Our instructors are graduates of highly respected art schools, including: Pratt, Tyler School of Fine Arts, Columbia University, Parsons, Philadelphia College of Art, Cooper Union, CUNY, Rutgers Mason Gross School of the Arts and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. They are working artists with specialties in jewelry, graphic design, digital photography, painting, drawing, ceramics, printmaking, paper making, watercolor and pastel. Their artwork is represented in museums, galleries and corporate collections throughout the country and the world; some are also published authors, others are experienced fine arts lecturers and still others are experts in the business of fine arts. First and foremost, our faculty members are inspired to share their knowledge and love of art with students – true educators who understand that visual arts can shape vision and change lives.
