My programs are designed for all ages to focus on your artistic spirit and creativity in a relaxed and enjoyable environment. You will walk away with a sense of accomplishment, a sound understanding of the tools and techniques, and a unique piece of art to call your own.

No need to be art savvy, just be art curious! Come join one of our arts and crafts classes/workshops in NJ to relax, have a good time, and open your mind and soul to the world of art!

About Me

Loraine Lapalomento - Elegantly Loraine

Hi, I'm Loraine LaPalomento! I love art of all kinds. I'm a painter, crafter, gardener, and a DIY'er who just loves to create and explore the arts. When I go to craft fairs, I look at how things are made and say, "I can do that!"... and off I go in creating my own unique rendition of the art piece to call my own.

I've worked in many different mediums, and attend various art classes and workshops to sharpen my techniques and extend my knowledge in the arts and crafts industry. I'm often found in my art studio at home creating the next masterpiece on canvas, slate or wood, floral arranging or home decor to give to family or friends.

After 35 years of working in Corporate America, I've decided to continue my journey in the arts, establishing Elegantly Loraine. My goal is to share my experiences and knowledge, guide you to find your creative side, and learn from other artists along the way.

“Spring Wreath Workshop was a great time. The workshop was designed for beginners and easy to follow. Loraine did a great job in assisting me to create a bow for my wreath. I would definitely attend another workshop in the future. Thank you Loraine for a great class!!”
