Special events and fundraisers
Our online virtual classes are now up and running. We have over forty classes and workshops for you to choose from. If you are looking to enroll in an art class you can register online on our page or go to glenechopark.org. We will be running our spring term virtually on Zoom, so it doesn’t matter where you live, you can now take a class at the Yellow Barn Studio. Yellow Barn Studio events have been postponed to a later date due to the government shutdown.
Walt Bartman recently spoke and demonstrated to the Montgomery County Art Association on setting up and painting a symbolic still life. If you are interested in taking classes virtually, this video will help you understand this new media. Over twelve hundred people viewed this video.

What our students are saying …
Several years ago I took a leap of faith by enrolling in an oil painting class with Walt Bartman at the Yellow Barn Studio. The minute I walked into the class my senses recalled art studios of long ago, and I immediately felt at home. 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. The Yellow Barn Studio offers a myriad of classes and teachers, and there is something to fit everyone’s schedule and interests all year long. It is a local treasure where everyone can enjoy the arts and achieve their personal best.
Walt Bartman’s workshops on Tilghman Island are inspirational. The beautiful setting of the Island is a perfect painting location due to its color, light, and beauty. After each workshop, I realized how much my observational and painting skills had grown. Through Walt’s instruction, guidance, and critiques, I was inspired to look closer at the world around me, and capture what I saw in different ways. In addition, the dinners and critiques he planned built community and it was great to socialize and paint with other artists. Be inspired, take a chance, take a workshop!
I have been taking classes at the Yellow Barn Studio for five years. I love the atmosphere and camaraderie engendered by the excellent teachers. So many amazing teachers! It is hard to overstate how talented they are and how enthusiastic they are about teaching. It is wonderful to be encouraged to strive toward reaching a high level of expertise as an artist while still having some fun.
