MFA for Educators

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

Gardner Pilot Academy 2nd Grade MFA Visit

During this visit to the MFA, students will participate in a tour that highlights some of the pieces that they have seen in previous sessions at school, and serves as a jumping off point to talk about what it means for artists to present their work in an exhibition/show, just like the class will be doing at GPA the following week. During the tour, students will view one example of an illustrated book on view in the Museum to think about how books (and their scrapbooks) can be and are art too. After the tour, the group will go into a studio space to complete their scrapbooks from the program by decorating the covers and adding illustrations to entries (if desired).
