At a Glance

Nestled in southwest New Hampshire, West Swanzey is one of several postcard perfect towns in the Monadnock region. Winding wooded roads through six covered bridges, historic sites and Mount Monadnock itself offer an incredible opportunity to capture its essence in time on canvas. Our studio is surrounded by the incredible beauty of nature awaiting your presence. This program is designed for intermediate to advanced watercolor artists, but we will be offering a beginner to novice watercolor course on the first September date of this program.
