school partnerships

Last year we were pleased to provide after-school art classes with The Henderson School and the Lee Academy in Dorchester to provide quality after-school programming in the visual arts. Every Monday and Wednesday children from 1st - 5th grades honed their skills in drawing, painting and sculpture.
