Art-Away Excursions

Explore the world of art.

Open Window Studio Art-Away Trips are an opportunity for students to immerse themselves in the art world of a different city. We spend our days visiting world famous art museums and out of the spotlight art galleries.

We visit artist studios to get an inside look at the artist’s process and, when possible, participate in an art class at a local art college. In the evenings we retreat to a private home where we have plenty of down time to process the day and relax. We make art, watch movies and eat home cooked meals. Each excursion is limited to 8 students, allowing for a quality community experience.  In 2022, we are planning to travel to Baltimore/Washington in the spring and Santa Fe in the early summer.

All Day Art Classes

Not to be missed.

Our all day art classes are like mini art camps. From our annual Day of the Dead extravaganza to Holiday Giftmaking in clay, Scraps to Sculpture and Painting in the Garden, all of our classes emphasize creative thinking, experimentation, community building and fun.

Unless otherwise noted, our All Day Art classes are from 9:00-3:00 and cost $120. All supplies are included.
