Upper East Side, New York, New York

New York School of the Arts is a school that has been created to fulfill the expectation of the transformed contemporary art world. It is based on the heritage of the traditional discipline and at the same time an exploration of the new media. In the modern context of New York City, we use a strong atelier methodology along with critical and conceptual practices.

Conceived as a multidisciplinary hub, our school explores the studies of fine arts, design, architecture and music and, with our future Center of the Arts, will host an international gallery, artist’s studio and our Arts Intensive Program. Counting on the support and the expertise of important living and visiting artists, our students have access to a range of cutting-edge workshops, lectures, panel discussions, critiques, and school events.

We offer a broad spectrum of arts educational programs, programs in general art study, studio practices, instruction on the business of art and later a study abroad program with an intention to broaden our international dimension. Students also find enrichment in museum and gallery visits as well as opportunities to participate in areas of specialized study with other partnering New York City art organizations. Students have many opportunities to exhibit their work in the School galleries, including in our prestigious year end Annual Show.

Our dynamic and flexible program structure provides students with a solid foundation in arts education. Also, students have opportunities to experience and collaborate with visiting art professionals such as art dealers, curators, and members of other prestigious art institutions. This will facilitate connections with New York City galleries and an immersion into the New York City art scene. This multi-faceted experience provides our students with the comprehensive knowledge and support they need for a professional career in the arts.

Notes:

Please note, New York School of the Arts charges a $50 one-time registration fee for students who are new to their school. This is automatically added to the cost of your enrollment (and already included in the price listed on this course). If you are a returning student to NYSA, please let us know and we will refund you $50.

This class was FANTASTIC. Carlos is an incredible teacher. He is always encouraging, knowledgeable, and interesting. He allows you the freedom to pursue what you are interested in and helps steer you along the way to complete your project. I also love how he introduces art/artists into class in ways that make you think about art differently. I will definitely be taking more classes with him.

The class was very professionally run and no class time was wasted. As a beginner, the class was a little challenging due to less familiarity with techniques, materials, etc.

I greatly enjoyed the woodworking class with Carlos. I hadn’t worked with wood in decades and was pleased with what I created with Carlos’ help. On the very first day, he led us through an activity to use our imagination to come up with what we wanted to design. From there, it was a matter of refining ideas under Carlos’ great care and support. Carlos is kind and helpful and able to resourcefully solve problems with you.

I enjoyed this figure drawing class at the NY School of the Arts. The school is well organized and offers a variety of art making classes. The instructor was very knowledgeable and engaging. We worked from live models (always a good thing) and with a variety of media. Our instructor provided us with guidance on portraiture and other aspects of figure drawing. I learned a lot in this class.
