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; 319 Franklin Turnpike, Allendale, 201-466-1372)
A gallery space (with up and coming artists’ works on display) 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. Classes are broken down by grade and interest for older kids. 
The Art School at Old Church (561 Piermont Road, Demarest, 201-767-7160)
Typically 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. The young artists classes include 4 to teens, with offerings ranging from painting landscapes to clay handbuilding for kids. All materials needed can be purchased from the instructor.  
The Drawing Room (27 Central Avenue, Midland Park, 201-447-7272) 
At the drawing room, artists are encouraged to think (and draw) outside the box. 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 creativity and creation with confidence. 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.
Abrakadoodle (49 Prospect Place, Hillsdale, 201-383-0027; Academy of Our Lady of Grace, 400 Kamena St., Fairview)
Budding artists put their love of art to paper, canvas and more with one of Abrakadoodle’s specialty classes. Kids can explore their creativity through classes including a Twoosy Doodler Mixed Media Art for ages 2-4, Mini Doodler Mixed Media Art for ages 4-6, as well as the Doodler Mixed Media Art for ages 6-10. Going beyond the typical painting class, kids will use a variety of materials, from wire to clay to hone their craft (and help fill your bare walls with colorful artwork!) Abrakadoodle also offers No School Art Workshops on holidays, plus private group classes and parties.
