Dear parents,

Many of you have heard about our program.  We are now entering our tenth year!

We are passionate about art and art education and we offer excellent art classes for students ages 4.5-13.

Our Fall Semester starts this week!

Our program focuses on creativity, experimentation, and skill-building while learning about art movements and artists, and experimenting with different techniques.

Our classes are fun and engaging as we believe that art is a joyful expression of our creativity.

Check out our web site for more information and you can read some testimonials here.

We were mentioned in Mommy Poppins as '30 Fun Things To Do With Your Kids In Jackson Heights.

Details below:


*Fall Semester starts this week!

All regular classes are one hour long. We create a thematic and well-planned curriculum and send weekly emails informing parents about our plan for the week. All classes are taught by artist and educator Deborah Wasserman. Our program is considered by many to be exceptional, and we have students who are now registering for their sixth year.

Portfolio Prep Classes:

Saturdays 11:00-12:30PM.  High School admissions are around the corner!!!!   We have been successfully preparing students for High School admissions in the areas of Film, Fine Arts and Fashion Design. Our students are accepted to schools such as Frank Sinatra, High School of Fashion Industries and La Guardia School of the Arts. We work with each student individually, assessing their talents and needs and then we build an original and unique portfolio, based on the school's requirements.

Private Classes:

We are available to schedule private classes throughout the year.  Please contact us if interested in arranging a meeting to discuss the possibility of a private art class.   We offer portfolio preparation class for teenagers and young adults who are applying for art schools and are seeking to build a strong presentation. We also offer private classes for young students who are interested in more focused, artistic training.
