At Sharron Art Center, our mission is to give our students the best in art education. Since 1997, we have specialized in K-12 art education and we welcome aspiring artists of all kinds. Whether art is a primary interest or a just a hobby, we encourage students of any skill level to further develop their abilities by providing them with the foundations they need to excel.
With our guidance, our students have been recognized in both international and national art contests for their paintings and drawings. We believe in providing equal opportunities to all of our students. Our highly experienced instructors will be able to assist with each student’s individual goals and needs, whether it is to build up a resume and portfolio or to simply give a boost of confidence.
Sharron Art Center can be found in various locations in New Jersey and New York. Beginning in 2015, we have also expanded our borders to China.

Students are given their own specialized curriculum to ensure that they learn all the skills they need — at their own pace. Whether they have no prior experience in art or they have been drawing for several years, we can determine the best route to take to make sure that our students learn comfortably no matter their age and skill level.
Instructors at Sharron Art Center are all highly passionate about art and have pursued studies in prestigious fine arts programs. We see our instructors not just as teachers, but as mentors that are interested in helping your child achieve their goals.
Sharron Art Center offers both weekday and weekend classes all year-round. Classes are held on a weekly basis, with three semesters available for registration: Spring (January to June), Summer (July to August), and Fall (September to December). Registration typically begins at the start of each school semester, but we are flexible to other arrangements and will be glad to accommodate to your schedule.
The Summer Enrichment Program is perfect for those who want more practice or want to take advantage of summer vacation from regular school classes to further their art education. Students who want to deepen their skills can focus on building a solid foundation. Students who have achieved a high skill level can focus on expanding their creativity. With even just a few weeks of intensive training, students can have an amazing leap in skill, creative thinking, and confidence.

We go beyond ensuring the quality of each portfolio piece by offering comprehensive and individual consultation on applying to art school.
