Visionary Studio - Art Education

Visionary Studio Overview

Visionary Studio provides New York City high school students with free, intensive access to contemporary art and art-making!

VISIONARY STUDIO: SATURDAY ART WORKSHOP

Nine-weeks of theme-based studio classes address significant social issues and the ways in which art and artists influence society. Students can choose from different themes such as war, propaganda, environment, and re-visioning history and through a series of class discussions, field trips, and exercises, develop an idea for a more complex final project. Courses are taught by Steinhardt Art Education MA students and conclude with an exhibit of final works in NYU's Commons for a wide audience of parents, friends, teachers, and NYU faculty. No portfolio is needed to apply-this program is open to young artists of all experience levels.

VISIONARY STUDIO: ADVANCED WORKSHOP

Three intense studio art classes offered on 10 Saturdays from 9:30am-12:30pm. High school students must apply with a portfolio of work to be admitted to the Advanced Workshop.
