MAM Instructor Spotlight: Oscar Peterson


Oscar Peterson's Upcoming Class: Life Drawing


Meet one of MAM's dedicated art instructors!

Oscar Peterson has worked as a professional art director and designer/illustrator for various corporations and non-profits, and as a commissioned fine arts painter who specializes in portraiture. Peterson mostly paints from life, using traditional methods and techniques while incorporating new ideas and personal observations. His approach echoes a favorite quote from Alberto Giacometti; “The object of art is not to reproduce reality, but to create a reality of the same intensity.”

Take a class with Oscar this summer. He will be teaching the adult class, Life Drawing.




Embracing Community: Celebrating Partnerships at Cornerstone Café


Support MAM


Since its opening in 2022, the Cornerstone Café has become a beloved fixture of weekends at MAM. The Café is made possible thanks to our partnerships with Cornerstone Montclair, Java Love Coffee Roasting Co., Jewish Vocational Services, and the Montclair High School Transition Program.

Serving the community alongside community partners is fundamental to the Museum’s mission as we strive to create an accessible and welcoming environment for all.

Help us keep partnerships like these thriving by supporting MAM today.
