MFA for Educators

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

The Body: Hands

The Ancient Greeks and Romans were able to create the human form in exquisite detail with soft and malleable life like gestures and textures. We will focus on hands in these ancient masterpieces and note their gesture and meaning. Back in the classroom, create a cast of your own hand in a thoughtful gesture using an alginate mold and plaster.
