For more than thirty-five years, Art New England (ANE) has offered unique, in-depth workshops in a variety of disciplines in an inspirational setting. ANE is built on the understanding that time and focus for creative work are extraordinarily precious commodities, and is designed to refresh and expand personal artistic practice. Away from day-to-day demands, the classes, scenery, food, and access to studios, instructors, and program staff allow participants to focus on one thing: making art.

Each class offers an intensive, specialized focus and instructors are chosen for both the excellence of their work and their ability to work with students. Workshops in painting, printmaking, and sculpture begin weekly on Sunday evening, run Monday through Friday from 9 am to 4 pm, and end on Saturday at noon. Studios are open until midnight.

The Summer 2020 program, held in July on the campus of Hamilton College, will see the return of many faculty who have helped make Art New England one of the top summer residency programs in the country. The eclectic mix of workshops includes Expressions in Wire, Paper and Paper Clay; Sculpture as Adornment; Monoprinting for Painters, Printmakers and Photographers; Going Off the Wall: Playful Thinking in 3D; Intaglio Printmaking; and Listening to the Landscape.

Art New England is a program of Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Undergraduate and graduate credit are available for all workshops; discount for active K12 educators. Dates are Week 1: July 12-18; Week 2: July 19-25; Week 3: July 26-August 1.
