For more than thirty years, Art New England has offered unique, in-depth workshops in a variety of disciplines in an inspirational setting. Art New England is designed to refresh and expand personal artistic practice. Away from day-to-day demands, the classes, instructors, scenery, food, access to studios and program staff are all there to allow you to focus on one thing: your art work.
Located at Bennington College, long-known as a center for artistic innovation and excellence, Art New England is built on the understanding that time and focus for creative work are extraordinarily precious commodities. We strive to ensure that each class offers an intensive, specialized focus. Instructors are chosen both for the excellence of their work as well as their ability to work with students. Each day is structured to allow people to work as intensively as they choose.
This year we are delighted to welcome back many faculty who have helped make Art New England one of the best summer residency programs in the country And we are also delighted to welcome new faculty who bring new classes and will continue to build our reputation.
