The Art School at Rowayton Arts Center

Artists at all levels – from beginners to professionals – are welcome at classes and workshops in our large, well-equipped studio. Our award-winning artist-teachers and guest instructors encourage both youngsters and adults to develop their creativity, style and skill while exploring their artistic ideas in a comfortable, supportive atmosphere.

Participants in RAC classes have an opportunity to display their work during "From the RAC Studio", our annual January exhibition, which spotlights art by our instructors and their students from the previous year.

Periodic demonstrations and lectures by nationally-recognized professionals attract art appreciators as well as artists.

We recently installed a chair lift that improves access to our second-floor studio. This was made possible through donations by RAC members and other supporters. Click for donor list.

Special Art Education Opportunities:

Sundays, January 11 and 25 - demonstrations by RAC instructors
