About Summer Arts

A Note From The Director
Sculpture Workshop Putney, Vermont

Come to Putney this summer and do what you love to do - whether it’s something you wish you could do all the time - like filmmaking, theater, or drawing, or something you’ve never tried before and are curious to learn about - like glass arts, weaving, or metal jewelry.

At Putney, students focus on their individual creative process, not final products. Whatever you choose to do, you’ll find yourself in a community of students, teachers, and artists who are interested in who you are, how you see the world, and what your work means to you.

As we get to know one another, learning new skills and forming our summer community, you’ll likely experience the feeling of having one foot out of your comfort zone. But you’ll be together, building strong friendships, with lots of other people your age who are also taking risks in their work.

Putney’s not about competition. It’s about friendships and community. Contact me if you’ve got questions, if you’d like to talk with students who’ve enjoyed their summers at Putney - or just send in your application. I look forward to talking with you.
