Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts

The Eliot School inspires lifelong learning in craft and creativity for all.

We provide classes to young people in Boston's public schools and community centers. Our Teen Bridge program mentors a select group of teens through high school, and our annual Artist in Residence creates a body of public art on relevant themes.

Every year, people of all ages take classes at our historic schoolhouse in Jamaica Plain, in the center of Boston, in woodworking, sewing and yarn, fiber arts, book arts, drawing, painting, photography and other crafts and fine arts.

19th century reports applauded us for helping students “satisfy that instinctive desire of human beings to create.” Today, we still pursue the pleasures of craftsmanship and artistic creation.

We invite you to join us with hammer, thimble, camera or brush. Attend our events. Encourage a teen to apply for Teen Bridge. Enroll in a class and pursue your human desire to create.
