The Visual Arts Center of New Jersey offers Open Studios to our adult members and students during each semester. Our nine state-of-the-art studios have scheduled availability for artists to continue their creative process in a fully equipped studio. Open Studio Subscriptions are only available to current adult students and teen students who have received permission from the Director of Studio School. Members with verifiable experience in our studios may also use Open Studios except in Ceramics. You must be enrolled in a class in Ceramics to use the Open Studios. Unlimited open studio time is available by subscription per semester, meaning you can use every available Open Studio time slot assigned to your department. Each semester, we will reissue the Open Studio times as they are dependent upon regularly scheduled classes.

  • Ceramics: $275 per semester (only for currently enrolled students to ensure quality service)
  • Digital: $250 per semester
  • Jewelry: $225 per semester
  • Printmaking: $170 per semester
  • Sculpture/Mixed Media: $170 per semester
  • Drawing & Painting: $120 per semester
  • Drop-Ins: $10 per hour for all but $5 per hour for Drawing/Painting
  • Late subscriptions: case-by-case evaluation to see what is most fair to the student

Open Studios are subject to change or cancellation at the Art Center’s discretion. Please call to confirm there is an Open Studio before you come.
