Welcome to the Essex Art Center
The Essex Art Center is a non-profit art organization with a mission to inspire and nurture the diverse artistic potential of the Greater Lawrence community through classroom exploration and gallery exhibitions. Funding from local foundations and the Massachusetts Cultural Council allows us to offer affordable classes taught by talented artists and experienced teachers. Look around and compare, our classes often cost 50% less!
The Essex Art Center's focus is to empower children by enabling them to explore their own creative resources, allowing them to recognize their self worth.
EAC offers continuous after school and evening programs for children and adults, vacation camps and adult workshops. Local artists design and teach the art classes in a wonderful variety of mediums, from ceramics, photography, drawing and painting to silk-screening, bookmaking, sculpture and metal casting. If you are an artist or teacher with an idea for a class, we would love to hear from you!
