At the National Academy School, artistic ambition is celebrated and ideas are cultivated in an open, creative space where our student body of approximately 950 students learns and experiments under the mentorship of professional artists.

The Studio System.
The studio experience is at the heart of the National Academy School. Classes are taught in spacious, sky-lit studios. Because of their exceptional northern light, our studios are considered among the finest in New York City, and our proximity to Central Park allows us to offer stimulating landscape classes. Small class sizes allow for individual attention, and students of all ages and experiences are welcome.

Traditional & Experimental Approach.
Areas of study include a wide range of traditional, contemporary, and experimental approaches to drawing, painting, sculpture, and printmaking. In addition, we offer a growing slate of classes in alternative, mixed, and digital media. Our professional training courses help you establish a web presence and interact with museum and gallery leaders.

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.

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.
