It’s just past one o’clock on Tuesday afternoon at CCV Newport. Students are at work in the Learning Center, instructors are beginning the day’s lessons, and staff goes about handling the logistics of day-to-day life at the College. This would be a typical day at the center, save for what’s going on in the corner classroom that looks out over Lake Memphremagog.
Hallmarks of the CCV experience are small classes and practicing professional instructors who bring real-world applications to their teaching. This spring CCV offers 25 art courses at centers throughout the state and online. Students who enroll in the “introduction” classes explore a new area of study, and often also get to experience how working artists apply their craft in daily life.
