The Art Barn School of Art in Valparaiso has announced its line-up of classes and summer workshops. Included in the calendar are programs for both, adults and children, as well as the 25th anniversary of the organization’s annual juried art show.

Weekly classes for adults consist of watercolor instruction, an all media class for all levels, open studio times, and a life drawing session. Children’s classes are also held weekly, and homeschooled children can join special classes on Mondays.

Summer workshops for the year include multi-day events in watercolor, plein air painting, and an all-media class that encourages students to release their art inhibitions. Workshops begin at 9:00 a.m. and include lunch. Students are instructed by artists who travel from various parts of the U.S. and are well-known in their respective mediums.

And summer isn’t just for adults; three weeks of kids’ camps are offered in June and July for all school-age children.

“We hope that people can come to the Art Barn and find a place that inspires them to relax and create art. The 69 acres of land have provided many artists with inspiration over the years, and we know that 2018 will be no different,” said Julia Holmaas, president of the Art Barn board of directors.

Summer adult workshops are as follows:

● Watercolor with Ken Hosmer, April 30-May 3

● Simplifying the Outdoor Scene, A Plein Air Workshop with Mark Vander Vinne, June 8-10

● Watercolor with Ratindra Das, June 11-14

● Release Your Art Inhibitions, instructed by Lee Ligocki, July 17-18
