The Eliot School artistically helps The Borum

The Eliot School offers classes in crafts and fine arts to people of all ages – both at their schoolhouse in the heart of Boston and through the school partnership program, which sends teachers to classrooms throughout the city.

Founded in 1676 as a grammar school for colonial, African, and Native children, the school turned its focus to the manual arts in 1889. Since then, the school has taught craftsmanship and the pleasures of creativity. They are known for their excellent faculty, welcoming atmosphere, small class size, and the charm of their historic site in Jamaica Plain.

You can bid at our online auction to support the Sidney Borum, Jr. Health Center and join instructor Cecilia Galluccio for a new class, Burning Art & Design onto Wood. Here's the description:

With judicious use of wood-burning tools, drawings can elegantly decorate any wooden surface. In this workshop, learn from a compulsive doodler who creates stunning designs on bowls, spoons, tiles and furniture. Each student will complete a decorative tile just in time for Mothers Day. All materials will be supplied. (2 Sundays, 10 am–12:30 pm, Apr. 25–May 2)

What a great present to give to a member of your family or a friend!
