All posts by Village Arts of Putney

VAP is a fine arts education center providing painting and drawing workshops. Home of The Putney Painters, a private invitational painting group with Richard Schmid & Nancy Guzik, this quiet little gem has been busy producing art careers for the past 18 years. Just a five minute walk up Kimball Hill/Westminster Rd. from the Putney General Store is a world unto itself when you enter the 250+ barn studio. For 18 years, artists have been coming from all over the world to study from our master painters who have studied with or been deeply influenced by Richard Schmid. Village Arts also sells Schmid books, lithographs/prints, DVDs, and Rosemary Brushes of England. To visit, please contact Penelope at or call 802-246-7742.
