Rated as one of the best in the Washington Area
The Yellow Barn Studio was founded in 1994 as Walter Bartman's painting residency at Glen Echo Park. It is an ideal choice for both the beginner and experienced student seeking a place where they can grow as an artist. Classes are offered in Watercolor, Oil, Acrylic, Drawing & Printmaking.

Exhibitions: Gallery open 12 - 5 pm on weekends


There will be an exhibit of about 60 paintings by 17 artists at the Yellow Barn Studio on April 27 and 28 from 11 am to 6 pm. Many of us have been painting for a long time using a variety of media, and some of us have exhibited before in local galleries.

We are 17 artists taking part in this exhibit and we were all part of a plein-air class led by Walt Bartman in the Spring of 2018, as he has done year in and year out. We found inspiration in sites both in Maryland and Virginia, where we often would interpret the same subject quite differently.

We are inviting the public to come to the exhibit, and join us for a reception on April 28 from 4 to 6 pm. Glen Echo Park is located at 7300 MacArthur Blvd., Glen Echo, MD 20812.
