Jersey City Art School
Local artists congregate at Jersey City Art School—not just to teach, but to learn. Through four- and eight-week class sequences, as well as occasional one-time workshops, artists of all skill levels flesh out their portfolios, hone existing techniques, or try out entirely new disciplines. The sessions run the gamut of styles, from digital photography and pottery to painting with watercolors or a bunch of Capri Sun flavors.
