MILLBURN, NJ - One River School of Art + Design held the grand opening for their new studio in Millburn last weekend, with free art and digital workshops for all ages, tours of One River's state-of-the-art studios and digital suite, and a ribbon cutting on Saturday afternoon.

Millburn Mayor Mayor Cheryl Burstein was there to cut the ribbon, joined by One River's CEO Matt Ross, and Millburn Director Erin Champion and Assistant Director Kristin Stazzone.

"I'm very pleased to have found this location in Millburn, and know that the success we have at our other locations will be replicated here," said Ross.

"It took us a bit longer than expected to get the location open because of the time it took for the process of getting the approvals to change the use of the space from it's previous business to ours, as each is in a totally different classification. However, once approved all moved along smoothly," stated Ross.

Ross explained that One River is an art school with a wide variety of classes, from drawing and painting to digital design and filmmaking. 

"Every day people ask me what makes One River special. I always tell them that we are filling a niche that simply doesn’t exist: the right blend of caring people, a cool space, unique curriculum focused on what is current in art and design, amazing exhibitions and the most committed educators. It is our passion to provide a place for people of all ages to challenge their creative sensibility while having fun," shared Ross.

Champion and Stazzone thanked all for coming and for the wonderful welcome One River has received from the community.

Spring classes are now open at One River, and students can register or learn more at One River Millburn.

One River also has summer camps for students in grades K-12, more information here.
