The Art Barn art gallery and school of art

 


Welcome to the Artbarn!

Established in 1977, Art Barn School of Art is a not for profit organization located on 69 acres of beautiful pastoral farmland in Jackson Township. The school is housed in a century old renovated barn, and the farmhouse is artist residence. Each season here inspires painters in oil, acrylic and watercolor, sculptors, photographers, and art lovers from all over the country. Works of local and national artists are on exhibit, and summer workshops are taught by nationally acclaimed professionals. Our ongoing schedule of events include yearly exhibitions, juried shows, classes, and workshops for all ages and levels of talent.
