Welcome to duCret
The duCret School of Art is situated on five beautiful acres, and is located on a quiet neighborhood street in a residential area, just on the outskirts of the City of Plainfield, NJ. Directly across the street resides the Cedarbrook Elementary School. The duCret building was originally a family home in the 1900's, and was converted into a boys school in the 1930's by the Wardlaw-Hartridge School. An addition to the main house, there is an additional wing, which sports a gymnasium sized fine art floor, multiple classrooms, a photography lab, a jewelry design lab, a ceramics lab, a stained glass lab, a computer lab and an auditorium. In the late 1970's duCret came to the location and now fully occupies the property. The building is a Historic landmark.
The duCret School of Art provides those seeking to enter the creative arts field, a three (3) yr Professional Art Career Program geared to develop entrepreneurial artists for today's world. duCret also offers a class-at-a-time program for adults, active seniors and seasonal workshops for kids and teens.
