Welcome

About Us

Since 1987, Putney Summer Arts has welcomed a diverse community of young artists and arts professionals to the Putney School campus each summer, providing a space where students who are passionate about the arts receive support and inspiration through intensive workshops in visual, performing, interdisciplinary, and literary art forms. 

Located on a working farm in Southern Vermont, the Putney School is a leader in progressive education, committed to the ideal of “learning by doing” and encouraging students to play an active role in shaping their own education. As a Summer Arts participant you will have the opportunity to spend your summer fully immersed in the Putney lifestyle, which supports the arts as a necessary element of everyday life. 

Summer Camp for Teens

Join our tight-knit community of young artists for our flagship summer program where you’ll find the space and support needed to fully immerse yourself in the craft of your choosing.

Summer Programs for Adults

With a variety of workshops that appeal to adults of all ages, our arts intensive provide the guidance, time, and space you need to develop your individual work. Our programs also serve as a valuable professional development opportunity for teachers.

“I learned a lot of techniques and about more materials. I have started making art a lot more and I will continue doing so!”
