Visual Art Education
Art education plays an enormously important role in communities where the arts are a pervasive part of the economy and culture. In the Berkshires, many organizations help to educate citizens, young and old, about the making, appreciating and living with Art. These organizations help to connect practicing artists with the community in order to foster a broader understanding of the role art plays in our society.
