MFA for Educators

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

Modern Abstraction

We will look at examples of modernism and abstraction. Some of the key questions we will answer are:

What are the four main types pf art? (realism, abstraction, non-objective, surreal) what are the differences between them? How can you tell?

Why did artists start making these sorts of pictures? (modernism as a reaction to and against photography; the "death of painting")
