Ethereal Arts began as a simple part time school in a Boy’s and Girl’s club in Hudson, MA. The dojo was only open on Saturdays but took up nearly the entire first floor and students began to show interest quickly. Unfortunately with changing management came a change for our school as well, we moved to a much smaller one day a week location in an artist studio just down the street. While this location was not right for our school it did provide us with the much-needed time to find our next location. Ethereal Arts found its new home above Masciarelli's jewelry store on Nason St. in Maynard, MA. Our new location was small but expanded to two nights a week and had a very beautiful hardwood floor and multiple windows on each wall. The Hudson school was closed as soon as the Maynard location started to take off. Two and a half years later we needed something bigger so Ethereal Arts moved to a street level storefront location at 13 Nason St. This 700 square foot facility was just barely bigger than the previous one but it marked the expansion to a full time school that was open 6 days a week. After another two and a half years the school was still growing and needed to move again. This time just across the street to a beautiful 2000 square foot facility at 12 Nason St. This new location is where we grew for the next 8 years until once again we outgrew our facility and needed to expand, and as Ethereal Arts continues to serve, it continues to grow. This lead us to our current location at 118 Great Rd. in Stow. Now with free parking as well as a shopping mall that includes a grocery store right across the street.

Feel free to come visit us and see what we have to offer you and your family. Start your journey toward Black Belt with excellence, with pride, with the best, with Ethereal Arts.
