Keep on Smiling: A Look at Faces and Characters

This week, down at the MFA, we'll explore artwork featuring different types of smiles and peculiar facial expressions. How can we tell the the personality or feelings of a person from the composure of their face? Can we guess what each artist was hoping to convey? Why would these artists choose these subjects and particular expressions? Does the material of the object itself help inform our reading of it? All this and more on this week's homeschool tour!
