"Our daughter has blossomed in the relaxed natural environment. There she grows, not only as an artist, but as a person. She particularly enjoys the chance to be messy and creative at the same time!”

'With so much in their lives prepackaged and done for them, where are the experiences in which children, growing to maturity, learn that doing is fraught with uncertainty, but wonderfully rewarding when brought to completion by one 's own efforts?" -Dorothy Cohen The Learning Child

A PLACE TO CREATE
Set on a hill above tree lined meadows in Bernardston, MA, Meadowedge offers 4- 13 year olds a deep and enduring involvement with visual art.
Small classes and the continuity of a 25 week program provide a stable framework within which imagination and skills grow together into unified expression.
During the 90 - 120 minute classes, students work at their own pace; each participant is encouraged to trust his or her unique way of seeing, and to develop the tools and techniques necessary to bring his or her vision to life. Confidence is heightened through community exhibitions, where students feel a sense of celebration and pride in displaying their completed work.
