Artistic Expressions – An Open Studio for People with Special Needs since 1990

We will set you up with what you want to do:


Each semester ends with a celebration and an exhibition of all the work you’ve made that term

Artist Jim Pruznick leads this open studio class for adults and teens with developmental disabilities, in which art making topics are tailored to new and returning students, and include drawing, painting, sculpting, mixed media, and fiber arts.  What do we mean by “open studio?”  Open studio means it’s all about choice.  Our students are presented with a variety of materials and are encouraged to express their own vision in this fun, supportive class. The instructor presents the materials and how to use them; but the students are in charge of making their own art – they make all the creative choices.

“Artistic Expression” is an art class with creative, therapeutic and social objectives. We think art is good for you – building skills, dexterity and self esteem.  If you think that art is good for you too and would like to learn more, please give us a call in the Education Department 908-735-8415 x. 119.   Registration is now open HERE.
