The Museum of Fine Arts Boston is home to a variety of educational programs. Their dedication to education has been demonstrated since 1876, when the museum founded the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, which was among the oldest and most distinguished. Recently, in 2016, the museum’s school integrated with Tufts University’s School of Arts and Sciences. Thus, creating the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts. This is currently the only art school affiliated with a world renowned art museum in the United States.
Aside from the university program at Tufts, the Museum of Fine Arts Boston offers various lectures, seminars, and studio art classes, which people 18 and older can participate in. Cheaper and more age-friendly classes and programs can be found within the community programs portion of the museum’s website, as the types of community programs are continuously changing.
Like the educational programs and showcased galleries, special events at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston are always changing. But, there are some events that the museum does every year. One of these events is First Fridays, where people, 21 years old and older, can tour the museum while enjoying music and cocktails on the first Friday of every month. Another event that occurs every year is the Hanukkah: The Festival of Lights, which is a free event where people can enjoy music, dance, make art, tour galleries, and celebrate Hanukkah. Hanukkah: The Festival of Lights is the perfect event for people to get into the spirit of the holiday and learn how the holiday and religion has influenced art. Like any other museum and attraction, check out the Museum of Fine Arts Boston online events calendar before visiting. You never know what kind of interesting event will be going on during the time you visit Boston!
