The New York Studio School’s Certificate is a unique and focused studio arts program. A rigorous alternative to degree programs, the Studio School Certificate teaches students to build a substantial practice in Painting and Sculpture, fosters a community of dedicated peers, and continues the founding principles of the Studio School: artists teaching aspiring artists through studio learning and intense dialogue. NYSS is devoted to the lifelong study and practice of art.
The Certificate is a three-year program. Each semester begins with a two-week Drawing or Sculpture Marathon to immerse participants in experimentation, perception, and productivity. Students work in a shared studio environment the first two years as they advance & evolve, working closely with Faculty members, and attend drawing, painting, and sculpture classes, visiting artists’ critiques, and weekly and final critiques. In the third year, artists move into a private studio space to develop a body of work for the Certificate Completion Exhibition.
The Certificate is an ideal fit for many types of students: midcareer artists hoping to recharge and enhance their work, recent undergraduate artists seeking to grow prior to attending graduate school, aspiring international artists, and practitioners who long to become artists after a career switch. Students are diverse in background, age, and experience and united by a deep passion for the serious study of drawing, painting, & sculpture.
