The City Studio Program is a free after-school program for Boston Public High School students during the academic year.

This program provides high school students with free portfolio development classes, access to professional art studios, and opportunities to work closely with faculty who are also professional artists. The curriculum helps students engage with different mediums through the lens of various contemporary art movements. Through individual and collaborative projects, students develop critical thinking and technical skills.

Classes are held Saturdays from 12:30-2:30 pm, typically from early October through late May/early June.

Information about the 2021-2022 City Studio Program will be available soon. Please check back for updates.

Due to the global pandemic, the City Studio program will be taught online for the duration of the 2020-2021 academic year. Additionally, art materials will be distributed to every student enrolled in the City Studio program. If you have any questions or would like to request more information, especially regarding enrollment or links to the online classroom, please email the City Studio Instructor John "Jack" Neylan at
