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.
The graduating Certificate or MFA student leaves the School with a developed understanding of the language of art; an enlarged imagination stirred by an established work ethic, with the passion and ambition to be an artist for years to come.
The New York Studio School is a W.A.G.E. (Working Artists and the Greater Economy) certified organization.
