The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA) Artful Healing workshops take place free of charge in group settings or bedside in patients’ rooms at regularly scheduled times. Each workshop begins with a presentation of images from the MFA’s world-renowned collection, chosen to focus on one of various themes ranging from animals to jewelry. Participants have an opportunity to “explore” the MFA and connect with artworks spanning six continents and thousands of years of history! Following the presentation and discussion, participants make art in a hands-on activity related to what they have seen. From Chinese brush painting to Styrofoam printmaking, wire sculptures, painting on canvas, sculpting with clay, and embossing foil pendants: the activities are varied and use studio-quality art materials. MFA Artful Healing instructors are trained and experienced art educators who collaborate closely with hospital staff and will adapt to any specific needs.
