The Clearing offers year-long educational opportunities in three programs: the Summer Program, the Workshop Program and the Winter Program. These programs offer a wide range of classes, including painting, writing, quilting, birding, wood carving, poetry, rustic furniture making, photography, poetry, fine wood-working, music, weaving, philosophy, stained glass, metal work, nature study and paper arts. All Clearing classes are taught in a relaxed, informal style.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, a new Clearing program was created: the Retreat Program. Retreats allow guests to create their own Clearing experience.
