The Oxbow School is a semester program in Napa, California focusing on studio artmaking and interdisciplinary humanities. This program provides juniors, seniors, and gap-year students the opportunity for an intensive art experience and thought-provoking academic instruction.

The atmosphere at Oxbow is one of artistic and social exploration combined with rigorous academics designed to prepare students for college and beyond. Oxbow alumni often go on to earn distinguished art and writing awards, and earn offers of admission and win scholarships at top colleges and universities.

We invite students to enlarge their artistic vision and enhance their technical skills in an environment dedicated to supporting artistic inquiry. Take this opportunity to further your education, expand your social horizons, explore your passion for art, and create a new foundation for your future!

Oxbow also offers a spirited and engaging summer art program for students ages fourteen to sixteen.
