FALL CLASSES ARE NOW OPEN FOR REGISTRATION
Back-to-school isn't just for kids! The LAA offers a range of classes in our beautiful north light studio as well as plein air classes in our beautiful natural surroundings.
For a quiet little town, Old Lyme is packed with art!
The Florence Griswold Museum, right next door, is currently exhibiting Art and the New England Farm, paintings, drawings, and photographs from public and private collections that trace the challenges of farming in New England.
The University of New Haven’s Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts is just down the street, but this summer we have an installation from their visiting artist, Ana Flores, right on our grounds. She is an award winning “ecological artist” probing the relationships between the human and natural history in different geographies. One of her goals as an artist is to encourage the public’s awareness of their local landscapes, deepening their connections to place because if we don’t care about something we will not help protect it. She worked with one of Lyme Art Association's associate artists, Sara Drought Nebel, to create a "Vision Box" overlooking the stream running behind the gallery.
