Art Workshops Overview

Our goal at the Hudson River Valley Art Workshops is to provide you the opportunity to explore new techniques and materials by bringing you together with today's top professional teachers in an environment that is safe, comfortable, inspiring, and most of all - FUN!

The Workshop Studio

The workshops are held in the Carriage House Studio. It is a spacious facility with excellent lighting. Available for your use during the workshops are foam core design wall boards, 24" x 18" light box, and an in-studio sink.

The studio is open 24 hours, so you can continue working on projects as long as you like.

The Carriage House, besides housing the studio, also has 9 of the guest rooms and is surrounded by extensive gardens, lawns, and woods - perfect for stretching your legs and getting some fresh air during a workshop.

The Main Inn is where the dining rooms are located, as well as 5 of the guest rooms. It is located just across the parking lot from the Carriage House, so everything is close by.

The Food

Breakfast features a full short-order menu, in additon to a fruit, yogurt, and cereal buffet. You can choose anything from buttermilk pancakes, french toast, fried eggs, scrambled eggs, or poached eggs - and sides of maple bacon or sausage. The hot dishes are made to your order and served to you by our friendly waitstaff.

In the afternoon, freshly baked cookies are available in the dining rooms.

Dinner is a fixed 3-course gourmet meal. Usually starting with soup or a salad, followed by the main dish, and then dessert. Freshly baked bread is served every night and all dishes are made from scratch, including the desserts! Everyone is served the same meal.

We are experienced and understanding about handling all sorts of dietary restrictions, as long as we are notified in advance so that we have time to prepare alternate dishes.

The inn has an extensive reasonably priced wine and beer menu to further enhance your meals. Everyone enjoys gathering in our parlors or on the front porch, in good weather, before and after dinner.

The Lodging

Greenville Arms 1889 Inn has been home to the Hudson River Valley Art Workshops since 1982, but has been a bed and breakfast welcoming guests since the early 1950's.

The guest rooms have private bathrooms, individually controlled A/C and heating, a mini-fridge, and daily housekeeping service!

guest rooms at the Greenville Arms

There are no TVs in the guest rooms (who needs them when you are having so much fun with everyone in the workshop). However, there is Wi-Fi access throughout the property.
