Since 1982, Hudson River Valley Art Workshops (HRVAW) has been welcoming artists and instructors from around the world to the historic Greenville Arms 1889 Inn to learn, create, and relax! At our facility you'll find an all inclusive setting of a 24-hour climate-controlled art studio, unique lodging, and on-site meals in the beautiful Hudson River Valley region of Upstate New York.

Our family-run arts center hosts 15 rooms with private baths and the majority feature house-made quilts, providing a feeling of home most other venues can't match. Workshops are hosted from March through December of each year and include everything from traditional painting techniques to mixed media abstract art to a wide range of fiber and art quilt options.
