Engage with the exhibition “Toshiko Takaezu: Shaping Abstraction”  and select galleries in “Stories Artists Tell: Art of the Americas, the 20th Century” in this participatory workshop. Following a brief introduction to the exhibitions, join other educators to respond to and analyze works of art in small group and individual activities. Consider a range of ways artists have innovated their own practices of abstraction while in “conversation” with other artists, long-standing cultural practices, and broad artistic movements. Activities and discussions are intended as models for engaging students with artworks in classroom settings and expanding how artistic movements are defined and represented. This is the second in a series of three participatory workshops that highlight modern and contemporary artists and artistic practices on view at the MFA. Each in the series is accompanied by MFA Art Finders digital image sets developed for K–12 audiences through a lens of inclusion.
