Hello all,

The Fall semester at The Drawing Studio begins September 7th and enrollment is now open. If you are interested in working creatively, we offer Long Pose Figure Painting, Drawing Basics, Wednesday Open Studios, Private lessons in drawing and painting and a weekend workshop in Color Mixing. These are some of the ways you can join us at The Drawing Studio.


Color and Painting Workshop

Join us for a week at The Drawing Studio in Brattleboro and learn about yourself as a painter. We will explore color mixing, light, materials, composition and creativity in a clear and integrated way. During our lunch breaks, we will look at painters from art history who loved what we will be learning about.
For absolute beginners or painters looking to revisit the fundamentals in an inspiring and whole-hearted way.


For the Love of the Game: Emma Rueter Portraits at CX Silver Gallery

C.X. Silver Gallery is pleased to announce a new exhibition of extraordinary black and white portraits by Emma Rueter, recent B.U.H.S. graduate, formerly also of Hilltop Montessori, and aspiring artist and photographer. The images of high school athletes, part of a series entitled ‘For the Love of the Game’, have a definite archetypal quality.

Drawing Studio Summer Schedule

The Drawing Studio in Brattleboro is offering a variety of creative opportunities this Summer; classes in Life Drawing, Drawing Basics and an immersive weeklong workshop in Color and Painting.  There are also weekly drop-in life drawing sessions and Open Studio hours for independent and guided work.  Jason Alden is a skilled and attentive instructor who will meet you at any level of experience, from absolute beginner to long-time painter.


Spring Drawing Workshop at The Drawing Studio (May 5th and 6th)

This weekend workshop will help you to draw anywhere you are with more curiosity and enjoyment. The world and nature are in constant communication with us. There are ways of seeing and drawing that can move this communication into a conversation. When we see something not only as its object name i.e. brook, but also as it’s qualities, flowing, cold, reflective, dark, murmuring, the brook becomes fuller, more dimensional and we have many more ways to creatively interact with it. Also, our drawings become more personal and particular to our senses and our experience of things.
