Our Fine Arts program is structured through an open studio concept, specializing in dynamic small classes that promote 100% freedom of your child's creativity at all times. Your children will enter the world of a professional art studio, mentored by nationally recognized pop artist Perry Milou, (www.perrymilou.com). A great emphasis is placed on drawing and painting from life. Our unique eight-foot drawing wall is a perfect, larger than life sketch pad than will shapen your child's fundamental artistic skills. The studio's curriculum includes the study of color theory, design, composition, and experimental techniques. Our talented staff is enthusiastic and comprised of professional artists who specialize in their own diverse mediums. Children are also granted the freedom of choosing from one of over 50 3-d art projects. These prototypes range in theme from art history to pop art culture. The projects act as real inspirational models from which your child's visions can flourish. 

Young girls love making  Flower Power Art especially in the spring time. In creating this fabulous project, the kids painted foam plates on both sides using acrylics. They then designed the flowers by drawing on the plates and cutting out their designs. We used bristol board for the leaves and and inner circles , which were then embellished with beads and sequins.Thin dowl rods were cut to form stems. I gave the children real empty wine bottles to paint for vases. After painting, we will hand cut beautiful prints from decorative cocktail napkins and decoupage the images on the bottles. A beautiful mothers day gift!

HEARTLAND BALL FEB 12, 2012

HEARTLAND BALL GALA FEB 12, 2012.....RUMSON COUNTY DAY SCHOOL ANNUAL FUNDRAISER.

This past year an old college friend reached out to me in quest of my artistic direction in developing a project for her sons school to raise money at their annual gala. The 2012 theme being The American Heartland. I quickly remembered an old painting that i created years ago that was inspired by Frank Sinatra's 1946 anthem ''The House I live in" , commonly known as "What is America To Me" . It was the perfect fit. I assembled a 3 panel triptych 15 feet/4 feet , and drew (coloring-book style) Sinatra'a portrait and the entire lyrics of the song. My part was complete as now over 400 plus children from the school painted in the collaboration. The end result s a fabulous free spirited triptych that sold for over $3000.00 at auctions end!

if you are not familiar with Sinatra's song,please copy the link and listen, every American should know this song, it is incredible and still bring gooosebumps to my skin upon hearing it ,especially in this tenuious and fragile society that we live in today. There is a great lesson of patriotism and simplicity of love  and life for all of us to learn!
