Free Livestreaming Programs
These 30-minute live interactive programs connect students with an MFA educator to engage in discussion and activities to encourage deeper understanding of the work of an art museum and how art connects us to the human experience, both past and present.
Individual Classroom Videoconference Programs
Coming in April
Videoconference programs are 45-minute private sessions that connect classrooms with an MFA educator for interactive exploration through close looking exercises and inquiry-based discussions of artworks from the Museum’s collection. During a videoconference program, both the presenter and participants can have video and audio connection as well as communication by chat.
Cost: $175 per classroom session.
The MFA offers workshops and training for educators throughout the year. For more information about upcoming opportunities, visit Educator Professional Development.
