Art education company continues growth

Englewood-based art education company One River School announced it has signed a franchise partnership that will see multiple schools come to Long Island.

The first of franchisee Matt Boskin’s new One River schools will debut in Port Jefferson, New York, in January 2020, representing the second location in the region. Boskin’s second location should follow in March, One River said.

“I am excited to bring this unique, fun and educational experience to the Port Jefferson area,” Boskin said in a prepared statement. “One River teaches art in such an innovative way that students of all ages get to express their creativity. (Founder and CEO) Matt Ross has built a great platform that has proven to be successful for the community and franchisees.”

One River now has 12 locations in six states, and has further expansion plans, it said.

“I am thrilled to be opening more locations on Long Island,” Ross said in a statement. “Our first school in Woodbury was an instant success, and we continue to see tremendous interest there, which tells me that adults and kids throughout Long Island will respond to our differentiated approach to art education.”
