Local artists now have an opportunity to learn from more than 100 artists and instructors from around the world at the Winchester School of Fine Art, a privately owned international fine art instructional institute that opened at 10 Park St. on July 2. The school offers instructional art classes, art workshops, and courses in drawing, painting, and mixed media. Artists of all ages and abilities are welcome, according to owner Steven Mood. During the summer, the school is offering Open Studio, a mentoring program for artists in two age groups: 9 to 12, and 13 to 17. “We’re trying to introduce them to a lot of different art styles, so they can develop their own creative style,” Mood said. At the end of the month, the school will award two $2,000 scholarships, one per age group, Mood said. Winners will be selected based not only on their artwork, but also on their creative thinking, he said. The scholarship can be used toward instructional classes and studio time at the school, which provides space for artists who may not have a studio of their own.
