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.

In Dec. we have our Artful Wreath Workshop which is just fun. Join us for 2 hours of designing your holiday wreath on an art frame with unique Fresh Greens, etc. Sunday Dec. 4 from 1 - 3 pm, limited spaces. See poster below.

Our Holiday Party for Members and Friends of Wethersfield Academy this year is on Tuesday, December 13. Join us for Holiday cheer, yummy food, bring a food item for the town food pantry, and a small art exchange on the Christmas Tree.  Musicians, bring your instrument to play or jam. RSVP:

Finally, consider an End of Year Donation in support of Wethersfield Academy for the Arts. We have had a tremendous year culminating with our 2022 Biennial Competition Art Show which showcased 24 artists with their paintings for 45 days at the Keeney Memorial Cultural Center. As we continue to provide atelier level classes and workshops to inspire the artistic abilities of all ages, we want to provide artists the opportunity to sell their work thus we welcome your support at this time. For all donations of $50 or more, you will receive our newest pack of art cards from our Biennial Competition artists. You can donate with the DONATE button at the bottom of this page, by check or VENMO. Thank you from all at the Academy!
