Intensive Summer Workshops

Our one-week intensive summer workshops provide an ideal environment to focus on learning and studio work. Taught by instructors renown in their field, these classes are designed to give participants unhindered time where they don’t have to think about anything other than making. Monson Arts provides all meals and the option of housing right in town within walking distance to all of our facilities. Our studios are open 24 hours.

A typical workshop includes 10-15 participants and we are able to host two workshops at a time in our facilities. Sessions begin with dinner on Sunday night and conclude with lunch on Friday. Workshops are open to anyone 18 or older and working at any level from beginners to advanced professionals. Enrollment is on a first-come first-served basis. 

In 2020, we are excited to offer eight workshops in a variety of media taking place in July and August. Our catalog with complete course descriptions and online registration will be available starting January 1. Until then we have listed the following preview of our faculty lineup and schedule:
