The Facility

In general, on an on-going basis, we offers art education through college-credited courses as well as workshops; the former provides an off-campus learning experience for students enrolled in colleges or high schools and students who wish to build portfolio to apply for  advanced art study in their college and graduate school applications; the latter is open to general public of diverse background and capability. Our focus and facility is especially favorable for 3D sculpture, multi-disciplinary visual arts and experimental music.  Students work in direct contact with professionals and receive much individual attention. We strive to establish this grounds to serve regional colleges and universities as their off-campus teaching facilities. CAI is a cooperating institution of the Massachusetts College of Art and Design.

Our classroom is unconventional.  There is an indoor classroom as well as several acres of outdoor teaching grounds. Our capabilities are enhanced by an inspiring sculptural park and heavy industrial machines for large scale work.
