“Learning Through Art” at Home

Looking for some inspiration at home when school is closed? #MFAHatHome is here for you!

Below you’ll find online materials to use now, whether you are a parent who wants new ways to think about art with your kids, or perhaps you’re teaching school remotely and need fresh ideas.

These materials are designed to be used with the MFAH art collections. Find a work of art via the Learning Through Art online resource, and try your hand at sketching, poetry, science, and more.

Each activity offers fun for the grades and ages indicated. Feel free to explore them all. Many can be modified for other ages, too.
