History & Ongoing Growth
With help from the Museum of Modern Art, it quickly became an acclaimed school with classes taught by the recognized artists. Ten years later the Art Center moved to Tenafly, NJ and moved again in 1984 to its current location in New Milford where it continues to offer classes in the fine arts from the kindergarten ages to senior citizens, amateurs and professionals. Its classes are accredited by the New Jersey department of education as continuing education credits for professional development for art teachers.
The main floor painting studio, gallery and photography darkroom classroom, office and restroom are all completely wheelchair accessible. The fully equipped stone and wood sculpture studio is unique in this area. The Art Center has completely equipped print making studio with flat table light unit for photographic plate exposure. Its diverse programs range from calligraphy and collage to professionally guided museum & gallery tours. Its Gallery mounts year round exhibitions including an annual Black History Exhibit, National Juried Show, Bergen County Diversity Show, Senior Artists Show and invitational shows for emerging and established artists.
The Art Center sponsors affiliate groups in painting, printmaking, sculpture and watercolor – a total of over 100 practicing artists – offering them facilities in which to work, discuss and exhibit.
