Programs in Public Housing

When able, the BAC partners with the Brookline Housing Authority to offer free art classes and workshops for residents of all ages.

 

Collage for 86 Dummer Street

 

Community Collage

Working with Brookline artist Evelyn Berde, the BAC offers collaborative collage workshops. During the workshops, residents make their own miniature collages to include in a larger community collage that will then be displayed in their building.

 

Art and Food

Beginning in Spring 2017, the BAC launched a pilot series of art workshops in conjunction with the Brookline Food Pantry. The workshops are offered on Thursdays from 4:00-6:00pm during pantry hours. Through this program, we hope to create an enriching art experience and environment for residents of Egmont and Trustman public housing units while they are accessing the Food Pantry's services.

 

Pop-ups

In collaboration with Women and Girls Thriving in Brookline, the BAC offers pop-up art workshops for residents. Activities range from artisan cards for the holidays to printmaking, painting and more.
