The New York Studio School (NYSS) is committed to giving a significant education to aspiring artists that will last a lifetime. They are encouraged to question and think about the practices of drawing, painting, and sculpture at all times. NYSS MFA students graduate from the program with an ambitious studio practice, enabling them to construct a framework for the rest of their life’s work.
NYSS’s financial aid package helps support highly gifted students who are looking to experience a demanding education in the visual arts. Most New York Studio School financial assistance is awarded on the basis of the student’s documented financial need. All students must complete the financial aid application and must establish and sustain a good academic record to be considered for financial assistance on an annual basis. If you have already applied to the program, you will automatically be considered for the scholarship.
The School’s internationally recognized Marathon Programs were developed in 1988 by Dean Graham Nickson, initially as a measure for the rest of the semester at the start of the year. The program has since expanded to become a core component of the School’s curriculum. Interest in the Marathons has led to a wider audience of participants outside the full-time student body. Renowned artists, art historians, dealers, collectors, art educators, writers, journalists, and students of all levels and affiliations have since experienced the intensity of the program.
In addition to a rigorous studio practice, students are encouraged to listen and engage with art world leaders in the Evening Lecture Series. The lectures are always free and open to the public.
