WHERE: Hunterdon Art Museum, 7 Lower Center St., Clinton

Artist Jim Pruznick leads this open studio class for adults and teens with developmental disabilities, in which art making topics are tailored to new and returning students, and include drawing, painting, sculpting, mixed media, woodworking, photography and fiber arts.
An open studio class gives students the opportunity to experiment with a variety of materials and mediums and to create art at their own pace and skill level. Two instructors and a maximum class size of 10 students means each student receives individualized attention while working in a fun and supportive environment.

“Artistic Expressions is a class with creative, therapeutic and social objectives,” noted Jennifer Brazel, education director at the Hunterdon Art Museum. “And it’s the perfect way to build skills, dexterity and self-esteem.”

The scholarships were established through donations received by the Museum. Artistic Expressions is made possible in part by a grant from Investors Foundation.
