Student Testimonials:

Photo of Portfolio Preparation & Art Classes in Bergen County NJ"I've been coming to Oogie Art for only half a year. I live in Princeton, NJ, and it takes me 1.5-2 hours each way to go to Oogie Art.

I like Ms. Choi because she really cares for you, unlike instructors at many other schools. I was afraid to use color, and Ms. Choi knew that - she gave me homework to study color theory and made me practice using colors.

She made me go to Home Depot, which I thought was random, and told me to get lots of wall paint sample cards so I always had a visual reference whenever I was working with color. Thanks to her, I got accepted into my top choice college!"

- Hiann Lee, admitted into SVA with a $62,000 scholarship

"I came here because I wanted to attend the High School of Art & Design. In school, I took art classes, but it wasn't challenging enough - you weren't really learning anything.

There was one teacher for 20+ students, but at Oogie Art I get the individual attention I need. Self-portraits used to be really hard, but after Oogie, I have become more confident in my drawing skills."

- Alonzo Reyes, admitted to Art & Design High School

Quality Tuition Designed For You:

Image of Portfolio Preparation & Art Classes in Bergen County NJ- Students at Oogie Art follow a curriculum that is specifically based on their level of ability, intended colleges, time horizons, and intended major. You will always be allowed to work through your curriculum at your own pace.

- We hold in-class critiques, international museum workshops, and targeted seminars every year to help you talk and write about your work more effectively. 

- We keep our class sizes small to ensure that you receive the individualized attention that you need. The average student-teacher ratio per class is 9:1. An instructor will always be close by to answer any questions you may have, providing guidance and demonstrating techniques.

- In our studios, we encourage research, exploration and experimentation. We’ll also encourage you to venture out of your comfort zones and develop a flexibility of mind. Expand your vocabulary of techniques by working with unconventional materials and media.

Oogie Art can help you to:

- Submit Your Portfolio Correctly: We professionally photograph your final pieces, help you write informed descriptions about each, then walk you through the process of submitting them to your intended colleges via Slideroom.

- Ace Your Home Tests and Auditions: In addition to helping you prepare your art portfolio, we offer one-to-one guidance with home tests for Parsons, RISD, FIT, and Cooper Union; and in-class drawing exams for entrance to LaGuardia Arts High School.

- Win Prestigious Art Awards: We submit the best pieces you make each year to help you win as many regional and national as possible before your college deadlines. Winning awards helps to round out your college applications, even if your intended major isn’t art. Our approach makes it possible to win multiple awards per year.
