Adult Classes, Paint Parties, Workshops and Demos

For the fifth year in a row, Collins Artworks has been voted #1 in the 2016 Item “Best Of” reader poll, this year for the new category of Art Services. The Item is a popular local newspaper. Thank you to all who voted for us. Your recognition is greatly appreciated!

Adult Classes

If you’ve never painted before and would like to give it a try, if you’ve painted in the past but have been away too long, or if you already paint and would like to try a new medium or sharpen your skills with a medium you already use, consider our classes for adults. Generally scheduled for weekday evenings from 7 PM to 8:30 PM and Friday afternoons or Saturday day or evening. We offer classes in a variety of media for students at all levels of experience. All our classes are small (no more than 12 students), our instructors are highly qualified, and our tuition is low. Detailed information about specific offerings can be found on this page.

If you are interested in attending a class that we don’t seem to offer, please let us know. We are always planning new classes and your requests directly impact what we decide to offer.


If you represent or belong to an artists group in the local area (within reasonable driving distance of Clinton, Massachusetts), we and many of our artists are available to give demos. We would need to hear from someone from your group responsible for planning meetings so we can learn more about your group, decide what kind of demo would be most appropriate and plan the actual event.


In addition to our regular classes, we will occasionally offer a related two or three day workshop or plein air outing by one of our associated art instructors. These special events offer a more intense creative experience than you generally get from the regular classes.

As opportunities arise and our schedule allows, we also host workshops by visiting artists.

If you are an artist interested in running a two day, three day, or even week long workshop, plein air outing, or other special art class or event in a rural New England setting, let us know. We can work with you to facilitate your workshop and to make it a success.

Up-to-date information about our art classes, workshops and demos can always be found here on our web site and in our periodic email newsletter.

“I enjoyed our watercolor class this past winter/spring. It was a great review for me. Got me painting again in watercolors.” – Alice Trussell.
