To see is the student’s first and last concern. Without a well-trained eye a student can never rise above mediocrity. If there ever was a secret of the old masters, it surely was their extraordinary ability to see.
– Richard F. Lack

Wethersfield Academy for the Arts

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.

We have a fabulous set of classes and workshops for you in 2023!  Veronique continues with her Drawing class options on Mondays. Her Oil Painting class in various topics will be held again on Wednesdays. Watercolor options are on Thursdays and Fridays. Pete Anderson will teach Figure Drawing again on Tuesdays. The Youth Art offerings are more diversified than ever but Nick returns on his Sat. morning favorite times. 

For workshops, we welcome Tyler Berry back in January for his amazing teaching in the Figure Drawing; Mara Sfara will teach her popular Animals in their Environment oil paintings workshop, and we are very pleased that Kathryn Engberg will be coming back to teach her Portrait Drawing on toned paper in 2 colors. Join us in these enriching workshops in the coming year!
