Winter Shut-Down

Stephen G. Maniatty, RAA member 1946-1984, oil on canvas, RAA Museum Collection

During the months of January and February, we will be in our Winter Shut-Down and our galleries will be closed to the public.

Should you have questions for the staff regarding winter and spring classes, sketch groups, or the auction, there will be staff here during the week  as we prepare for our exciting 2016 exhibitions and events.

For auction questions, please contact Margaret Redington at auction@rockportartassn.org

See you in the Spring!

Friday Figure Configurations!

Our Friday Figure “sketch” group meets from 1 – 4 pm. It starts with short poses, and then settles into one long pose. As always, artists are encouraged to participate using any medium of their choosing in drawing, painting, sculpture.  There is no instructor and no need to pre-register. $15 per class.

Spring Front Desk Volunteers Needed

Are you a people person? Do you love art, Rockport, and helping visitors?  Then give us a call!  We are looking for reliable volunteers who can sit at our front desk, answer the phone, greet and assist visitors, and process sales starting in March 2016.

Volunteers would cover at least one 4 hour shift (10am – 1:30pm, or, 1:30pm – 5pm) on a weekly basis.  If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, please email us at info@rockportartassn.org, or call us at 978-546-6604, and we’ll have our Volunteer Coordinator get in touch with you.


Our Friday Figure Drawing Group is always looking for models.  The group meets in the RAA Studio Fridays, 1-4pm. Please contact us if you are interested.
