Learn the Art of Creative Reuse
The MFTA Education Center offers high-impact workshops and classes to teachers, students and the public. Held at MFTA’s Long Island City facility and in schools across NYC, these workshops focus on the Creative Reuse of everyday materials and increase student engagement by showing teachers how to integrate the arts across the curriculum. MFTA’s teaching artists model useful techniques and showcase ideas that support our Creative Reuse philosophy, inspiring teachers to include more art in their schools.
Due to COVID-19, we have transformed many of our in-person education programs into online classes, videos, and webpages. Visit our professional development page to register for our Fall 2020 live, online P-Credit / CTLE courses. Enter our newly launched MFTA Online Education Center for free lesson plans and art classes for your students. Schedule a virtual field trip to MFTA, so your class can learn about sustainability and creative reuse.
