Founded in 1926, the duCret School of Art is the oldest arts school in New Jersey. For 92 years duCret has nurtured many local artists as well as art collectors. The studio-based classroom experience enables students to study basics in composition, design and color theory and to prepare their own professional portfolio.

The duCret building in Plainfield, NJ was originally built in 1896 by the George Strong family and was later converted into a school in the 1930's by the Wardlaw-Hartridge School. Since duCret’s purchase of the building in 1970 the house has been a site for the preservation and promotion of fine art.

“The Watchung Arts Center is excited and proud to be offering our viewing audience a chance to see and purchase works of such talent at excellent prices,” states Mr. Pinkman, the VP of Visual Arts Programming. “It isn’t often we get to exhibit an exceptional collection of paintings and drawings like this and in support of such a great art institution.”
