Meet the MSFA Director and hear what
"Learning to draw and paint has an impact on one’s life that goes beyond description. Art is universal; it is for everyone! You do not need any experience, you have been 'born with the gift.'
Whether you are a child of 6, 10, or 16, or an adult of 30, 60, or 90, if you have the desire to learn how art is made and want that artistic force working in your life, the Mitchell School can help make this dream a reality.
Through fundamental drawing skills and personal artistic exploration, EVERY student is given the opportunity to envision and share their personal vision."
-Director Trevor Twist
Originally established in 1965 by Elizabeth Byrd Mitchell, Mitchell School of Fine Arts provides professional fine art instruction for beginners to advanced students in the tradition of the European Masters. Our small classes provide students with a high degree of personal attention, and the experienced faculty teaches creative problem solving skills in a supportive and encouraging environment. The convenient location and flexible class schedule make creating art possible for even the busiest family.
