MFA for Educators

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

Where it all begins...

For our first class students will be introduced to the museum. Students will begin to understand what is in the museums collection, how these items got there, and how are they cared for. We will explore the questions of "what is a museum?" and "what is the purpose of museums?" We will get a behind the scenes look at collecting artifacts from around the world and caring for artworks that are 100's of years old. The Tour will also include a brief walk through and description of specific galleries in the museum.
