Independent Study & Teen Intensive Art Classes in Hoboken 2020-2021

In accordance with safety guidelines the maximum combined number for all three classes is 12 students to ensure that each student has their own desk and is able to be socially distanced.

Staff  and students will be asked to wash their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds prior to entering the studio. Hand Sanitizer will be provided.

Urban Arts will take each child’s temperature.

Face masks are required to be worn in the Studio

All supplies will be cleaned and disinfected between uses. We will minimize sharing of materials as much as possible.

All surfaces, desks, tables, chairs etc. will be cleaned and disinfected between classes, using products that meet EPA disinfection criteria and will not be done when children are present.

Students should bring their own smocks or wear clothes that are appropriate for art-making.  Urban Arts will no longer provide smocks in keeping with safety practices.


Independent Study/Teen Intensive classes are taught by two instructors who guide students to develop their own ideas.

Students will:

  • Cultivate eye-to-hand coordination
  • Improve observational and technical skills
  • Develop a series of images which reflect their creative interest
  • Acquire knowledge and skill in the media of their choice
  • Create a portfolio which may be presented for admission to an institution of higher learning
