The New Art Center, 61 Washington Park in Newtonville, has been offering art classes and exhibitions for the past 31 years.

Each term, more than 80 classes are offered for students of all ages and skill levels. Everyone from novices looking to learn about art to experienced artists looking for critical feedback, and those in between, can be found in the programs offered at the New Art Center.

“I just adore this place,” said Susan Bazett, a Newton resident who has taken classes on and off for 20 years at the New Art Center. “I’m addicted to it ... the teachers are so fantastic ... I’m going to stay here until the day I die ... I love this place.”

The New Art Center presents five to six exhibitions a year in its 2,000-square-foot Main Gallery, which are free and open to the public. The Holzwasser Gallery also presents five to six exhibitions a year, showcasing the work of New Art Center faculty and students.

“We would be happy to give anyone a tour anytime,” said Ceci Mendez, director of exhibitions, who encourages residents to visit.
