2019 Artist in Residence Geuryung Lee stated “I deeply appreciate that Woodstock School of Art provided the fantastic opportunity that I could attend the artist residency.  I am honored to be the first artist resident at the Woodstock School of Art. I could have the time to refresh at the beautiful and natural environment of Woodstock, and it stimulates inspiration and creativity to me, and I could concentrate on my work. Also, I could meet great people through Woodstock School of Art, which is the contemporary colony of the arts.”

The Woodstock School of Art, Inc. is a not-for-profit, 501(c)3, educational institution chartered under the laws of the State of New York. The school is located in New York’s famed artists’ colony of Woodstock, surrounded by the pristine woodlands of the Catskill Mountains, about 100 miles north of New York City.

Classes in fine art, including drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture are offered year round in fully climate controlled studios. Classes are open to all, with no entrance requirements or experience necessary.

Woodstock School of Art’s mission is to offer high quality, affordable instruction in fine art, maintain stewardship of its unique and historic buildings for continued use as an art school, and provide opportunities which engage the community in allied arts activities and exhibitions. Woodstock School of Art, founded in 1968 by local artists, is based on a campus constructed in 1939 as a WPA project. Woodstock School of Art’s National and State Historic Landmark buildings are situated on 38 wooded acres. Originally constructed as a National Youth Administration camp for providing instruction to rural youth in applied arts such as woodworking, masonry, blacksmithing and pottery, the native timber and bluestone buildings were built by the original students themselves. Since its construction, Woodstock School of Art’s buildings have continuously been used as a place for community education and remain one of the few independent facilities for fine art education in the Hudson Valley.
