The original Dairy Barn was built in 1914. 100 years later, in 2014 we began a journey of preparing for a second century for the Dairy Barn. We have renovated and improved several of our spaces, as well as built a beautiful addition while keeping the historic facade in the front of the building. We now are proud to have three dedicated functional studio spaces. They include a Fiber Arts Studio, a Ceramics Studio, and a Digital Studio. With these new and improved spaces, we have the ability to offer a tremendous range of programming for adults and youth, one of which will be a brand new after school program for students currently in 8th-12th grades.
Both the Ceramics and Fiber Arts Studios will have an after school course, with a custom designed curriculum. Both courses will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting September 19th and run 8 weeks. Students can choose between the two courses, as they will run simultaneously. If a student is interested in both courses, they can simply register in the winter quarter for the second one. Each program will have a digital element where students will learn to photograph their work and assemble a digital portfolio. Both will be taught by a local artist or arts instructor and share the same formal elements of art education, art making, art history, art appreciation and art criticism.
$150.00 to Family-Level Membership Holders
The Dairy Barn has secured funding to support the development and implementation of this after school program. Due to this, we are able to offer scholarships on a limited basis. If you feel your family would benefit significantly from a scholarship to reduce the fee, contact Education Director, Lyn Stanton. Conversely, if you would like to contribute to the scholarship fund to help other families, Lyn would be happy to process your donation. Payment plans are also an available option. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special Note: Online payment option will be available August 18th but you can still register your student today and Lyn will email you when online payment is available.
