Quincy Art Association
Incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1979 and in 1986 the QAA opened the doors at 26 High School Avenue to the public. Since then the QAA has offered classes, education forums and hosted special events for the community. Our offices, class rooms and studios are busy today offering members and visitors of all ages the opportunity to experience and enjoy the visual arts.
A Little History
In the early 1800’s the first High School was built in Quincy. The High School burned down in the early 1900’s and only the foundation survived. A new building was erected on the original foundation and it is this building that the QAA now calls home.
The image on the left depicts the first High School in Quincy. This etching was provided by the Quincy Historical Society. The image on the right depicts the current building at 26 High School Avenue. The new building was erected on the original foundation and is now the home of the Quincy Art Association.
The Quincy Art Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to the teaching of the visual arts. The QAA is partially funded by grants received from the Massachusetts Cultural Council through the Quincy Arts Council as well as private donors. We rely on these sources to support the visions of the QAA.
Our volunteers play an integral part in our success. The QAA wishes to thank the timeless efforts of our volunteers and recognize the importance of the role they play at the QAA.
