Find a Class
JP Porchfest is an opportunity for a variety of musicians, vocalists, choral groups, bands, and ensembles to share their music with the public. Performances take place on porches, in parks, in driveways, and on front lawns all over Jamaica Plain, and passers-by can enjoy all of them—free of charge.
The Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts will offer several visual art-making activities on the Schoolhouse grounds, all free-of-charge for participants. Quontay Turner (Emerald City Plant Shop) will lead visitors to the Blue Canopy in creating succulent gardens. Samantha Rivas (Modern Party Art) will create decorative door-hangers in the School's Red Canopy, and Verónica Ramírez Martell will lead visitors in creating miniature macramé plant hangers.
For visitors who want to make music themselves, The Eliot Schoolyard will also host Neo Gcabo during Community Hour, to lead participants in circle-singing.
JP Porchfest will occur on Saturday, August 20th, from 12-6 PM. Visitors can join in for Community Hour at the Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts Schoolyard from 3-4 PM.
