Description:
An innovative school of art sponsored by the Art Students League of New York opened in Woodstock in 1906, and from its very beginning became a magnet for working and beginning artists lured to the idyllic mountains, meadows, woods, and streams of the Woodstock region. In 1979 the League discontinued its summer classes, and two years later The Woodstock School of Art, a non-profit organization of local artists started in 1968, took over the complex of massive bluestone and timber studios that had been built by the Federal Government as a crafts training center before World War II.
