The New York Studio School is for those who are immersed in their studio practice.
For these individuals, the daily focus on art making and the diversity of courses will be incredibly rewarding.
At the Studio School, the incentive to work comes from the students themselves without the aid of diversionary projects, assignments, or experiments. The students here are grateful to remain in the studio, to concentrate on their work and to work on their own.
The measure of each student’s development is particular to that individual, and progresses without the pressure of producing accomplished works. How much learned in the process is the criterion of success. Here, the pursuit of authenticity tends to reject the distractions of style or the rush for novelty. Response to the contemporary does not lessen the excitement of discovery within the art of the past. No dichotomy between “realism” and “abstraction” is assumed at the School. On the contrary, perceptual experience is encouraged to lead the student to the discovery of abstract equivalents, to a deepening grasp of the plastic means.
Student Services provide support for Career Services, Disabled Student Services, Health Services and Orientation, and more.
