Eliot School of Fine and Applied Arts

Eliot School of Fine and  Applied Arts

The Eliot School offers training, classes and workshops in crafts and fine arts – woodworking, sewing & fiber arts, painting, drawing, photography, green crafts and other crafts of all kinds. We serve both children and adults at our schoolhouse in the heart of Boston, and our School Partnership Program sends teachers to classrooms throughout the city.

Founded in 1676 as a grammar school, we turned our focus in the late 19th century to the manual arts. Since then, we have taught craftsmanship and the pleasures of creativity. We are known 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.
