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

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.
