and challenged both during the course and beyond. Artists of

different backgrounds, ages and skill levels work together, exchanging ideas with a common goal of learning and growing.


Our workshops are offered in 5-day-week and 3-day-weekend sessions, covering different disciplines plus high-school student options.  Our instructors are practicing artists of relevance, and many are faculty at prestigious art workshops, colleges and universities.  Their experience and enthusiasm is inspiring, and they highlight a wide range of possibilities for making.
