New York Studio School, Lower Manhattan:
The New York Studio School on West 8th Street in Lower Manhattan is where drawing, painting and sculpture are studied in depth, debated energetically and created with passion. We provide a range of art programs to adults and students, including a Master of Fine Art (MFA) and Certificate Program in Fine Art which mirrors the Masters Degree. From our historic campus in New York City, students can enroll in full and part-time programs as well as evening and weekend courses designed to suit their needs.
- Historic Campus in the heart of New York City
The School occupies eight historic buildings with an extraordinary cultural and artistic history. Occupied by various artists, and the original home of the Whitney Museum of American Art from 1931 to 1954, the School's physical home has been a place where art has been created, discussed and displayed for over a century.In the forty five years that the School has been on West 8th Street, artists and students alike have found both inspiration and comfort in continuing the tradition of drawing, painting and sculpting in the historic spaces that have played such an important role in the history of art in America.
- Commited to Quality Art Education
The New York Studio School is committed to giving a significant education to the aspiring artist that can last a lifetime. Our aim is to reveal to the entering student appropriate questions about drawing, painting and sculpture and to encourage them to work hard and think rigorously at all times, enabling them to construct an ethical and philosophical framework for their life's work.
- Creativity and Passion
We urge those students to apply who genuinely wish to learn and who are bold enough to take on the challenge of painting and sculpture in the twenty-first century. We offer the chance to translate the metamorphosis of life into art's metaphor. The New York Studio School is a place where the power of images is still searched for, the philosophy of drawing still present, and the quest for tangible form still engaged.
