NYU Virtual Art Program
July 5 - July 31, 2021
Developed by NYU’s internationally recognized Art and Art Professions Department, this 4-week online program is designed to provide students interested in the broad scope of art with an introduction to the experience of being an art student at a prestigious New York City institution.
The NYU Virtual Summer Art Program is an online program for High School Students who are interested in exploring the variety and depth that the field of fine arts has to offer. This program is designed to enhance your technical and creative skills and to expand your knowledge of visual art, history and culture.
We offer Studio Art Courses which are designed to accelerate your capacities of creating art in both traditional (drawing, painting and sculpture) and digital (video editing, and digital photography) methods. Each course is designed to be immersive with cumulative skills, building techniques that will result in a final project that will be displayed in an online exhibition or publication.
Our Non-Studio Art Courses are for those interested in Art History, Museums, Galleries and Developing your Portfolio. These courses are designed to give students unparalleled access to leading institutions, artists, curators and researchers who will share their knowledge and expertise of these fields. There will be lively discussions, salon style critiques and a final presentation of work in the form of an edited publication and online exhibition.

High School students going into their Sophomore (10th), Junior (11th), or Senior (12th) year.

Designed to provide close attention to a select number of young creatives, through rigorous and unique studio projects, and esteemed instructors and guest lecturers. NYU’s High School Summer Art Intensive builds a community that extends beyond summer.
