Families Creating Together runs programming throughout the year, including art workshop series for families, training for parents/caregivers to lead process-oriented art activities with their children, and visits to Boston-area arts, culture, science, and nature institutions.

Check out our monthly newsletter for listings of our events and other free/low-cost activities in accessible locations, and follow our Facebook page to get links to these events and see more details.

  • Many of our programs are run via partnerships, and may have enrollment priority for members of the partner organization, but others are open-enrollment.

  • There is always enrollment priority for children living with a disability.

  • Our programming, which we are able to offer free/low-cost because of grant/donor funding we receive as a non-profit to carry out our organizational mission, is intended to reach families with financial need.

Join us for a FREE, disability-inclusive series of art workshops for children ages 5-13 accompanied by an adult family member/guardian. We'll create clay artwork to be fired in a kiln, then glaze it with bright colors.  We'll have fun seeing what creatures and objects emerge from the clay, "telling" us what they want to be... surprises are bound to happen!  As we figure out the story of our pieces, we'll build backdrops out of mixed materials, to help us display and perform these stories to each other at the end of the series.

Note: PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED. This is not a drop-in series - please enroll if you can commit to coming to at least 3/5 sessions, barring unforeseen circumstances (followup fieldtrip is optional).
