ACADEMY

Our academy, nestled within the prestigious New Salem Museum of Art (NSMA), honors the historic nature of the property by offering a unique learning experience for aspiring artists, students, and art enthusiasts alike. The NSMA Academy aims to be an institution where history and innovation merge to nurture the artists of tomorrow.

Our third floor academy takes inspiration from historic artist workshops of the Renaissance era and 19th century Parisian ateliers. The northern exposed skylights accompanied by natural wood interiors throughout creates an intimate yet stunning atmosphere for artists to grow and thrive in. 

Students will have the opportunity to study with contemporary artists and examine individual masterworks up close. Our curriculum introduces students to the rich history of 19th century art academies and their influence on the collection at NSMA. Offerings include workshops, classes, figure drawing groups, lectures, and competitions.
