The National Academy School offers an intensive course of study designed to cultivate the creativity and artistic achievement of each artist. Students choose either a two- or three-year program. The Studio Art Intensive is ideal for artists who are continuing to develop their techniques, students considering an MFA or having just completed one, as well as educators or anyone looking to explore a long-held artistic passion.
Each artist has a designated space in a communal studio, which is accessible seven days a week.
The Studio Art Intensive program culminates in a group show, which includes an opening reception, promoted throughout the New York arts community. In addition, there are opportunities to exhibit in the National Academy Museum.
The National Academy’s faculty provides ongoing mentoring and critique. Guided by faculty advisors, students select from course offerings that include painting, printmaking, sculpture, drawing, and digital media. Using their strong ties to the New York museum and gallery scene, faculty provide opportunities outside the classroom including visits with artists, gallery owners, curators, and other influential figures in the art world.
Special attention is given to portfolio development, critical thinking and marketing, including website development. Students hone their work through a series of formal critiques and individual reviews with faculty.
Applications are available on the National Academy website and accepted on a rolling basis, with two start dates per year. To learn more about the Studio Art Intensive visit nationalacademy.org.
