NEW! Classes and Studio Immersion Program

Studio classes return to the Lyme Academy in October, under the guidance of new Continuing Education Director Edmond Rochat. Students of all levels will have the opportunity to design their own schedules, choosing from an array of class offerings on weekdays, nights, and on weekends, during each ten-week trimester. As they progress at their own pace through a series of historically-based foundational exercises, students receive the highest caliber of one-on-one professional instruction.
