The Woodstock School of Art holds classes throughout the year, summer and winter, in air-conditioned or radiant heated studios, newly renovated but retaining the rugged country charm of the original stone and timber buildings. An average of more than four hundred students from the United States and countries abroad currently enroll in any given year. Since its inception, and continuing to this day, hundreds of renowned artists and notables in the art world have been associated with the school.
The schedule includes daily classes in drawing, painting, composition, sculpture and printmaking, with workshops in specialized techniques under the guidance of experts in their respective fields.
The Woodstock School of Art is one of the unique organizations that contribute to the Town of Woodstock's reputation as a vital, contemporary colony of the arts. Others include the venerable Woodstock Artists Association and Museum, the Byrdcliffe-inspired Woodstock Guild, the Maverick Chamber Music Concerts, the Woodstock Playhouse, and the Center for Photography. All flourish in the stimulating environment and natural beauty in the green valley below the Catskill's Overlook Mountain. Add to the mix the cafes, restaurants, theater, art galleries, antique shops, a first-run movie house, a library with wireless internet access, swimming, tennis courts, horseback riding, and walking along the many secluded trails, the experience of coming to Woodstock and attending the Woodstock School of Art is likely to be as fulfilling and unforgettable as it will be productive.
