Testimonials

"Just wanted to let everyone know about a great resource right here in Quincy.  The Quincy Art Center offers classes for all ages in a variety of art areas.  The classes are taught by qualified staff; most have an art degree and those who don't have many years of experience.  The class sizes are small and the art center has equipment and supplies not available at any other art teaching facility in Quincy."

"My daughter's favorite movie is Mary Poppins, so when we saw a class in the summer program, it was a 'summer must do'! This particular class combined theatre (Quincy Community Theatre) and art (Quincy Art Center). The anticipation built throughout early and mid-summer. When class started, she came home each day talking non-stop about what they did. She has done art classes in the past and has found her own 'style of creativity'. Because of this, I thought I knew what to expect when we went to QCT for their skit to wrap up class....and she surprised me. Not only was she dancing and singing, her artwork was great. It was quite evident that she had taken her  time with her pieces and really put 100% into them. They had her style written all over them, but they were well done and looked amazing. This class was wonderful for her! The topic was perfect and she really came out of her shell to do the acting part and learned some wonderful things about art as well. Since then she has spent time at home using some of the techniques she learned during that class and it has been interesting to see what she comes up with! Big thanks to both organizations for a great experience! She is currently looking forward to her next class...Minecraft!"

 "I’ve always been a crafty person. Whether indulging in photography, scrapbooking, sewing, crafting home décor, or other modes of art, it has been an important part of my life for as long as I can remember. When I started having children, life changed drastically.  My ability to pursue my love for art in the ways of the past has become a memory, limited by the intermittently beautiful and ugly chaos of parenthood.

Instead of disappearing from my life, however, art’s importance in it has transformed into something different but even more profound. In many ways I can credit this to the blossoming love my 4-year-old son has for art thanks to the “Pint-Sized Picassos” class at the Quincy Art Center . A friend invited him to go to this class with her a year ago. Although he was very shy, he went outside of his comfort zone and attended with her. After the first class it was clear that he had no regrets about that choice! Ever since then, he searches for the artistic possibilities in just about everything he sees and is constantly coming up with ideas for projects. This year, both he and my 3-year-old daughter attend this class at the Art Center together and look forward with great excitement to Fridays each week when they get to go."
