birds In Art

Each piece of art in this gallery contains images of birds. This gallery integrates a first grade science unit on birds with American artwork from the Museum of Fine Arts. Students will observe how the birds were created and stylized in each of the art pieces. These observations along with their scientific knowledge of birds will be an inspiration for creating a bird tile. The technique used to create these bird tiles will be based on a similar process used by the Saturday Evening Girls when decorating their ceramic tiles.
