Lunenburg School of the Arts offers workshops led by professional art educators and working artists. Our small and intimate class sizes allow students to work closely with instructors and each other, fostering self-expression in a supportive atmosphere. We offer courses in a wide variety of mediums, our programs encourage exploration, discovery and development of skills and ideas. We are located in the heart of Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage site, a hub for arts and music. With its historic townscape and a working waterfront, the Town of Lunenburg is our campus.
