Our Mission

To provide quality art education programs for all ages in a supportive, creative environment in order to enrich the quality of life in the region.  

Our Vision

To be a recognized forum for the arts in a collaborative, community-based setting which provides an idyllic and supportive place for exploration, growth, inspiration, and development of artistic endeavors.

Who We Are

School, Gallery, Venue, Farm

The Art Barn has something for everyone. We offer year round classes and workshops for all ages, including open studio time. Each season brings new events, from the spring Juried Exhibition and Children’s Exhibit, to the autumn Art Blitz. Our main classroom and gallery comfortably seats 50 or more and is a perfect venue for small weddings and intimate parties.

The Art Barn School of Art was founded in the 1970’s by the much loved artist and teacher Janet Sullivan (1920-2016). Located on 69 acres of beautiful pastoral farmland in Jackson Township, the school is a century old renovated barn, and the farmhouse is artist residence. We are also home to chickens and other livestock, including our sweet mini horse, Bunny.

As we move into 2019, we continue to enrich our community with excellence in art education. Click here to stay up to date.

Come explore, create, relax, and let yourself wander in mind and body.
