Welcome to the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey’s Studio School!  Here you will find classes and workshops of all kinds– including drawing, painting, ceramics, photography, digital media, printmaking, sculpture, jewelry design and more. We have classes at all levels, from beginner to advanced, so you’re sure to find what’s right for you. We run on a year-round calendar, with three 10-week sessions—fall, winter and spring—and a shorter 6-week one in the summer. We also offer a popular weekly Summer Camp for children and teens. Need flexibility? Why not try out a workshop? Workshops are a great way to try something new or brush up on skills!
