At the National Academy School, creative efforts are celebrated, ideas are exchanged, and individuals enjoy access to the unique resource of the Museum’s collection and archives. The School is an open, creative space where our student body of approximately 950 students learns and experiments under the mentorship of professional artists.

Expansive Scope.
The breadth and depth of our faculty’s expertise allows us to offer a truly diverse range of classes in every artistic discipline: painting, drawing, sculpture, new media, printmaking, mixed media, and interdisciplinary projects.

Individual Attention.
Small class sizes offer students focused, individual attention, giving them the guidance to develop their technical and creative abilities. As experienced teachers and professional artists, our faculty offer a range of demonstrations, lectures, and specialized workshops that supplement and enhance the class experience.

Special Access.
The collection of the Academy Museum is a unique resource for students, one that serves as a technical guide and touchstone for inspiration. In addition to the exhibitions offered, students have access to behind-the-scenes tours, ARTalks, lectures, and panel discussions by prominent artists and architects.

Space to Create.
Classes are taught in six sprawling, sky-lit studios, and dedicated studio space is available for those studying in the Studio Art Intensive. Faculty members provide students with close, expert mentoring on the preparation of portfolios for either professional or educational review.

Student Exhibition Experience.
The National Academy School highly values student exhibition as a celebration of the creative process. A series of school exhibitions includes works by faculty, international artists, National Academicians, and students.
