LUDLOW, Vt. – Fletcher Farm School for the Arts and Crafts has released its fall 2018 – spring 2019 class schedule, which is now available at www.fletcherfarm.org. Online registration is also available.
The school is in its 71st year of operation. As arts programs lose funding in the public education system, the importance of a vital resource like the school increases. Besides providing the basic skills in the arts and crafts, instructors provide historical background and strive to link that background to contemporary culture. Students are invited to explore their creativity and are given support in this endeavor by nationally renowned instructors. For example, this coming spring we are offering a weekend painting class with popular Vermont artist, Peter Huntoon.
Our fall season starts in September, with the following classes:
- Introduction to Chip Carving with Allison Greenberg, Sept. 15-16
- Steps to Outdoor Painting in Oils with Lynn VanNatta, Sept. 21-23
- Crisscross and Hang-up Baskets with Dona Nazarenko, Sept. 22-23
- Writing Flash with Debi Orton, Sept. 29-30

Class and material fees vary, but advance registration is required for all classes. Most classes fill quickly, so please register early to ensure your place. Further information and online registration is available on the school’s web site at www.fletcherfarm.org.
