Reflecting & Contributing to the Cultural Landscape of the Berkshires

Learning Through Arts (LTA) uses art-making as a tool to improve academics and behavior, while allowing students to make interdisciplinary connections, experiment with new mediums, and learn advanced art techniques. 

Student artists explore new ways of looking at and responding to the world around them. They learn skills that resonate long after they have left the program. 


2018–19 LTA Student Enrollment

  • Summer 2018: 116 students

  • Fall 2018: 194 students

  • Winter 2019: 159 students

  • 600 total students in LTA this year!
