The Mosesian Arts Education and Watertown Children's Theatre programs provide a variety of affordable, educational programs for children, teens, and adults.  Our programming serves beginning as well as advanced students in fine and performing arts.  We offer a process-based approach to exploring the arts that guides students towards developing both art skills and techniques as well as life skills such as collaboration, creativity and empathy.  


We are committed to being an inclusive, welcoming space for peoples of all ability, ethnicity, economic status, sexual orientation and gender identity.  Some features of our facility and program include need based scholarships and accessible classroom/performance spaces.
