About – dev DO NOT EDIT

Studio in a School brings visual arts education to public schools and community-based organizations across New York City. We foster the creative and intellectual development of students from 3K to 12th grade through rich experiences with visual arts. We also provide professional development for teachers, sharing our expertise to further support educators’ work in classrooms and beyond. Since our founding in 1977, Studio has served over 1.2 million students.  

Studio in a school helps students learn to be free—they don’t need to color in the lines. It is about learning to experiment and explore


Our inquiry-based approach helps students of all ages learn to use the artistic process—focusing on exploration, discovery and skill building across a variety of art media.

Founded in 1977 to develop and nurture visual arts experiences to New York City youth, this website is a place for us to share our resources, lesson plans and learnings beyond New York.
