Wednesday Workshops and More

Work with other teachers and MFA educators to explore ways of enlivening the classroom using Museum objects as teaching tools.

This summer, grade 4–12 teachers can participate in an in-depth learning experience with fellow educators and gain new teaching strategies in a four-day Teacher Institute focused on American art.
