Studio in a School works exclusively with the visual arts: drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, sculpting, and photography. This commitment to programs solely in the visual arts has enabled the organization to develop a unique expertise in the field of arts education. STUDIO hires only professional artists to teach in its programs - programs which are based on partnerships - with teachers, students, administrators, and caregivers. STUDIO believes that training, supporting, and collaborating with those who help shape young people's lives is a key component of making art an indispensable part of education. Both STUDIO and its partnering sites make a commitment to provide the funds, facilities, materials, schedules, and training that enable art-making to become a regular part of the day and an ongoing part of the curriculum. Each year, STUDIO provides services to more than 30,000 children in public schools and a wide range of community settings. Its individually designed art programs fulfill the needs of these communities, whether they be youth-development or early-childhood goals.
Mission: To foster the creative and intellectual development of New York City youth through quality visual arts programs, directed by arts professionals.
