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 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.

Art & Woodworking in Our Public Schools

Our art and woodworking classes reach over 1,400 children in Boston’s public schools, public housing and community centers. Add your school or find out more.

Roslindale Arts Initiative Expands to BPS Network E

We’re working with teachers, principals and parents to build great art education for all public school students in one section of Boston: Boston Public Schools Network E. We started in Roslindale, and we're growing from there. Read about our start in the JP Gazette, and see photos from past exhibitions.
