About the Eliot School

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, libraries and community centers 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. Our new Teen Bridge Program mentors a small group of Boston teens.

The school celebrated its 340th birthday in 2016. 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.


Art & Woodworking Throughout Boston

Our art and woodworking classes reach 2,000 children in Boston’s public schools, libraries, housing developments and community centers. Add your school or organization, or find out more.
