Art Workshops & Artist's Classes


A Unique Destination

Valley Ridge Art Studio is a unique destination for art workshops, artist classes and art retreats taught by world-class instructors, all at the forefront of their fields. Our workshops and classes explore many art forms, ranging from book arts, collage and mixed media, jewelry, metals, mosaics, papermaking, fiber arts and many other art forms.


Whether discovering a brand new passion, refining a talent or expanding your creative repertoire, the supportive, welcoming environment at Valley Ridge lets you comfortably stretch the boundaries of your imagination.


You’ll find the Valley Ridge experience different than any other art workshop - each workshop is a deep focus on one art form, with a relaxed pace to give you the most knowledge, hands-on experience and opportunity for creative personal growth. Since 1999, hundreds of students have discovered the Valley Ridge difference, and returned time and time again.


Our 2013 season begins with our third ArtVenture in New Orleans. ..... Michael DeMeng in February.  We've also planned an Artventure to Cornwall England, and are featuring a variety of weekend workshops at the Studio.

Settle in for an entire workshop with your own work table for supplies and tools in our state-of-the-art classroom/studio. Small class size assures personal attention from instructors and fosters relationships with instructors and students. Our beautiful location in southwestern Wisconsin features a detached community building serving delicious, healthy meals and comfortable, convenient private bedroom accommodations in our restored farmhouse with shared living space, kitchen, porch and deck, or limited campsites. On-site accommodations are optional and first-come, first-serve.


I always consider coming to your facility as my vacation, I love to learn in a
comfortable and stimulating environment.
