Children's art classes in Framingham, MA

Children's and Teen Art Classes

Spring session classes for children are now closed. Please check back in August, 2018 for the Fall session schedule.

Nurture your child’s creative curiosity and self-expression through art and art-making. In Danforth Art’s studio art classes, children will develop an understanding of the elements and principles of art, and will learn skills and techniques in drawing, painting, and sculpture using a variety of 2D and 3D materials. Students at all levels keep a portfolio of work, collecting process as well as finished pieces, to take home at the conclusion of the session. Family members are invited to an informal exhibition of student work on the last class day. All materials are provided.

ABOUT CLASS/GRADE LEVELS: We understand that children vary in their development widely from grade to grade. We offer afterschool and Saturday classes open to a grade range so parents/guardians may select which class will best align with their child’s developmental level. If you need assistance, please call the School Office at 508-620-0937 X 119 or email us at school (at) danforthart.org.

Teen Classes: Danforth Art offers studio art classes designed for high school students (Grades 9–12) who wish to explore art concepts, materials, and techniques in a creative art school environment, or those interested in creating work for college application portfolios.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to renovations taking place to the Jonathan Maynard building in 2018, Danforth Art School will be temporarily housed at 23 Salem End Road House for Spring and Fall sessions.

Other Opportunities for Teens

Motivated, responsible and energetic high school and college students may apply for Studio Assistantships - volunteer positions supporting School Vacation Week and/or Summer Arts programs. This is a valuable volunteer opportunity for young adults to gain experience in administrative, logistical and instructional tasks associated with our children’s programs at the Danforth Art School. Applications are available here: Studio Assistantship Application (PDF).
