How Do I Choose the Right Course?

To assist you in your selection, level information is provided with each course description. If you are unsure of your skill level, please contact Administrative Director Melissa Pazcoguin at 201-767-7160 or

Beginner - Basic skill level with limited or no experience. Classes introduce and develop new skills and techniques.

Intermediate - Student has enough knowledge of medium, technique and processes to begin developing a personal voice or vision. Supportive guidance will encourage continued growth.

Advanced - Student has demonstrated a level of mastery that allows for independence and a personal vision for their art. He/she is seeking an environment with other artists that further defines and supports the direction of their work.

Open Studio Time

Drawing studio time with a model is available on Saturday mornings (short and long poses), and painting & drawing studio time with a model is available on Friday evenings each semester (long poses only). Membership is not required to participate; students may sign up for the semester or attend and pay per diem. The complete course descriptions for these studio times can be found in the drawing and painting sections of our catalog.

Ceramic studio time is available to students enrolled in our adult ceramic classes. Students must sign in before going to work in the studio and then sign out and pay at the front desk before leaving ($2.50 per hour). Bulk studio time cards are available for purchase at the desk (at a discount of $60 for 30 hours).

Please call or check at the front desk for any exceptions to the posted studio time schedules.

Youth Programs

Our Young Artists Program serves students age 4 to 15. All of the classes are designed to encourage the discovery of creativity, with emphasis on process rather than product. The program offers opportunities for children to explore a variety of art forms in a fun, creative and exciting environment. We also offer Special Education Art Experience throughout the year, tailored to children with physical and developmental disabilities. During the summer, our Blast of Art program offers two separate week-long art experiences for children age 6 and up.
