RAHWAY — Space is still available in the Kids’ Summer Art Workshops at Arts Guild New Jersey. The program is offered as five-day art workshops for children ages 7 – 12 in Drawing, Painting, Printmaking and Sculpture.

Each class runs for 90 minutes daily, Monday – Friday.  The fee for one five-day class is $50.  Children may take up to four classes per session.  Class projects differ from week to week. There are four sessions: July 19 – July 23, July 26 – July 30, August 2 – August 6, and August 9 – August 13.


These five-day classes can introduce your child to thinking artistically in two- and three-dimensions, using a wide range of materials. Drawing is offered from 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM. Children will work on fun projects, like self-portraits, landscapes and pictures of animals, using pencil, charcoal, pastel and ink.

In the Painting workshop, students explore color as they make their own paintings using a variety of materials like tempera, watercolor and acrylic paints, and techniques. Painting is offered from 10:45 AM to 12:15 PM.

In the Printmaking workshop, kids create multiples of their original artwork through the unique process of printmaking. Pencil drawings on foam plates and mixed media collages are inked and printed onto paper. Paintings on plexiglass are transferred to paper and can be embellished with drawing materials. Printmaking is offered from 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM.

Creating three dimensional works in the Sculpture workshop is a very different and wonderful hands-on experience.  Children will work with wood, wire, recycled materials and air-dry clay to build free-standing or wall-hanging sculptures.  Sculpture is offered from 2:15 PM to 3:45 PM.

Classes are taught by competent, experienced instructors in a stimulating and educational setting, and all materials are provided. Assignments are designed to be fun and inspiring; the complexity of the project is tailored to the age and abilities of each child.  Because projects and instructors vary from week to week, students are able to take one or more workshops during multiple sessions and have different experiences.

Class space is limited so early registration is encouraged to ensure enrollment. To register for classes, call 1-732-381-7511, email or visit to view the online catalog and/or pay by credit card.  To register in person, visit Arts Guild New Jersey during office hours, at 1670 Irving Street, Rahway. (Use the parking lot entrance.)  Office hours are: Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, 9:00 AM – NOON and 1:00 – 4:00 PM.
