The Studio

The Abbey's renovated farm building is a rustic retreat offering natural light from wall-to-wall windows.  The tall ceiling with its exposed rafters create an environment of beauty and inspiration. 


Students enjoy built-in work stations, excellent studio lighting for night classes, personal storage lockers, studio easels, tables, personal still life stands and drawing stations.  Personal still life, grid, and lighting, and a selection of plaster casts are also available.


Easy access, with no stairs to climb, and ample parking make the facility convenient for all. 

On the beautiful grounds of the monastery, students hear the Abbey Church bells ring on the hours.  This setting, along with the famous Benedictine welcome, contrives to give our students the perfect place to learn.
