You can take a workshop anywhere, but there’s no place as gorgeous as Tahoe! Classes can be taken for credit or non-credit.
We are now moved into the brand new Holman Arts and Media Center!
We’re very excited to be in this brand new facility generously donated by Rob and Robin Holman, and supported by numerous community members. It’s bigger, brighter, has new equipment and facilities. Please come to celebrate this special year, our 30th anniversary of the workshop program, and to work in this gorgeous new building..

General Information on Summer Workshops
SNC offers a variety of summer workshops given by nationally known ceramists, glass artists, painters, sculptors, printmakers, digital artists, musicians, photographers, paper makers, jewelers, and more.
On Tuesday night at 7pm, each week during the workshops, we’ll host our “Meet the Artist” lecture in the Prim Library, which will be immediately followed by an informal reception in the Tahoe Gallery. It’s free and open to the public.
Students can take workshops for personal enrichment or college credit. Tuition includes some materials, possible firings, equipment rental, etc. Upon paid registration, students will receive an information packet with maps and directions to the college, where the class will meet, what to bring to the workshop, and other pertinent information, as well as Tahoe visitors info.

ARC's list of alternative art schools updated
Agree or not, the introduction is a rant, but some of the listings are a great compilation of different programs in the US and some abroad. Just scroll down and check them out page by page.
More programs and schools are listed on and there's a good article entitled "Summer Academies" By James Lancel McElbinney in the current isssue of American Arts Quarterly - Summer 2004. It's followed by another list that includes yet other schools including Studio 126 which appears to be specifically workshops and summer programs.
ARC has 55 listings, 14 pages in all. www
