Located on the Green in Chester, Vermont, the Community Art Garden offers art classes and open studio hours for those who love to create.

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!




We offer a variety of classes throughout the year as well as weekly drop-in open studio opportunities for all ages. 



We offer a variety of camps throughout the summer as well as during holiday breaks during the school year.
