Ariel Kleinberg and Fukuko Harris

Ariel Kleinberg and Fukuko Harris- November 15-21

The Student Gallery is organized and run by students, and gives them the opportunity to see their work outside the studio in a different, independent context while presenting it to their peers and the public. Shows can feature finished works or works-in-progress, and are framed, curated and hung by the students themselves.

Students are also responsible for publicizing the show, mailing invitations and hosting an opening reception. The work is discussed in a seminar held in the gallery, conducted by the exhibiting students.

Exhibitions are usually two-person shows, although group exhibitions from painting and sculpture ateliers may also be featured as part of the program.

Pre-College Life Drawing Session

On Sunday, October 20th, young artists from High Schools across New York City traveled to 8th street to draw from the model.  Artists Jill Nathanson and Josef Zutelgte led students in an exploration of form, contours, and composition.  Students worked with ink, charcoal and graphite in the historic sky lit drawing room at The New York Studio School, and the improvements from drawing to drawing were exciting.

We will be starting a weekly course for teens this winter 2014 on Sundays.  For more information, get in touch at

Marathon Students on the High Line

The September High Line Marathon has quickly become a favorite session at the school.  The Park affords striking views of the Hudson River, Chelsea architecture, and the streets below.  Students work in various media, graphite, charcoal, and watercolor, directly from their experiences in the park.  Then, in the ateliers on 8th Street, students explore spatial and conceptual ideas from their experiences in the park.  Jim Plunkett and Joe Santore are the instructors.  To find out more about the course, click the link HERE.

Community Drawing Session (Positively 8th Street)

This past Saturday, experienced artists and those new to artmaking came together to draw from the model during the Positively 8th Street Festival.  The Festival, put on by the Village Alliance, closed off traffic to allow pedestrians, musicians, poets, and artists to celebrate the beautiful day on our historic strip of 8th street.

Part II of the festival will be this coming Saturday, June 22, from 12-5 PM.  We will have charcoal, paper, and easels- but feel free to bring your own supplies and stay as long as you like.  More information about the Festival can be found HERE.
