Create Art

Whether you are a beginner, are looking for a master class to burnish your skills, or just want to find a group of friendly artists to paint with in the studio or outdoors, the Lyme Art Association has a program for you.


From our exhibit receptions, to our artist gatherings, to our fundraisers, Lyme Art Association events are art-centric, bringing together people who believe that art is vital to well-being and enjoyment of life.
