Come home to your inner artist in a supportive environment as you learn to hone and trust your natural creativity. For over 40 years, our nationally-recognized programs have been a haven for those seeking a place to express themselves. Our studios foster a community of artists that will help you find consistency and joy while sharpening your artistic intuition and skills. Founded by acclaimed artist Walter Bartman, our four studios offer programs in watercolor, oil, acrylic, drawing, and printmaking. Walt and his faculty create a nurturing space for new and experienced students alike to learn and thrive. Our student Susan’s words sum it up perfectly, “I never imagined I would learn and develop as much as I have. I am fortunate to have such a passionate teacher who brings out the best in every student.”
Three Studios, One Purpose
We are guided by the principle that all students possess innate talent, and that with the proper instruction and nurturing, that talent can express itself in many wonderful ways.
We’ve gone virtual in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. The panel below shows how we’re doing it. Visit the four studio pages to learn about our instructors and to sign up for our classes. Contact us if you have questions.
