New York Studio School Marathons explore drawing, painting, and sculpture as direct methodologies for understanding one’s experience in the world. Participants experience a wide range of activating, first-hand strategies for making art, in tandem with the intellectual rigor of extensive group and individual critiques. The innovation and depth inherent in these 10-day programs expand participants’ engagement with their materials of choice, leading to ways of creating that continue far beyond each program’s conclusion. Open to artists of all levels, courses are taught daily in-person or online from 9am–6pm (ET).
Virtual Marathons are an incredible opportunity for artists from around the world to experience the high caliber NYSS Marathons from their respective homes and studios. Offered in real-time through Zoom and Padlet, these courses bring the rigorous exercises, profound insights, and deep connections of in-person Marathons to participants via virtual means.
