United South End Settlements provides art classes for youth ages 3-18. Course range from visual art classes like creative arts for preschoolers to gym classes, Spanish, and creative movement and drama. Subsidized slots are available; please inquire.
Children’s classes are held at the Children’s Art Centre, 36 Rutland Street or the South End House, 48 Rutland Street in Boston.
United South End Settlements was incorporated in its current form in 1960, following the merger of four of Boston's first settlement houses, South End House, Hale House, Lincoln House, the original Harriet Tubman House, and the Children's Art Centre.
USES' mission is to act as a catalyst, bringing together resources of participants, the community, and the agency to promote the stabilization and well-being of individuals and groups at risk within the community, nurture personal growth and development, build a sense of community, and foster an environment where all can thrive.
