Student Perspective – Marathon: Paula Wachsstock, Virtual Certificate Student

Taking a marathon with Clintel Steed is what I would liken to taking a ride into a world of energized passion and discovery. Recently I completed Hudson River In-Person Painting Marathon with Clintel Steed and I feel as though I had a break through in who I am as a painter, and how I want to […]

Marathon Perspective: Katherine Earle, Teaching Assistant

When I first found my way to a New York Studio School course with Jilaine Jones a few years back, I did not have much experience working in three dimensions.  Beyond a rather spectacular failure to achieve my artistic vision in a block of rosewood in high school, I had mostly shied away from creating […]

Student Perspective: Naomi Nemtzow on the NYSS Sculpture Program

Artist Naomi Nemtzow discusses her experience in Lee Tribe’s Virtual Evening Sculpture Class.  After years of making paintings and collages in two dimensions, my work started telling me it wanted a third dimension. Lee Tribe’s Thursday night class has been a terrific place to explore the challenge of building 3D wall pieces, adding physical substance […]

Alumni Perspective: Mark Milroy (MFA 2018) Discusses his Exhibition at Nancy Margolis Gallery

What a great surprise it was the day I received a letter from Lilian the Associate Director of Nancy Margolis Gallery. At first, I thought how do they know me? Is this real? I knew the gallery and several of the artists that they have shown and more than that the significance of the gallery. Nancy […]

This past November was spent wandering, seeing and drawing. Weeklong returns to the same museum were punctuated by treasure hunt […]

NYSS: Describe a typical day in your studio. Rosie Lopeman: What feels meaningful keeps changing, so I’m finding ways to follow it. To begin, I have to let all this content arise:— anxiety, restlessness, inspiration, doubt, ambitions — all this stuff has to be allowed to wash over me for a while. I just need […]
