About Artistic Expressions

Artist Jim Pruznick leads this open studio class designed for adults and teens with special needs, physical limitations, developmental disabilities, and/or any neurodiversity. Art-making topics are tailored to new and returning students and include drawing, painting, sculpting, mixed media, and fiber arts.

What do we mean by “open studio?”  Open studio means it’s all about choice. Students are presented with a variety of materials and are encouraged to express their own vision in a fun and supportive environment. The instructor presents the materials and how to use them, but the students are in charge of making their own art — and all the creative choices!

Artistic Expressions and similar programs are made possible by grants from Janssen PharmaceuticalsInvestors Foundation, and donations by generous individuals.

Show Your Support

In addition to inspiring people with our classes, we spark imaginations with world-class art installed on our terrace and in our galleries. We maintain the beautiful stone mill that deepens your ties with the past and provide a gathering place for your family and friends on the Toshiko Takaezu Terrace.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation so that we may continue educating, challenging, and inspiring community through the arts.

Programs are made possible in part by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts; The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation; Hunterdon County Board of County Commissioners, through funds administered by the Cultural & Heritage Commission; Hyde and Watson Foundation; Union Foundation; The Large Foundation; and BLICK Art Materials, along with other corporations, foundations and individuals.  The Hunterdon Art Museum is a wheelchair-accessible space.  Publications are available in large print.  Patrons who are deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired may contact the Museum through the New Jersey Relay Service at (TTY) 1 (800) 852-7899.

The land upon which Hunterdon Art Museum is located is part of the traditional territory of the Lenni-Lenape, called “Lenapehoking.” We acknowledge the Lenni-Lenape as the original people of this land.
