One River School

Founded in 2012 in Englewood, NJ, “one river” west of New York City, One River School has embarked on a mission to "transform art education"® in America. Today, our innovative program teaches thousands of students in fourteen locations across six states. The company has developed a unique method for teaching art and digital design classes to people of all ages. Very simply, One River's students have more fun, learn faster and produce more compelling creative outcomes. Our state-of-the-art facilities create an aspirational mindset that inspires our students to tap into their creative spirit. And, our proprietary / original lesson plans allow us to facilitate an educational experience that is differentiated from anyone else. One River also produces exhibitions from world class contemporary artists, which allows us to be the voice of contemporary art in our communities and to enhance our ability to "teach through the lens of living artists." Our team at One River is made up of passionate, mission-oriented art-centric professionals who are motivated to provide hospitality level service to our students. As we grow, One River is focused on becoming the "best place to work in the arts" and also providing business ownership opportunities in the arts via our franchise program.
