Coloring outside the lines in Dorchester since 1998 !


Dot Art’s mission is to create exemplary art-making opportunities for children ages three to ten in Dorchester.


Dot Art provides a safe, fun, and welcoming space for children to explore new possibilities in art. Our experienced teachers, artists, and volunteers inspire children to experiment and help to establish and foster a love for creating.

Dot Art offers:

  • art programming for schools and after-school programs - our school partnerships reach nearly 500 children per week
  • classes for children during school vacations and Saturdays at the Dot Art Studios
  • art-making opportunities at numerous community events

Our community outreach and involvement efforts often produce of works of art for the whole community to witness and experience, continuing the wide-ranging impact Dot Art has had in the Dorchester community for nearly 20 years.
