The Institute welcomes kids and families to participate in a mural-painting workshop inspired by the Institute’s current exhibition From Her Beacon, created by James Hobin and his students from Boston International Newcomers Academy (BINcA) and on view through May 31, 2017. BINcA is a Boston Public School that embraces new immigrant adolescent English language learners and their families.

As part of this workshop, the young artists from BINcA will discuss their mural series that celebrates the inclusiveness of America. The workshop will also feature a screening of BINcA’s short film, “Our Next Chapter,” produced by 826 Boston.

After the short discussion and brief screening, visitors can create a section of a mural or an individual piece. The process will be spontaneous, open-ended, and lots of fun – an exciting project for the beginner or expert.

This program will take place during ArtWeek Boston and is free with the cost of admission to the Institute.

Please also see our other ArtWeek offerings this season, Senator Kennedy and the Arts Tour on Saturday, April 29 and Collaboration Nation: A Collaborative Mural, happening throughout ArtWeek.

*Price for the event is free, but please check admission prices at and register via link above. All Massachusetts Kids Under 17 are Free Admission. Stay updated with all Kids and Families Events at the Institute.
