“Many wonderful art classes ….Take one.

– Student, John Vierno, April 5, 2014

“Art Lab has created a very special art class. The environment is stimulating, but very relaxed, and ensures that children of all ages and abilities are totally free to express themselves in a wide variety of mediums. My daughter Kayla has been going for 3 semesters and loves the creative freedom it allows her, encouraging creative thinking, inspiring confidence. Pauline Velez-Romano is just lovely: kind, gentle, friendly, patient, and seems to genuinely enjoy teaching the kids. Soon Kayla will be ending her third semester of class and looking forward to many more. Kayla loves going to Art Lab! Thank you so much Art Lab!”
