The Artists Association of Nantucket offers year-round art education for students of all ages and levels. The Visual Arts Center on 24 Amelia Drive is home to our "greener" eco-friendly studios for ceramics, printmaking, painting, drawing, mixed media, children’s classes, rental studios, a gallery, and resident apartment. We believe that active participation and learning experiences in the arts are essential to building a vibrant community and more compassionate world.
WE HAVE A NEW SYSTEM!
All students and caregivers, new or returning members and non-members, must REGISTER and MAKE A NEW ACCOUNT to enroll in classes and workshops.

OUR SPACE and OUR STUDIOS
The AAN's classes and workshops take place on the three well appointed floors of the Visual Arts Center. Each floor has been designed with an eye towards green practices, and ventilated for its specific use and age group. Front and back entrances open to a gallery and front desk, and our staff offices. Our two bright sunny children's studios are also found on the first floor. For maximum space and flow, these studios can be made into one big space by a moveable wall. They also have access to the back porch and sculpture garden. Downstairs we have our spacious ceramics studios for wheel throwing and hand building, and a kiln room. Upstairs are adult studios for painting and printmaking, private studios, and a comfortable airy apartment for residents and visiting workshop artists.
