Wednesday Workshops and More

Work with other teachers and MFA educators to explore ways of enlivening the classroom using Museum objects as teaching tools. Our free Wednesday workshops typically feature a slide presentation by a curator or guest speaker, followed by conversations or guided activities in the galleries with Gallery Instructors.

This summer, K–7 teachers can participate in an in-depth learning experience with fellow educators and gain new teaching strategies in a three-day Teacher Institute focused on global learning.
