LUDLOW, Vt. – The Fletcher Farm School for the Arts and Crafts in Ludlow, Vt., is pleased to announce the classes comprising the school’s summer schedule. New instructors have signed on to teach at the school, and some previous instructors have returned. The schedule offers more than 50 classes in a variety of disciplines. Our brochures have been sent to those on our mailing list, and our website, www.fletcherfarm.org, has been updated with more information on the summer classes. Some spring classes are still available too.
Class registration is available online or interested students can contact the school. Our office is open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. You can stop in to register or to pick up a brochure.
In addition, we are hosting two art and craft festivals, the first July 6. The second, to be held Aug. 17, will be combined with the Okemo Valley Chamber of Commerce’s Chrome and Craft event. A wide variety of crafters will be on hand.
For those not familiar with the school, we will be holding our annual Open Studio May 25-26, where many of our instructors will be demonstrating their work. The public is welcome and encouraged to stop in to see what we do and to ask questions.
We have eight classes for young artists this year, and scholarships are available for children from Ludlow and Cavendish. Scholarships are also available for Ludlow seniors, thanks to a grant from the Anthony Marro Trust Fund. Residents of Ludlow and Cavendish must provide proof of residency in order to qualify for the subsidy generously provided by the Fletcher Farm Foundation, which can be obtained from the Town Clerk’s offices.
The Society of Vermont Artists and Craftsmen, the organization that owns and operates the Fletcher Farm School for the Arts and Crafts, is always seeking volunteers. If you are interested in working at the school, or if you’d like to join our Board of Directors, contact our office.
