Boston Museum of Fine Arts

Mason took an art class at the MFA.  It was great!  They walked around and looked at landscapes, talked about what is in the foreground, middle ground and background of each painting, then finished with painting their own landscape on a piece of canvas.  While we waited for the class we went exploring in the "Ancient" exhibit for awhile by ourselves.  Mason is learning about ancient civilization in his Story of the World Co-Op.
