Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Provide exceptional studio craft and fine art instruction for people of all ages in an inspiring residential setting. In order to continue meeting this, we continue to do improvements to our studios and buildings, invite dynamic artists/instructors to teach classes here, and offer a welcoming, collaborative community to nurture and support personal growth.

Snow Farm has invested in a new website to communicate this vision, added new staff positions to deliver quality programming, researches and invites artists/instructors from the region to teach, builds strategic partnerships, and is seeking financial contributions to continue building on the existing strengths.

Snow Farm has a dedicated and experienced staff and Board of Directors who are passionate about making Snow Farm a strong resource for the community.

Snow Farm has been working hard at improving systems and procedures internally to operate efficiently and effectively. We have listened to our community and made improvements to the studios and buildings to make the Snow Farm experience as enjoyable as possible. Example, 2 " foam toppers on all of the beds, new equipment in many of the studios, and a renovation of the Common Room with new furniture and technology for presentations. We are pleased to be working with the Conway School of Design on a spring 2018 project to analyze our land and the environmental factors that are unique to Snow Farm. We are also finalizing a Strategic Plan that will give us specific goals and we will work on objectives to support those goals.
