Studio Institute’s Studio Intensives series—now in its fifth year— offers after-school and Saturday classes for aspiring art students attending New York City public high schools. In the recently completed Winter Multi-Media Intensive: The Figure in Motion, students attended weekly representational drawing sessions with live models and created artwork, including digital animations.
In conjunction with the New York City Ballet’s annual Art Series program, which features renowned artists who collaborate with the Ballet, students enrolled in this year’s Multi-Media Intensive class took part in several activities at the New York City Ballet at Lincoln Center.
Students were given a behind-the-scenes tour, participated in a movement workshop, attended a rehearsal and a ballet performance, and met with this year’s artist, MacArthur Genius award-winner Lauren Redniss, all of which served to inspire their own multi-media artwork.
The culmination of the seven-week Intensives program was with a reception and exhibition of student work at Lincoln Center on March 5th, attended by the young artists, their families, friends, and teachers, as well as instructors and staff from Studio Institute, New York City Ballet, and Lincoln Center. Students greeted visitors and answered questions about their work.
Studio Institute’s Figure in Motion intensive class, enhanced through our valued collaboration with the New York City Ballet, is a meaningful part of our repertoire of art instruction offerings for young artists. We stand with our cultural partners and thank them for providing students with opportunities to experience the arts at some of the nation’s most respected institutions.
Applications for the Fall 2020 Studio Intensives in painting and portfolio development will be posted on our website in September. We hope to engage with our student audiences and cultural partners in person soon, but in the meantime, take a virtual look at the recent Lincoln Center reception and exhibition of student artwork.
