The Snow Farm campus is peaceful and inspirational in a rustic setting with birds overhead and trees, pastures, and woodland all around. The studios, living areas, and main building are clustered together on the 50-acre property, all within walking distance of each other, down dirt roads or across grass fields and gentle hills.
The main building includes the dining hall with inside and outside eating areas, and the common room with comfy seating for reading and relaxing. The common room is also where movies are shown, artist talks take place, and students exhibit their work on Friday nights. The common room is decorated with art from some of our artist/instructors: Gasali Adeyemo created to large fabric panels for the walls, several wood and steel tables were made by Forrest Stone, and the colorful handpainted benches were done by Linda Jaques. On the lower level of the main building are the ceramics studio and the kiln & stained glass studio.
At one time, the property belonged to the Snow Family and was a working farm. Apple and pear trees dot the perimeter. The historic barn buildings have been converted into our studios for welding, drawing & painting, metalsmithing & jewelry, and flameworking. The farmhouse, which houses our offices and the fiber studio, dates back to 1750. In total, there are 11 historic and modern buildings on the Snow Farm campus.
The Snow Farm New England landscape is beautiful in every season.
