Free Wednesday Workshops

Work with other teachers and MFA educators to explore ways of enlivening the classroom using Museum objects as teaching tools—and prepare for your upcoming school group visit to the MFA. Our workshops typically feature a slide presentation by a curator or guest speaker, followed by conversations in the galleries with Gallery Instructors.
