The New York Studio School specializes in a two-year MFA program focusing on Painting or Sculpture, with Drawing as an integral practice for both majors. The program combines group and individual critiques, faculty-led painting and sculpture sessions, critical studies, and art history, with independent studio time. Members of our dedicated student body are fiercely engaged with their work, trusting that the process of creating is a journey.
The New York Studio School promotes learning through making — seeing over measuring, building over copying, re-creating over rendering, expression over correctness, truth over style, process over product. We believe that drawing from perception is essential to the understanding of formal elements of art making and to the development of individual voices.
The Studio School provides the space and time to discover one’s artistic identity within an intimate community of professors and students. We celebrate artists teaching artists and celebrate that there are no shortcuts to becoming an artist. Graduates gain the passion and discipline to sustain a studio practice for the rest of their lives.
Studio and class time is enhanced by our Evening Lecture Series, Gallery Exhibitions, Lunchtime Lectures, and visiting artist critiques. Our unique Marathons, which kickstart the first two weeks of each semester, challenge students with intense, full-day, faculty-led sessions in drawing, painting, and sculpture.
Applications are due February 15th, 2017, for our MFA 2019 class. Apply now and join an exciting community of true painters and sculptors.
