The New York Studio School is an art school, historical landmark, and Greenwich Village mainstay. In its early history as the Whitney Studio Club (and Whitney Museum), the Studio School attracted preeminent artists and creative minds to its sky-lit studios for artistic dialogue and serious investigation of drawing, painting and sculpture.
That spirit remains today, as 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.
