Art School for International Students in Fort Lee, NJ
At our art school for international students in Fort Lee, NJ, we take a strategic approach to art. We have children of all ages who study the fundamentals of the art process, perspective, and proportion. Students train their eye to observe and render as they create beautiful works that showcase what they’ve learned. Our teachers inspire and encourage their students to express themselves and to engage their creativity, develop a unique style, and use their acquired skills.
We work with small groups and flexible schedules so we can execute individualized learning. Our instructors have extensive backgrounds in fine art, with BA's and MFA's in the fields. In addition to being educators, they are also artists themselves, with careers in the field of fine and applied arts. Since we’re an art school for international students, we speak several languages to ensure everyone can understand the world of art. Many of our students are from immigrant families of all backgrounds, making our student body a diverse mix of children and teens aged 4-17.
