We hope that you have been able to steer through these unconventional times and maintain your artistic practice, whatever your creative outlet; whether you’re painting, making collages, taking photos, collecting found objects on your beach walks, or simply baking and eating all the cookies.

We at The Art Barge have been in the same boat and, while we have been a place to create for people of all ages during the past six decades, we currently feel we cannot adequately provide a studio environment that complies with all government re-opening safety guidelines. The Art Barge experience is hands-on and requires personal interaction between instructors, individuals and groups. Therefore, The Art Barge will not open as usual this summer.

We are in the process of creating alternative methods to carry on Mabel and Victor D’Amico’s innovative approach to combining a summer vacation with an art education. Until then, we are happy and encouraged that you are staying in touch and will send you email updates on our progress and directions.

For now, we ask you to remember how art can be a humanizing experience and how it can maintain your sanity and wellbeing.

Thank you and looking forward,

Christopher Kohan, President
