About the project

SIGN UP FOR FALL WORKSHOPS!
Plein air! Theatrical Monster Makeup! Linocut printing!

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working to save the historic Jester Farmhouse, for local artists of all disciplines and skill levels to use as meeting, working, and gallery space. Jester Artspace, Inc. has partnered with the property owner, New Castle County, Del., to renovate the property. In turn, we will operate the house in a manner of direct benefit to the surrounding community. The Jester Farmhouse has been deemed to be of significant historic value to the people of New Castle County. It is one of the few remaining modest pre-Civil War farmsteads that were once common in Northern Delaware. The house sits amid 25.8 acres of original farmland at 2818 Grubb Road, which is among the oldest colonial-era trade routes in the mid-Atlantic U.S.
Please donate if you can. Your contributions are fully tax-deductible. Our donors receive original, limited-edition, artist-signed prints. Do something good for the arts in Brandywine Hundred and enjoy a piece of original art! If you would like us to stay in touch, you can also join our email list.

What Jill said!

Mark has made this chair from these plans. We love them. They fit each of us comfortably and we do not have the same build. Our favorite chairs in which to sit outside and enjoy a glass of wine. Run. Don’t walk to this workshop.

Charley Parker's plein air workshop has been pushed back a week, so still time to sign up! This class gives a lot of practical instruction to get you going. Techniques include choosing a landscape composition, gouache paint handling, mixing a wide range of colors from a simplified palette, and creating textures for trees, grasses and other landscape elements. jesterartspace.org/signup ...
