We are a non-profit art academy located in historic Old Wethersfield, CT. Our location is quite unique because we are located in the restored old Buck Barns located on Hartford Avenue. The Academy embraces several art disciplines where students, working directly with professional artists, are guided and encouraged to develop their unique gifts and talents. We provide opportunities in art classes, workshops, and art lectures for the novice through the professional to benefit from study, apprenticeship, exhibition and performance, and to promote the arts in the best classical tradition for enjoyment and inspiration.
