WHAT'S OUR STORY?

Mc Graw History

The McGraw Studio began life 78 years ago as a gas station on Route 28. In 2017, when the property came up for sale, Cotuit Center for the Arts was able to purchase the site, thanks to the generosity of its donors and supporters. The Center converted the gas station into a community ceramics studio where people can learn and practice clay arts. It is our mission to make the arts accessible to all.
