Explore, Create, Relax





























Our Vision and Mission

The Art Barn School of Art is a not-for-profit organization that promotes and conducts visual arts education classes and activities. The Art Barn develops a foundation in artistic expression for children and adults, and nurtures their love of art in a unique, creative, rural environment. 

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 to the autumn Art Blitz. Our main classroom and gallery seats 50 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 (1924-2016). 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.

2018 is bringing some exciting new projects and class offerings including the addition of a new pottery studio. Click here to stay up to date.

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