Around the Corner Art Center Reviews
Around the Corner Art Center NJ
With locations in Freehold and Morganville, Around the Corner Art Center has provided Central NJ with art classes for many years. Students of all ages and skill levels, children and adults, beginners and experts, are welcome to take part in one of the art studio’s many classes.
Around the Corner Art Center's Studio
The children’s paint class is excellent if you are looking to have your child express their creativity and have fun while learning. They will first learn the basics of painting, including what colors are created when mixed together, the types of brushes to use and, of course, how painting is individualized and unique to each person. Step-by-step instructions will be given so they can create a drawing, paint it on a canvas and frame the piece during the course of the class.
Adult painting classes are more advanced. Students use different mediums such as acrylic, oil and watercolors to enhance their design and express a specific mood in their work. If you participate in this painting class you will learn how to lead your eye to see color distribution and how the design of your painting will be affected as well as various painting techniques and some art history. Instructors give individualized attention and advise to students when walking the room and examining each piece.
CLAY AND CERAMICS
The clay and ceramics art classes this Central NJ studio offers are a fun way to get kids excited about art. Each child creates a 3-dimensional sculpture and will also be taught how to use the potters wheel. While basic hand techniques are taught to beginners, more experienced sculptors will focus on detailed surface designs and glazing techniques.
For the fashionistas of the Freehold and Morganville area, Around the Corner Art Center offers various design classes. You can take a fashion sewing class and learn the basics of sewing and creating clothing or you can take their fashion illustration class and learn how to put your ideas on paper. This art studio even offers a jewelry making class where students of any age can create their own accessories.
If you are looking to introduce yourself to the art studio and become acquainted with the staff, consider attending one of their workshops. These sessions, usually offered in the afternoons or evenings, will allow all ages to learn about something that interests them. While these workshops are continuously rotating, popular ones include painting, anime, clay and drawing. You can check the website
for a list of upcoming events and activities.
Themes include pottery, painting, anime, cartooning, drawing, ceramics, sculpting and even fashion design! It doesn’t matter what your child’s interest is, they can plan a party around it, doing something they enjoy. Everyone at the party is sure to have a good time. While you bring the cake to these parties, Around the Corner Art Center will provide pizza and party favors for an additional charge.
During a pottery party, children will get to choose a piece of pottery to paint, allowing them to express their creativity.
Anime or Cartooning Parties:
With the assistance of an anime instructor, party goers will learn how to draw their favorite characters. The guest of honor will be allowed to pick which character they want to draw. They will have their choice between Mario, Superman, Batman, Avatar, Spiderman and many more!
You choose your favorite subject and Around the Corner Art Center’s staff will show the party goers how to create a masterpiece. Each child will be given a canvas, paint and the opportunity to display their imagination for the world to see.
A subject such as animals, flowers, landscapes, cartoons or cars is selected and each child learns how to draw something from that category. An instructor will give step-by-step instructions so children will understand the process and, by the time they leave, the drawings will be ready to be displayed in your home.
Each child will create a sculpture of choice using only “Sculpey” clay and their imagination. They will be shown various clay building techniques as well as color combinations by a trained instructor and then be given the freedom to sculpt their own masterpiece.
Fashion Design Parties:
The little fashionistas who attend this party will be treated to a one-of-a-kind fashion class taught by a professional fashion designer who lives in NJ. Children will be allowed to put together their very own design sketch as they draw inspiration from various fashion figures and clothing options.
Campers between the ages of 5 – 13 will be placed in Around the Corner Art Center’s children’s camp. In this summer program, kids will learn various drawing, painting and sculpting techniques. They will be given hands-on experiences and can take part in one of Around the Corner Art Center's weekly programs. Around the Corner Art Center offers summer classes that teach painting, sculpture, watercolor, drawing, cartooning, charcoal and more!
The teen camp program offered at Around the Corner Art Center focuses primarily on the finer details and completion of artwork.
