Art Education

 General Description:

We specialize in 3D art form particularly stone carving and kinetic metal sculpture; however, we do offer wide range of art media, including painting, installation and performance art.  We understand Art is a highly individualized activity, therefore, our teachers would designed the course detail (structure and class time) together with students.  All classes are designed to develop your artistic ability by teaching you about the elements and principles of the targeted media through the hands-on art creation and evaluation of artwork. You will use a variety of art materials, processes, mediums, and techniques for creating, discussing and exhibiting art works. In addition, your skill level and definition of art will be challenged, validated, and expanded through your own self-exploration, teacher’s coaching and mastery of different art mediums and techniques.

 The Facility

In general, on an ongoing basis, we offers art education through college-credited courses as well as workshops; the former provides an off-campus learning experience for students enrolled in colleges or high schools and students who wish to build a portfolio to apply for advanced art study in their college and graduate school applications; the latter is open to general public of diverse background and capability. Our facility is especially favorable for 3D sculpture, multi-disciplinary visual arts and experimental music. Students work in direct contact with professionals and receive much individual attention. We strive to establish this grounds to serve regional colleges and universities as their off-campus teaching facilities. CAI is a cooperating institution of the Massachusetts College of Art and Design.

Our classroom is unconventional. There is an indoor classroom as well as several acres of outdoor teaching grounds. Our capabilities are enhanced by an inspiring sculptural park and heavy industrial machines for large scale work.
