The Scituate Arts Association is a non-profit organization governed by a Board of Directors staffed by volunteers. For over 45 years, we have been an active, integral part of Scituate initiating countless programs that weave the art of life into the life of our community.
The SAA has linked with the Scituate Library Foundation and the Scituate Council on Aging by offering classes and events at community locations. We continue to make an artistic impression on teens, coordinating events with Scituate High School and awarding an annual scholarship to a deserving senior who shows a promising future in art.
When you become a member of the SAA, you join a revered society of talented individuals who share their love for art with a community rich in New England beauty and history—Scituate, Massachusetts. Additionally, many of our programs are offered free to the public and are generously supported and underwritten by local businesses as well as our membership.
