Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts

Inspiring lifelong learning in craftsmanship and creativity, classes for all ages year-round.

The Eliot School inspires lifelong learning in craftsmanship and creativity for all. We offer classes and workshops in woodworking, sewing and fiber arts, painting, drawing, photography and other crafts. Our School Partnership Program sends teachers to classrooms throughout the city, and we teach both adults and children at our schoolhouse in the heart of Boston. Children’s art classes take place after school, on weekends, and in our Summer Program for Children. Founded in 1676 as a grammar school, we turned our focus in the late 19th century to the manual arts. We are known today for our excellent faculty, welcoming atmosphere, small class size, and the charm of our historic site. Located in Boston’s Jamaica Plain neighborhood, we are easily accessible by car and by T, with plenty of public parking nearby.nnMailing Address: PO Box 300351, Boston, MA 02130nnSCHOOLHOUSE & REGISTRAR: 24 Eliot Street, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130nnSCHOOL PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM & Additional Administration: 253 Amory Street, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130
