Join artist and DAC instructor Nancy McTague-Stock for a plein air painting and drawing class at the beautiful Cherry Lawn Park. The tradition of painting outside has a rich history, famed in Connecticut by the Cos Cob and Lyme painting colonies from the 1890's. Come join us and continue the tradition! Nancy will bring her favorite portable mediums: graphite pencil, colored pencil and watercolor for demonstration. The DAC will provide graphite pencil, watercolor, brush and paper. Feel free to bring any additional art supplies. Also, please bring a small folding chair, sunscreen and a bottle of water. If you have questions, please email Emily Altman at emily@darienarts.org.






Virtual Private Music Lessons
Please contact Juanita Bosee at juanita@darienarts.org.

The Music Program is open to children and adults. Our students receive a foundation in classical or jazz which can later be applied to any musical interest. All of our instructors are professionals chosen both for their artistry and teaching skills. We offer instruction in piano, voice, guitar, violin, flute, cello and percussion. Through one-on-one instruction, our students discover their full potential by strengthening their technique, artistry, self- awareness and individuality.
