River Gallery School is a vibrant hub for Brattleboro’s artistic community, with bright, spacious studios on Main Street overlooking the West River. Founded in 1976, RGS offers classes, community workshops, and summer and school vacation programs for students of all ages.  Our core faculty members are all professional working artists, and teach a wide range of visual media including all types of painting, drawing, printmaking, and encaustics.
