Choosing Your Own Path
Once our students complete their basic classes, they have the ability to choose their own path. We allow the students to choose their own projects and we will present them with various lessons within the selected piece of art.
At Garden State Art Studio, each student receives an individually developed curriculum based on their needs as a student.
Our professional instructors provide each student with individual attention specific to their age and artistic level.
We begin our students at just five years old, where we cover the basic fundamental of drawing and painting.
Our instructors have experience in various different genres of art including; figure drawing, anatomy, comic book art, sketching, portraits, illustration, magna, anime, cartooning, and more.
We provide classes in acrylic and watercolor painting as well!
Commission Artwork Services
Garden State Art Studio offers commission work services, as well. We cover everything from portraits and custom paintings, to automotive customization and custom skateboard decks.
Design logos, t- shirt designs, custom I Pad covers, furniture, custom mailboxes, helmets, monogram items, custom residential murals and business murals, character cut outs, and so much more! If you have an idea we can do it!
