Children's and Teen Art Classes

Fall session classes for children and High School students will begin registration on August 17. Classes start Monday, September 24- Saturday, November 17, 2018.

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 508-215-5115 or 508-215-5116 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.

Danforth Art School will be closed for vacation between Saturday, August 24 and Monday, September 3. We will reply to all messages when we return on Tuesday, September 4.
