Fall SessionSept. 24 - Nov. 20
High School students at the Danforth Art School will be challenged to develop high level skill with materials and to communicate ideas through their artwork.
Our program for High School students focuses on providing more advanced instruction in drawing and painting, allowing each student to begin the process of developing a personal viewpoint. Instructors encourage students to explore ideas and content as well as refining skill with various media. Strategies for enhancing portfolios will also be explored.
Classes for teens are designed for students who are in or about to enter Grades 9-12.
Registration process—all registration is done using Framingham State University’s class registration portal.
