NEW COMMUNITY PROGRAMMING

Art For All
ARTree held its first-ever painting class - Art for All - for special needs students and their caregivers in the Fall of 2019.
We are currently partnering with another non-profit, Include Everyone Project to offer free, 30 min. art project Zoom sessions for special needs students.

Scout Troop Leaders!
We offer private sessions for your troop. Book either a virtual or in-studio session.
"One year into my Girl Scout troop’s life going online, it’s hard to keep the girls engaged and excited about doing anything virtually. The collage class we took through ARTree gave the girls a hands-on experience in which the teacher allowed the girls to feel confident to explore a new way of making art. It made such an impact on the girls that some went on to teach this class to their siblings or continue to make collages in their free time. It was extremely easy to plan this class with ARTree and I’m very glad I did!"
--Vanessa Ivansmith, Saugus Girl Scout Troop Leader
Partnerships & Programs
In response to the changing world of education in 2020-2021, ARTree became a vendor for iLead Schools, providing virtual classes for ages 5-7 and for ages 8-12.
With 3 week blocks in drawing, acrylic painting, watercolor painting, printmaking/collage and sculpture, students attend live, online classes with 5 different teachers; each bringing their own expertise and enthusiasm.
