Our History

The Art School at Old Church was established in 1974 as a non-profit, nonsectarian cultural resource center. A band of artists and friends seeking to start a community art school saw promise in a local 19th-century church building. Through their hard work and dedication, the group transformed the old church into a center for artistic learning and enrichment. Today, the Art School continues to offer educational and cultural experiences that enrich the quality of life in the local and regional community.
