"Nothing without Joy!" 
- Loris Malaguzzi

The Community Art Garden is an art studio, school and gallery located on the green in historic Chester, Vermont.  Since 2013, we have been committed to keeping COMMUNITY ARTS ALIVE through classes, workshops and open studio opportunities.  

We draw inspiration from the schools of Reggio Emilia, Italy because of their focus on community, arts education, beautiful environments and respect for the young child.  Above all else, we like to have FUN with our open ended approach and our ever evolving art studio, and YOU are invited to join in and help make our Community Art Garden grow!
