One River SchoolEnglewood
In 2011 Founder Matt Ross began research into art programs across the United States and a pattern emerged. In most metropolitan areas, there was an abundance of art schools in the city centers but virtually none in the nearby suburbs.
When Ross chose Englewood, NJ to open One River School, he felt convinced that the location would be the perfect one for a pilot school that would test the notion that cool art schools could thrive outside the city center. Matt says: “we believe that people in suburbs across America want access to the same amazing creative experiences that exist in our cities”.
To fulfill this mission, Matt developed a new method for teaching art that created the most compelling and fun recreational / art education experiences. Ross continues, “We created a cool, interactive experience that is focused on current concepts. It celebrates the most important artists and themes of the last 50 years and we purpose-built a proprietary curriculum that has enabled us to deliver an experience that is changing people’s lives.”
“One River” is not only the name of our school but a metaphor for the cultural gap that exists in suburbs across America and it is Matt’s ambition to address the challenge by growing One River into a national network of schools.
