New York School of the Arts is a cultural learning center committed to innovation and experimentation in art. We have a dedicated faculty of professional artists who emphasize a collaborative learning environment across a wide range of disciplines. Our goal is to guide our students to develop their artistic vision and to become enlightened citizens of our world or simply to enjoy the process of creativity. Learning, experimenting, exploring and the development of an artistic passion are at the core of our new and dynamic institution.
Our faculty leads students to understand the conceptual thinking and theoretical bases that underlie their art and view it within the framework of art history. We help them develop their critical abilities – about the work of artists past and present, and their own work as well. In this way, we encourage a larger comprehension of art while our hands-on instruction aids students to achieve their personal artistic goals.
At our school, you will feel at home, immersed in our close community of faculty artists and welcomed by a student body drawn from around the country and around the world. The variety of ideas and approaches is stimulating. But above all, you will find that our devoted faculty and staff have created a nurturing learning environment where a love for art lights the path for the artist’s creative journey.
