Our 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, rural, creative environment. 

Our Vision

Our vision is to be a vital, financially stable, community-based organization, recognized as a quality forum for people to come together to celebrate art and nurture their 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.
