ArtMill in the Czech Republic

ArtMill lies in the heart of Central Europe, in the Bohemian countryside, on a lake, in the Czech Republic. Dating back to the 16th century, the 'Červeny mlýn' (Red Mill) is surrounded by agricultural land, and rolling hills. Under continual renovation, this family-run complex is forever expanding on the surrounding grounds, workshops and barn.

Fresh food from the garden and fields give the students lunch each day, as well as providing first hand experience in Agriculture, Herbal Lore and Crafts, and Organic Cooking. As the Mill is "green", we pass on this environmental awareness in every hour of the day at . All visitors have a chance to participate in a working farm, collecting eggs from the chickens or milking the goat, and interact with and draw the other animals that live there also: ponies, doves, dogs, cats and, of course, rabbits.

From May to October each year ArtMill provides programs for University Students, High School groups, and children with a variety of workshops, classes, and a summer camp. There are now four Artist-in-Residencies offered each summer, as well as retreats for cultural and environmentally based groups. A wide variety of classes are offered in Art, Music, Languages, and Dance, as well as Horseback riding, Swimming, and Photography, to name a few.
