Summer Programs

Summer Fun in the Arts 2022

This Summer we hope, like so many of you, for a return to some normalcy. To that end, we have scheduled a full-roster of in-person creative classes for students of all ages. Plus, students can expect to spend lots of time outdoors enjoying the fresh air and time with friends. Please register early for the best selection and to take advantage of our summer early registration discount which ends March 31.

At HCA we believe that an arts education is part of a well-rounded education. Our artist-instructors are here not only to teach, but to help students build skills in teamwork, problem solving, and creative thinking. Our students come from all over the MetroWest region to enjoy the many outstanding programs we have to offer in Ceramics, Dance, Movie-Making, Music, Theater, and Visual Art.

Scholarship Opportunities

The Hopkinton Center for the Arts believes the arts are for everyone and thanks to the generosity of The Sandra Delbridge Scholarship Fund and individual donations to our scholarship fund we are able to assist children, teens, and adults who might not otherwise be able to afford classes.
