Visionary Studios Saturday Workshop

As part of the program’s emphasis on praxis, our graduate students enrolled in School Arts II: Issues in Pedagogy and Curriculum teach a 9-week Saturday Art Workshop for high school students from across New York City. As an opportunity to design and implement a thematic unit plan based on social issues, this field experience allows students to establish a dialogue between theory introduced in the seminar and practice in the classroom, as well as develop their teaching style. Thematic classes are designed to help high school students explore ideas using a range of visual media and through multi-disciplinary projects that may include drawing, painting, printmaking, video, installation, and photography. An exhibition at the end of the session allows students to share their work with a wide audience of parents, friends, teachers, and NYU faculty. 

 See examples of Visionary Studio class themes and curricula here.

Studio Art in New York

Students complete 6 credits of graduate studio art during the summer (July-August) in the department.

Note: Students admitted with an MA or MFA in Studio Art do not have to take studio credits. All other students will be required to take 6 credits in studio art.
