It all began in 1972, when a group of visionary artists led by Joyce Johnson launched our creative community in an historic barn, still in active use on the Castle Hill campus.
We’ve grown considerably since then. Now we deliver up to 200 summer workshops at the Castle Hill and Edgewood Farm campuses; off-season, our Artist in Residence program, free workshops for Outer Cape residents and the annual International Encaustic Conference keep our studios and residences buzzing.

This exhibition at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum celebrates Castle HIll’s 50th Anniversary. I have one piece in this show, “Couple Walking, Williamsburg, Brooklyn”. It’s a 24″ x 24″ oil, done in 2017. Am very proud to be a part of this amazing Art Center, Castle Hill. I have been teaching printmaking, painting and exhibiting with them on the Cape for over 15 years. Their director, Cherie Mittenthal, has been doing a terrific job making this artistic haven into such an integral part of the community for artists far and wide.
