ABOUT NEW YORK STUDIO SCHOOL:
New York Studio School was founded in 1964 as a rigorous studio arts program with an emphasis on perception; artists learning from artists; and drawing as the most direct means of describing one’s ideas or experiences.
“The School is not for the faint-hearted. It is for the student with a deep involvement in the desire to be an artist, an intensity of temperament and vision, and an integrity of purpose. It is for those who like to work rigorously, think smart and keenly, and those who are prepared to look hard and long in order to see. A true student is always ‘looking’; a real artist begins to see.” - Graham Nickson, Dean
