The Greenbrier, a classic American resort that was reimagined in 1946 by famed interior designer Dorothy Draper, is now offering its guests the opportunity to enroll in the Dorothy Draper School of Decorating.

The class will offer interior design enthusiasts the opportunity to learn first-hand from the designers behind such American interiors as the Grand Hotel in Mackinac Island, MI and the Carlyle Hotel, NY.

Course-loads are specifically designed by Carleton Varney, who is Draper’s protege, president of Dorothy Draper and Company, and curator of The Greenbrier. Classes will be spent studying concepts such as “Creating the Wow Factor,” “Tools & No Rules,” and “Around the House, Around the World,” as well as many more.

Included in your clients’ tuition is 20 hours of class time spread throughout six days, plus afternoon tea and special receptions. The Dorothy Draper School of Decorating is available with limited enrollment through the spring and summer of 2012, beginning on the dates of Feb. 26, March 25, April 29 and June 10.

The enrollment fee for the Dorothy Draper School of Decorating is $5,000 pp. A package option is also available at The Greenbrier starting at $1,847, which includes 5-night accommodations, roundtrip airport transfers, breakfast, lunch and group receptions.
