Submit a request to the MFA Art Finders Team

We want to make it easier for you to find digital images from the MFA collection that can support your teaching and spark new directions of thought, learning, and connection for your students.

In the form below, describe your topic or unit of instruction, and explain how you envision integrating works of art.

Experienced volunteer educators from the MFA's Art Finders team, working in partnership with a cohort of K–12 educators serving as consultants to the initiative, will create a Google slide deck for you containing suggestions of up to 20 works of art for your specific lesson/unit. They may also recommend other resources at

Art Finders centers narratives, creative voices, and perspectives that museums have historically underrepresented. Requests should be sent a minimum of 6 weeks before you need the response.
