Founded in 1926, the duCret School of Art is the oldest arts school in New Jersey.  For 92 years duCret has nurtured many local artists as well as art collectors. The studio-based classroom experience enables students to study basics in composition, design and color theory and to prepare their own professional portfolio. The duCret building in Plainfield, NJ was originally built in 1896 by the George Strong family and was later converted in the 1930's by the Wardlaw School for boys. Since duCret’s purchase of the building in 1970 the house has been a site for the preservation and promotion of fine art.
