Danforth Art School To Open in Maynard Building This Month

FRAMINGHAM – The Danforth at Framingham State University is slated to offer its first art classes in the newly renovated Maynard Building on January 22.

Community classes for children, teens and adults will be offered on
the third floor of the building, while Framingham State will begin offering some courses within its art department on the building’s first floor.

“We are thrilled to finally have a beautiful permanent space for our art classes following a few years of relocating the school,” says Noelle Fournier, the Art School Administrator. “I think our students and
families are going to be very excited.”


Meanwhile, renovations continue on the second floor of the building, which will house the Danforth Museum.

A grand reopening is being scheduled for April.

Registration for the Winter Session, which runs from January 22 to March 23, is currently open.


Classes are available to students from grades K-12, as well as adults of all abilities. Full day workshops are also available during vacation week in February for children in grades K-8.

Framingham State University merged with Danforth Art in 2018 and has been working ever since to renovate the Maynard Building to house the art school and museum, which includes The Danforth Art Permanent Collection, featuring American Art in all media from the early 19th Century to the present day, and including the Meta Vaux Warrick Fuller Special Collection.
