MFA for Educators

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

Dinner Time!

Using their five senses, students will explore paintings and sculptures of food and describe how each would smell/taste/feel.


Art-Making Activity: Students will create their own "dinner-plate" illustrations based on what they saw in the galleries.


Follow-Up Activity: Create a still-life composition on your own kitchen table using a bowl, fruits, and veggies.
