What could be more visually appealing than this full palette of art classes and workshops? Best part: the mess happens on their turf, not yours.
One River Art School (49 N Dean Street, Englewood, 201-266-5244)
A loft like gallery space (with up and coming artists’ works on display) on South Dean in Englewood is just one source of inspiration budding artists will find when they attend one of the many classes offered at One River School. Founder Matt Ross’ mission is to give Bergenites a taste of the same amazing creative experiences that are found in NYC. His connections with city curators allows students of all ages and skill-level to work with various mediums and methods in everything from painting to sculpture to digital design. On-going admissions allow ease and flexibility in registering, so you can check it out whenever your kid’s creativity strikes.
Art Brainz Academy (134 Hopper Ave., Waldwick, 201-932-0202)
Whether your child wants to brush up on their painting technique or just wants to have fun making their next ceramic masterpiece for you to display, young budding artists will enjoy the laid back yet informative programs offered at Art Brainz. The variety of classes offered accommodate young beginner and more technically advanced artists. If you have a little one that loves to get creative, their Mommy and me weekend classes is a great way for your child to express themselves artistically through planned arts and crafts activities.
The Art School at Old Church (561 Piermont Road, Demarest, 201-767-7160)
Situated in a 19th century church building, with over 4 working studios and a gallery, The Art School at Old Church gets creative juices flowing. Interested in photography or glass blowing? No problem. One of the school’s professional artists on staff will teach you their craft. This community art school also features “young artists” classes for kids as young as 4 years old in everything from cartooning to pottery-on-the-wheel for your budding creator. Mom’s love the hour and a half sessions which give ample time for the kiddos to let their creativity run wild. 
The Drawing Room (27 Central Avenue, Midland Park, 201-447-7272) 
Drawing in the park to a live flautist playing in the background? Yup they do that here. Passionate owner Christine Zaccardi loves what she does and it shows in her hands-on approach to the ever changing curriculum. No project is repeated and various themes are woven through mediums such as watercolors, clay, paper mache, and printing. Called “excellent” by its clientele, this hidden gem encourages thinking outside the box. The professionally trained staff will also work one-on-one with teens interested in developing a portfolio of work for presentation to an art program. The studio offers classes for all ages and skill levels, including special needs children.
Fashion Camp NJ (434 Hillsdale Ave, Hillsdale, NJ 07642, 201-768-3600) 
If you’re kid likes to shred up her leggings and bling out her tee shirts, then she’ll fit right in at Fashion Camp NJ. Start with a ready to wear piece of clothing from their in-house boutique (think anything from burnout tees to jean jackets), add in accoutrements such as patches, embellishments, lace, rhinestones and more, and now she’s got a hand-made, one-of-a-kind wearable piece of art that probably won’t end up stashed in the back of a drawer.
