Volunteer as a classroom aide, assisting a Visual Arts teacher in the Eliot School's School Partnership Program. We will assign you to an after-school or daytime classroom in a Boston Public School, helping to teach art to children in the range of grades K-5. Most of our partner schools are in Jamaica Plain, Roslindale, Roxbury, Dorchester. Most classes meet once a week after-school for 8-12 weeks. Maximum class size is 13. We are happy to complete paperwork for course credit.
The Eliot School offers classes and workshops in arts and fine crafts to people of all ages. A full-service wood shop, a sewing room, and an all-purpose art room make up our 1831 building in the heart of Jamaica Plain. In addition, our School Partnership Program sends art and woodworking teachers out to public and private schools throughout greater Boston.
