The kids program is intended for ages 5–11. Classes are broken down into age appropriate groups. Classes meet once a week during the fall, winter, and spring. Students explore the Museum’s collection, then respond to what they have seen through drawing, painting, sculpture, collage, printmaking projects, and more.

Summer Art Classes at the MFA consist of five-day, online and in-person classes that focus on a specific theme. Groups of 8 - 10 children (grouped by age 5-7, 6–8, 8–10, and 9–11) discover new places and cultures influenced by the collection; and draw, paint, sculpt, collage, print, and more. Themes include Time Travelers, Kings and Queens of the MFA, Natural Wonders and more! Please note that registration for summer classes ends at 12 pm the Friday before the class is scheduled to start.

Looking for something for your child to do over during February or April vacation weeks? The MFA offers Tuesday–Friday online art classes for kids. Each morning and afternoon class focuses on a specific theme. Groups of up to 12 children (grouped by age) discover new places and cultures; virtually visit our galleries; draw, paint, sculpt, and collage at home.

Sign your child up for just the morning, just the afternoon or have them come for both sessions!
