Art Always is an art school for children, teenagers and adults located in the Brushworks Arts and Industry building in Florence, MA. The studio runs group classes, after-school workshops, private lessons, parent/child workshops, summer camps, and birthday parties out of a beautiful studio overlooking the Mill River. Its mission is to provide a fun and supportive environment where students feel safe to explore and develop their art-making skills and creative potential. Art Always hopes to provide students with the skills and support needed to communicate visually and become more confident in their abilities as artists.
