The whole world is our studio!
Strawtown’s programming is place-based. Wherever we are we are interested in the beauty and workings of the unique area.
We teach from a number of outdoor and indoor studio sites in the lower Hudson Valley, 30 miles from New York City. We also bring our programs on the road to nature centers, schools, events, and community groups. Invite us to your place!
