The Boston Museum School is a four-year college located in Boston, Massachusetts, specializing in the study of fine and applied arts. It is one of the few schools in the United States with a focus on art education.
The Boston Museum School was founded in 1876 as a school for artists and artisans. It was originally located in the basement of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. In its early years, the school offered classes in drawing, painting, sculpture, and design.
In the early 20th century, the school began to offer more traditional academic courses, such as art history and literature. It also began to offer courses in education, so that its students could become teachers of art.
Today, the Boston Museum School offers a wide range of courses, from studio art to art history to education. It also has a strong focus on community service and outreach. Its graduates have gone on to become successful artists, teachers, and museum professionals.
