With arts immersion at the core of our program, we are deeply committed to exposing and nurturing multidisciplinary arts skills within our students. Every child is an artist. We also connect our families with local artists to further enrich our shared capacity to see the world through an artistic lens.
We feature the work of professional artists within the school – both as pieces of art to be appreciated, but also as curriculum items that the children use during class.
Immersed in the beauty and creativity of art, we want our students to recognize that their surroundings and learning materials are made with care and beauty.
We also seek to honor artists who are committed to bring their work to children. A select group of art school students from leading NYC programs are given the opportunity to participate in The Studio Garden’s Artists in Residency Program. Student artists from a variety of disciplines are included. Each residency is a semester long and the artist has the opportunity to collaborate on special curriculum projects and assist in implementing them in the classroom.
Artists in Residence will also be invited to lead a children’s art workshop for current Studio Garden families and alumni who would like an opportunity for greater exposure to the artists’ medium of work. At the conclusion of the semester the resident will be invited to showcase the work they created with the students in The Studio Garden in a public viewing.
