We are a visual arts center committed to bringing the community meaningful experiences in the arts through classes, exhibitions and outreach.  

The Brookline Arts Center (BAC) was founded in 1964 as a small parent cooperative for children’s art classes in the basement of Mim and Barney Berliner’s Brookline home. It was administered by volunteers and taught by a professional artist. Since 1967, the BAC has been a nonprofit educational charitable institution (501c3) serving as a community center for the visual arts for Brookline and Greater Boston. 

Our mission is as present today in all of our programs and activities as it was in our founders' basement so many years ago. With a faculty of professional working artists, rotating exhibitions and community outreach, the BAC continues to focus on providing quality visual arts classes, exhibitions and events for our students and community.  

The BAC offers programs in the visual arts for students ages 18 months-adult. Our classes are offered each season and include a series of eight or nine classes. We also offer a shortened December session and two vacation week programs in conjunction with Brookline Public Schools' schedule. Each student is encouraged to experiment with materials, explore and imagine a variety of solutions, learn from others, observe, reflect and make connections. While engaging in classes from ceramics to jewelry and sensory play to more advanced drawing and design classes, students are encouraged to relate to the world in new ways. 

With a faculty of professional working artists, the BAC is committed to providing a quality arts experience for its students and community. We are committed to providing our students and visitors, young and old, with opportunities to explore, problem-solve, create and express themselves artistically. Whether you are 2 or 92, there is an art experience and community here for you.
