Summer Arts at Danforth Art School


Join us this summer at The Danforth Art School at Framingham State University. Our theme this year is “What’s the Story?”.  We will be making art from stories and telling stories about art. Children will enjoy experimenting with a wide variety of materials, creating sculptures, drawings, paintings, and other artwork as they explore the relationship between pictures and words, images and stories.

Students in Grades K-5 will be inspired by clever weekly themes, such as “It’s a Mystery” and “Intergalactic,” learning about color, value, shape, texture and line- the foundations of art-and will go home with a portfolio of amazing artwork.

Students in Grades 6-8 will enjoy classes designed around specific artistic materials and methods, developing skills and concepts- and will also go home with an impressive portfolio.

We also offer a fantastic Summer Arts program for Teens in Grades 9-12.
