Aspiring Artists® was first introduced at the Jersey Shore by its Founder Debra Stasiak, who is an entrepreneur, professional artist, Rutgers University graduate, certified teacher and mother of two sons. Debra began teaching masterpiece painting in 2000 while she developed her own pre-k curriculum at a school in Spring Lake Heights, NJ.
Since 2001, Aspiring Artists® classes have been offered throughout Central New Jersey. Ms. Stasiak, more commonly known as “Miss Debra” to all of her students, has taught thousands of students who have produced over 30,000 interpretive renditions of famous masterpieces from Monet, Renoir, Degas, Cassatt, Cezanne, Pissarro, and van Gogh using her unique Interpretive Impressionism® system. She has expanded the Aspiring Artists® curricula to include her original compositions in Fauvism, Modernism, and Decoupage Designs. “Miss Debra” is delighted to offer some of her lessons online. Please visit our online classes page for more details. A percentage of your online class order supports the Aspiring Artists® children helping children as they help themselves movement™. It is art with a cause.
