One River School of Art + Design, a year-round school offering classes for children, teens, and adults, is scheduled to open in May in part of the former Bertucci’s restaurant on Post Road East. One River, founded in 2012 by School of Rock creator Matt Ross, is on a mission to transform art education in America. The school’s focus is on contemporary art, taught by practicing artists, with classes for children and teens being largely project-based. Westport native and class of 2000 Staples High School graduate Alyson Luck has signed on as director of the Westport school, One River’s 11th location. Luck, former manager of school, youth, and family programs at the Guggenheim, says the school will include three classrooms, a digital design lab, and a gallery space to display emerging artists’ work.
