Discover how artists turn a blank canvas into a finished painting or transform a block of stone into a sculpture. Explore the tools and materials that artists use and view demonstration pieces that reveal step-by-step how artists create objects like the ones surrounding you at the MFA during this weekly drop-in program. Ask questions and discuss techniques with knowledgeable staff. Look for the Artist Toolbox Cart Wednesday evenings and weekend afternoons in the galleries to discover and learn about painting, mosaics, marble sculpture, furniture design, silver, stained glass or Japanese woodblock prints. 

Free with Museum admission.
