Drop-In Studio

Creative sparks fly at the Montclair Art Museum’s Yard School of Art, with classes and camps designed and taught by professional artists and educators.

We are a collaborative and supportive community where artists of all ages, abilities, and skill levels discover passions and kindle connections in the studios and Museum galleries.

This vibrant hub is where artists come to share, explore, grow, and emerge transformed.



See the Yard School Policies and Procedures for complete health and safety information.
