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.

CALL TO ARTISTS:   The Wethersfield Academy has been invited to have a booth at the Cove Arts & Crafts Fair on Saturday, Oct. 2; 10 am - 4pm to show member artists drawings this year. They can be any subject matter in graphite, charcoal or colored pencil. We believe in the importance of this step in the development of art forms. If you want like to show and sell your drawings, details and registration here.

 

Figure Drawing Session this Sunday Sept. 19 from 10am to 2:30pm. Spaces still available. Non-instructional, but monitored. Bring your own materials. Model fee included $25. Please RSVP: info@wethesfieldarts.org
