Visual Arts Center of NJ Launches New Winter Break Mini-Session in December


SUMMIT, NJ - The Visual Arts Center of New Jersey in Summit is debuting a new Winter Break Mini-Session, a four-day art class for adults and kids looking to sample an art class and fast track their skills.

The Winter Break Mini-Session will be held over the winter holiday break, December 28-31. Those interested can sign-up for a super-condensed mini-session and get a month’s worth of classes in just a week. Classes include digital photography: imaging and editing, drawing and perspective and landscape painting in acrylic or oil. 

Kids in the Let’s Build It! Mixed Media and Sculpture mini-class will create magical 3-D snow globes of winter scenes, festive hand-made bowls, and build their very own frozen friend, using crafts to make a snowman. Also offered for kids and teens: A Little Bit of Everything! (ages 9-12) and Team Sculpture! (ages 11-15).
