In conjunction with The Villages Lifelong Learning College, we present a roster of nationally known professional art instructors. We endeavor to find an exciting slate of teachers with experience in a variety of subjects. For a sneak preview of each instructor’s paintings, please see our workshop schedules for thier websites, or simply Google their website and enjoy viewing their work.

Our workshops offer learning experiences structured to reach each student at their present level and help them build skills they can apply to their future paintings. As an art student in our workshops, you have the opportunity to focus on your creativity and get to know other like-minded people in a relaxed atmosphere.

In addition to workshop schedules, our website provides you with details about our classroom, lodging options, directions and much more. Please take a look at why we are considered Florida's Art Destination and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
