What we're about

Shakespeare eloquently wrote in Twelfth Night: "if music be the food of love, play on." And what loving sensations, music delivers to the ears; so the exquisite forms of acting and modeling can be equally stimulating to the eyes.

Art Oasis is a serene private sanctuary located in the heart of Manhattan Chinatown, conveniently accessible by public transportation from New York and New Jersey. Owner is a local award-winning entrepreneur Maggie Law, with her team of professional instructors and trainers. Study classes include learning the crafts of the acting and modeling industry; suitable for all ages and experiences.
