I went down the the Berkshire Arts Festival today and discovered the Renaissance Arts Center in Great Barrington. It is physically located in the Jenifer House Shops on Stockbridge Road. They run a year round arts institute for all ages. Week five of their summer institute begins tomorrow with classes in collage for ages 5-7, Digital Photography for ages 11-14 as well as 13-15, a class called "Turn Styles" for ages 8 -10 described as exploration into Pop Art, Impressionism, Abstract, and Graffiti Art. This place offers wonderful opportunities for you to explore new forms of art expression. If you are looking for something new for the summer, click the link above and check them out. This is another option for art making in the Berkshires. Don't forget to follow opportunities at the Berkshire Museum, MASS MOCA Kidspace, and IS183 as well. Happy summer, happy art making!!!
