Studio Art Offerings for Adults and Children

Danforth Art School features studio art classes, workshops, and special offerings for students of all ages and levels, in a variety of media. In our supportive art community, students learn from professional artist-instructors and from their fellow students.

Please see our Student Info page for holiday closings, policies and other general information.

A note from Executive Director, Debra Petke:

"Thanks to all of you for your support over the past year! Danforth Art has a bright future as The Danforth Art Center at Framingham State University, to open in early 2019. I can assure you that Danforth Art School will remain devoted to teaching art to the community. Happily, Noelle Fournier will continue at the helm. And the Danforth Art Museum will again be open as a resource for art school faculty and students. We will have so much more to share in the coming months as we work out the details. Thank you again for sticking with us!" - Debra Petke
