Student Perspective: Alison Causer, MFA 2021

I believe it was 2017 when NYSS Alum Case Jernigan wandered into my then studio/living room in Bushwick, Brooklyn. He was visiting his friend who happened to be subletting with us at the time. Case looked at my work and quickly suggested I check out a Marathon at the New York Studio School. I did […]

Student Perspective: Irene Cole, Virtual Certificate

My painting practice for years has been to paint when I had spare time, fitting it in around family and work schedules all the while dreaming about going to art school to dive deeper into the process. The need to spend so much time away from home to accomplish my goal has held me back […]

Student Perspective – Virtual Marathons: Ariane Guelich

The Virtual Sculpture Marathon with Bruce Gagnier, at first a compromise solution, has been in many ways a discovery for me. My initial disappointment of not being able to come to New York because of its exceptional current situation was soon outshone by new connections with peers each committed to their own concentrated practice in […]

I learned about perceptual drawing, space in a drawing, positive and negative space, the picture plane, warm and cool colors, and plasticity. I was hooked. I took […]
