2017 Workshop Rates & Information

Our all-in-one workshop environment is what enhances your overall experience at the Hudson River Valley Art workshops and makes our program the best value you’ll find!


Greenville Arms 1889 Inn has 15 unique guest rooms with private bathrooms and air conditioning. If you require a ground floor room, it is important to let us know when you enroll; it may not be possible to change your room assignment at a later date. All other room requests are considered when possible but absolutely cannot be guaranteed. If you plan to come alone, and would like a roommate, let us know and we will try to match you with one.


Served in the charming dining rooms of Greenville Arms 1889 Inn, meals are a special experience. We strive to provide a delicious, healthful menu, with an emphasis on fresh ingredients and nutritional balance. At breakfast you will have a wide choice from a full menu. At dinner, everyone is served the same 3 course meal, different each night. We can usually accommodate people with dietary restrictions if we are given advance notice of your specific needs.
