Here at the Wallkill River School of Art, we are dedicated to promoting and nurturing the next generation of young artists in our community. One of the biggest challenges young artists face in this area is a general lack of advanced independent art programs, geared towards the fine arts. By providing teens professional level classes, in a real fine art gallery, we hope to give young artists an opportunity to experience the world of professional fine art, in a way not found in a traditional school setting. If you would like to schedule one on one classes for your teen artist, please inquire about private lessons. Advanced teens may also join any of the adult classes.
Kyle Henesy Art Scholarship: We are pleased to announce that we are offering a new scholarship in 2019.
