MFA for Educators

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

Hands-On Activity #1

Create Your Own Box

In our book, “How the Raven Stole the Sun”, the grandfather has three boxes in which he keeps the stars, moon, and sun. These boxes are decorated with traditional designs of the Tlingit culture. For our project participants will engage in a craft project in which they will decorate their own special box. Detailed instructions for educator are included and the slideshow has images of suggested materials and sample Tlingit designs to copy or draw upon for inspiration. At the end of the project participants will get to keep their creation.
