Artful Adventures offers specially designed in-person home school classes for kids and teens, ages 6 to 18, on Thursday and Friday mornings. Taught by trained Museum educators, these age-appropriate programs last two hours, include a pre-tour activity, gallery exploration, and a related art lesson. All materials are provided.

Each four-session ticket package must be purchased in advance, and is only available for sale online until noon on the Monday before the first class. Tickets include general admission to the MFA for the student and one accompanying grown-up.
