Proposals Invited for Classes in Art or Crafts at Eliot School

In Calls to Artists, Classes on March 10, 2010 at 10:54 am

Jessica Burko asked us to pass along this info from the Eliot School.

Teaching at the Eliot School connects you to it’s rich history beginning in 1676 when the school was first established for children of varied ethnic backgrounds, a rarity at the time. In 1889, the school turned its focus to the arts as a supplement to Boston’s public school offerings and as an antidote to the decrease of “manual arts traditionally practiced at home” in modern cities. Training for schoolteachers followed, then instruction for adults, then children’s after-school classes. At the time, it was said that people attended classes at the Eliot “to satisfy that instinctive desire of human beings to create,” and that is much of the same instinct that drives students to the school today.
The Eliot School is now accepting proposals for fine art and applied craft classes geared towards children, teens, and adults for the Fall/Winter Semester: September 2010 through March 2011.
