We have ongoing fundraising to support the construction of guest cabins, to provide housing to visiting artists and students alike, a seperate pottery studio, a painting studio perched high on a ridge at tree top level to inspire the painter by nature, and an amphitheater cut into the hillside, boasting natural and beautiful acoustics, and providing a unique venue for local musicians. We also are in the process of fundraising to acquire adjacent property which will give us the opportunity to build a glass program emcompassing all aspects of glass art, from flamework to blown glass. This property will at the same time open the door to begin education in organic farming, providing space for garden plots, orchards and vineyards.
