Emily Nam (MFA 2018)
“The New York Studio School has assisted me in seeing the world and to think about the world in a way that is accessible to my process of thinking and my desire to express. Without imposing one way of viewing, a great attribute of the School has been the array of classes and diverse teachers – each lending their own individual lessons by which to embrace and reject in the search for my own voice as a practitioner.”
Marco Palli (MFA 2018)
“I began taking Evening & Saturday Classes at NYSS focused on drawing and sculpture. One day, a student came in the classroom about 11:30 pm, singing “someone is a sculptor!” She suggested that I participate in the Marathon Program. I did and I felt like I was training in a boot camp. I was confused and exhausted, but as soon as I recovered from the physical exhaustion, I realized that I wanted more!”
Sophy Lee (MFA 2016)
“The Studio School is multi-cultural, and encourages and welcomes international students to join and participate in their programs. The School also understands the financial difficulty of international students, and provides them with financial support.”
Now accepting applications for Fall 2019. Apply by February 15, 2019.
