Summer Art Classes  

Each term, students from Cambridge, Boston, and surrounding communities come to take a wide array of art classes at CCAE. Regardless of age or experience, art classes offer an opportunity to flex your creative muscles and have fun! The art community at CCAE welcomes those who are new to art, looking for a hobby, exploring a new artistic venture, or trying to polish their artistic skills.  CCAE also offers conservatory-level classes in a casual setting through our Studio School. Each term students and teachers have an opportunity to display their artwork in the CCAE gallery located at 42 Brattle Street.

Figure Painting: Simplified

This figure painting course focuses on simplification of the human figure from direct observation, both in terms of color and form. Topics covered include value and temperature studies, demystifying skin tones, and basic anatomy, along with how to capture light and build form.

Paint & Drink

Looking for an elevated night of drinking and painting you don’t typically see at other locations? Join us in our painting studio for an enjoyable evening led by a professional art teacher. There’s no paint by numbers style painting here, but you will learn the basics of oil painting using a simple still life setup.

Drawing in Bars

Come sketch with us at a different Cambridge pub every week. Students will draw elements of the scene with portable mediums of their choice. Your charge is to draw from real life outside of the studio and to capture the tone, gesture, and movement around you.

Cambridge Center Studio School est. 1994

The Cambridge Center School Offers a group of coordinated course that focuses on perceptual drawing and oil painting. We are interested in helping students develop skills that enable them to record and interpret, analyze and express. We are geared to painting and drawing from life, stressing the importance of spatial relationships and careful observation.

Studio School classes are taught by Brett Xavier Gamache, Jeremy Raymond Durling, and Anya Smolnikova. Click "View Studio School Classes" above to see currently enrolling studio school art classes.
