The Work-Study Program at Snow Farm is an opportunity for students, artists and craftspeople (ages 18+) to work at Snow Farm in various capacities in exchange for tuition-free workshops, housing, and meals when the dining hall is open. Now it its second year, we would like to introduce some of the dynamic people who have joined the Snow Farm community as work-study participants.
This year, after the long months of 2020, the light-filled days of summer feel extra special. Before the pandemic, we chose illumination as the topic of our 2021 theme week, August 22 - 27. Now it feels just right to end the summer with seven workshops explorng Bright Ideas: Illumination & Craft. We hope you'll join us!
