About Maria Milazzo

Maria Milazzo has been sharing her love and passion for art in the Matawan area for over 25 years. Her quintessential art studio, known as Young at Art, is nestled in the center of town. Maria started her business on the front lawn of her new home in the summer of 1990. What started out as neighborhood children gathering around her as she painted in the open air turned into a journey that would define her. Daily children began to flock to her inquiring how they could learn to do the same. Shortly thereafter, Young at Art was born and in a few short years, the high demand for her art classes outgrew the her home and she located her business in downtown Matawan.

With her business blooming, Maria pursued her degree in Art and Education at Kean University while continuing to teach at Young at Art. In 2007 she graduated from Kean and became an Elementary School Art Teacher at Marlboro Elementary School in Marlboro, NJ where she continues to work today. With an official career as an art teacher, Maria still could not give up her neighborhood studio. Her next step was renovating a century year old Victorian which had the option of serving both as a residential and a professional space. Today, Maria instructs the school District created curriculum of art to students in first through fifth grades throughout the school year and continues to run Young at Art year-round. Teaching several classes throughout the week broken up by age, at Young at Art students work with everything including collage, pastels, water colors, acrylics, and oils. Twentyfive years after she started coloring on her front lawn, Young at Art continues to teach artists of all ages the techniques of art and the passion that fuels the creativity behind it.
As a life-long learner, Maria is always restless for new projects. Recently, Maria started her own Paint it Forward :Interactive Artist Adventure Project in which she collects random land and cityscapes from around the world using GoogleMaps Street View and paints them. She selects her subjects alphabetically and mails the final masterpiece off to the address that she painted. In turn, the recipients are asked to post a picture of themselves on her Facebook with her painting in front of the scene depicted page in gratitude. In doing so, Maria is promoting global unity through art and technology.
