Frequently Asked Questions:

How can I get involved?
We are always looking for people to volunteer their time in the studio. Call us or stop by to get more information and pick up a volunteer application. 

We are also now offering adult classes in painting, clay, and digital art at our teen/adult center, The Hive. If you are interested, check out our adult classes here.

What facilities and supplies does Art Haven have?
Art Haven has 5 pottery wheels, a low-fire kiln, a variety of painting, drawing, and printmaking supplies, and a fully functioning darkroom.

Do I need to sign up ahead of time?
Some of our classes require preregistration, but many are open to walk-ins. Those requiring registration are darkroom photography, youth pottery, and adult open darkroom time. All other classes are open to walk-ins unless the class is full. To be safe, you can always call ahead to check.

If I can't afford classes, what do I do?
Because of the help of our donors, we are able to offer scholarships to youth from low-income families. To see if a child qualifies for reduced class fees, a parent or guardian must print and fill out a registration form online, or stop by to pick up a form. Once we review the application, we will contact you to let you know.

Where is Art Haven located?
The studio is located at 180B Main Street in Gloucester, MA, directly across from the police station.
