Arts and crafts workshops

Looking for a free, fun activity to enjoy with the kids? Join us this summer for one of our arts and crafts workshops hosted by a local artist in various parks throughout the City of Boston.

Our arts and crafts workshops are led by local artists. They're held Tuesday through Friday in July and August from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. These workshops encourage kids to explore their creativity through projects like mask making, crayon art, watercolor and much more. Supplies are provided, but you'll need to bring your creativity! Our workshops are sponsored by Highland Partners Charitable Fund, with additional support from the BCYF Summer Grant program.

This series is completely free and open to Boston residents. These workshops will take place in various parks throughout the City of Boston. Registration is encouraged so we know how many supplies to bring (pre-registration is required for groups of 8 or more). This series is also weather-dependent. Check our social media pages for updated weather info regarding this series.
