A Message About Online Classes

With the ever-changing nature of COVID-19, CCAE staff and instructors have been working tirelessly to ensure that we are still able to offer high quality adult education classes. As such, we have transitioned many classes online.

Now, more than ever, being able to come together, if even online, is essential for maintaining a healthy, connected community .

Our hours of operation are weekdays from 9am - 5pm. Registrations can still be made online at any time or you can contact us at 617-547-6789 ext. 1 and during this time.

We appreciate your understanding and continued support.

This is the fifth annual Recent Works exhibit, and the first virtual one! If this exhibit inspires you, check out our online visual arts classes this spring.
