OUR HISTORY

In 1969 Jan and her husband Bud purchased this 19th century farm east of Valparaiso in Jackson Township. Cattle filled the pastures and were herded into the lower barn.  Jan began hosting workshops, classes, and plein air painting in the woods and fields of the farm—aptly nicknamed “Happy Jan’s Farm.”

The Art Barn School of Art—Jan Sullivan’s vision—continues to be a place of inspiration for the creative soul and support for the artist within. We’re still making history.  Come visit us and see for yourself.  Explore, create, relax. Find out what art means to you.
