As part of the School’s structure, students work from life, from compositional drawings and from their imaginations.
The New York Studio School’s curriculum is based on the atelier-system and a group teaching model for both the full-time and part-time programs. For students enrolled in the full-time programs, the School offers the opportunity to combine historical practice with independent, creative thought, and benefit from the studio-based method while having the time and space to explore their own individual creative efforts.
Part-time students, who can enroll in the Drawing Marathons (offered three times a year – in the Summer Session or in the fall and spring) or Evening & Weekend Classes, get to experience the intensity and rigor offered by the School in a more condensed manner. These courses are open to beginning and advanced artists regardless of their affiliation.

Summer Session is held each year during the months of June and July in three intensive two-week long sessions. The innovation and depth inherent in these 10-day programs expand participants’ engagement with their materials of choice and lead to ways of creating which continue far beyond each program’s conclusion.
