Opening Doorways

to art and self-discovery for all young people

Our Fall Appeal 2021 touches upon the work we do with our youth. We believe all young people should have access to high-quality visual arts education.

Give today and inspire youth by opening doorways to craft, creativity, and self-discovery in Boston’s public schools and community centers, in our schoolhouse, Summer Program, and Teen Bridge. 


Using our hands to create and explore is a vital means to reflect and process the world around us. With the uncertainty of the past year, this connection to craft is especially important for our young people. Through the pandemic, the Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts has continued to bring the wonders of visual art to young people. With your help, we supported more than 1,000 BPS students with art class in their homes and classrooms, 140 children in our Summer Program, and 15 art-passionate teens in Teen Bridge. Thank you.

As we work step-by-step to bring back all of our classes and programming, we need your support, now more than ever. Your continued involvement improves young people’s lives by opening doors to new ways of seeing the world. Please make a donation today to bring new experiences, quality art instruction, and support to young creative voices in our community.
