The MFA is here to support teachers in an ever-changing educational landscape. Here are some resources for teachers to engage students with the Museum's global collection and connect your classroom to the MFA!
Digital images of works of art in the MFA's collection can further your teaching across disciplines, whether remote or in person. Use our resources on your own or request some help in your search for images from our knowledgeable volunteer educators.
MFA Art Finders: Personal Recommendations for You
We want to make it easier for you to find digital images from the MFA collection to support your teaching and spark new connections for students. Follow the link below, describe your topic or unit of instruction, and explain how you envision integrating works of art in your instruction. An experienced volunteer educator from the MFA will reply within two weeks with suggestions of works of art for your specific lesson/unit. They may also recommend other online resources available. Note: This initiative is currently in a pilot phase and responses may take longer than usual.
These image sets are designed to make it easy to share compelling works of art with students and emphasize the teaching of fuller, inclusive histories.
