Cambridge Center for Adult Education's art classes offer a welcoming community for students from all backgrounds. CCAE's 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. Click on the topics above for currently enrolling art classes.

Propose a Small Group Show!

CCAE is looking for students to propose and participate in Small Group Shows. Small group shows are small groups (3-8 CCAE artists) who would like to display their work together under a specific shared vision. It is a chance for students to connect with other artists, display their own work, and participate in a larger artist community at CCAE and in Cambridge at large. To find other CCAE Artists who are interested, talk to the other students and teachers in  your classes, come by our quarterly Art Exhibit Opening Receptions, or stop by 42 Brattle to view work currently on display.

Cambridge Center Studio School

Since 1994, the Cambridge Center School offers a group of coordinated intensive courses that focus on perceptual drawing and oil painting. Students develop skills that enable them to record and interpret, analyze and express. Our Studio School classes 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 and Jeremy Durling.
