WHY ONE RIVER?

Founded in 2012, “one river” west of New York City, One River School® has developed a unique method for teaching art and digital design classes to people of all ages and all levels. Today, our innovative program teaches thousands of students in fourteen locations across the US.

At One River School, our students simply have more fun learning to create and produce compelling art. It is our belief that we are transforming art education®, as well as providing an experience that changes lives in the communities that we serve.

SAFETY FIRST

LIMITED CLASS SIZES & SOCIAL DISTANCING
We have reduced capacity to 50% in each studio to allow for maximum safety and still provide a high-quality experience. Studios have been arranged to ensure that students and staff are positioned no less than 6 feet apart at all times.

MASKS REQUIRED
Students and staff are required to wear masks at all times when attending One River School. This is an essential safety feature that is required for all.

ENHANCED CLEANING PROTOCOLS
We have installed rigorous standards to sanitize and disinfect throughout the day, while requiring students and staff to vigorously wash hands constantly.

OUR EXPERIENCE

INNOVATIVE CURRICULUM WITH A CONTEMPORARY FOCUS
One River has developed a unique project-based curriculum that is rooted in using the lessons learned from the most compelling living artists to create a fun and relevant educational experience for our students.

FUN FIRST
It’s our belief that students work harder because we make sure that we have fun throughout the process. Art is best created within a group that shares a common passion for art-making and the interactivity that we stimulate generates a dynamic bond and helps to produce new friendships.

SELECTIVE HIRING PROCESS
Our instructors most often are masters level educators and practicing artists. They demonstrate a passion for quality student outcomes and can provide group instruction and individualized coaching to help students reach their goals.
