Arts Summer Intensive Program

 
New York School of the Arts
 

The New York School of the Arts is pleased to announce the opening of enrollment for a new Summer Arts Intensive Program. Led by Executive Director Maurizio Pellegrin, participants will be part of a dynamic, one or two months exploration of their art practice in our creative and supportive educational environment.   

Designed for artists and educators, including both a national and international community, the program includes one-on-one mentoring, critical thinking and practical studio course study across a range of fine arts disciplines. In addition, participants will learn about portfolio development, marketing, and website development as well as will have access to the New York art scene. In order to facilitate this journey, each participant is provided with his or her own studio space for the duration of the program.

Dynamic and flexible, the program is ideal for candidates who are interested in a deep and focused intensive investigation and who are looking to accomplish specific results with their own art practice. All of this, while working in our centrally-located industrial Manhattan loft building and the chance to discover and enjoy a New York City summer.

  • Studio space in a communal environment in our cultural center on the top floor above the school.  

  • Opportunity to explore each of the following fine art disciplines: Painting, Sculpture, Printmaking, Professional Practice.  

  • Course Instruction with 4 different faculty members (one for each discipline) for a total of 8 appointments.
