'Fantastic Fall' the theme of the art competition for 10-18 year olds.

We are very proud of our student Shakira who was announced as a winner of the art competition and received $100 gift card. 

Art education is very important for kids. It's not only about creativity but also about academic achievement. “A report by Americans for the Arts states that young people who participate regularly in the arts (three hours a day on three days each week through one full year) are four times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement, to participate in a math and science fair or to win an award for writing an essay or poem than children who do not participate.” 

Fostering creativity helps your child develop mentally, socially, and emotionally. With art we open many ways for kids to explore themselves and the world around them, we help them gain confidence, enhance their attention to details and develop their problem solving abilities.

Discover your own artistic ability January 19 2018

Experience the joy of drawing and painting - a skill anyone can learn, learn how to draw a landscape, a portrait, interiors, still life and more and it’s never late to start learning.

Like reading and writing, drawing is a fundamental life skill. The ability to see as an artist sees brings a new dimension to self-expression and elevates your skill in countless other activities, from photography, architecture and design to the deeper appreciation of art and nature.


Professional artists have traditionally studied drawing first, as a primary and foundational skills. The art of drawing is eminently learnable. The ability to draw and paint both accurately and expressively does not depend on innate talent - anyone can learn how to draw and paint. In our studio we help kids build the complete, integrated skill of drawing and painting and apply those skills on different surfaces. We teach to apply the same fundamental principles that professional artists routinely use in their drawings and paintings so kids learn how to represent what they see in front of them and in their mind’s eyes.


Adults are also welcome to our painting studio in Rutherford, we offer not only step-by-step instructions where you can master your ability or just open your inner artistic skills or/and practice your newly acquired skill of painting on a canvas but also relax and have fun with your friends while sipping a glass of wine.


Knowing how to paint and draw is an ability with rewards that last for a life time.

Still Life project, Creative Art classes for Kids December 12 2017

“If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint’, then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.”  - Vincent Van Gogh


Children of all ages learn drawing principles such as line, tone, proportion and the fundamentals of composition at our creative art classes. They develop keen observational skills and learn how to depict accurately a range of still life objects. They are always encouraged to see things their own imaginative way to relish colors and to build confidence by developing and putting into practice good technique. 

What is still life?

It is simply a painting or drawing of inanimate objects. It is different from other forms of figurative work in the sense that it cannot move (unlike a figure or a portrait) and it is close to you (unlike a landscape).

This time as a set up we used two different pieces of cloth to create some variation. Then, a collection of objects such as a vase, flowers and fruit were arranged in an interesting way to create different prospective.


Drawings were made on canvas and then acrylic paint applied using a variety of mark making tools to create lively and exciting still life images.

When you paint or draw a still life, one person might be fascinated to a small detail, another might pay attention to the shapes, or might be more interested in the colors. Here is how our students of different ages visioned it.

Giving children the opportunity to draw from observation is an important part of their learning in art. It’s not too late to provide your kids with the head start they deserve and sign them up with our Art Classes

Painting therapy in Rutherford, NJ September 29 2016

Painting as stress relief at Paint Zone Art Studio in Rutherford, NJ


Better Days are coming, they are called Saturdays and Sundays. How many times did you hear it before?


Today, we are all no strangers to stress. Work, deadlines, trips, meetings, commute, all of it can wreak havoc on our productivity if we don’t treat it. That is why most of us love Fridays. That is the best time when you go out with your friends, family, drink, sing, play, eat, laugh or just watch TV at home and relief your stress.


There is one more simple way that can help relax in our busy everyday life - Painting therapy, which encourages creativity and self expression as engines to reduce stress. Paint and Wine or Paint and Sip classes are a fun alternative to usual nights out. Painting, just like many of the arts, is therapeutic. It provides a conduit to emotional release.


I know you will ask where is the “fun” part? Well, how about you get to socialize with friends while you paint, drink and eat? Moreover, you will create your own masterpiece with the help of an instructor and the most important part you’ll get to explore your inner creative voice while turning off the negative influences that so often get in the way.


Try it out at Paint Zone Art Studio in Rutherford, NJ and you won’t regret. Simply bring your adventurous spirit, love of fun and creative desire.
