  In 2014 we began a journey of preparing for a second century for the Dairy Barn, which was built 100 years prior.  Since then, we have renovated and improved several of our spaces. The upstairs ceramics and art studios have been combined into one large and functional studio space. Current construction will also add many new spaces and a great new layout, including a Fiber Arts Studio and a Digital Studio. With these three new dedicated studios, we will 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 program, with a custom designed curriculum. 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.

For more information about the renovation, expansion and after school program, read this Letter From the Education Director.

Program starts February 14th, and run on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays for ten weeks.

Cost: This Program is Tuition Free!

The Dairy Barn has secured funding to support the development and implementation of this after school program. Due to this, we are able to provide this ten week after school program tuition free.  We do require a $200.00 materials fee to cover the costs of consumables.  Scholarships may be available to reduce this cost as well.  If you feel your family would benefit significantly from a scholarship to reduce the materials 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 lyn@dairybarn.org.
