New York City Schools Program

The New York City Schools Program delivers in-class instruction with standards-based curricula across multiple grades and in varied media, primarily for students who otherwise would not have access to quality visual arts instruction. In addition, the program provides in-school professional development for educators, arts engagement for families, and exhibitions of student artwork in schools and other sites citywide. Through three programs - Long Term, Early Childhood and Residency - NYC Schools provides weekly instruction to over 30,000 students each year through partnerships with nearly 200 schools in all five boroughs, approximately 90% of which have federal Title I status. Curricula at every grade level are developed in collaboration with school staff, and rigorous assessment of student outcomes supports ongoing evaluation of our programming.

The Studio Institute was created by the Studio Board of Directors in 2016 to strengthen the organization's ability make the case for high quality arts education through in-depth research, documentation of impact, new product development, and dissemination of these efforts in New York City and nationally. The Institute's inaugural projects have included federally-funded research and development of curriculum integrating visual arts with Math, English Language Arts, and Technology; a partnership with the NYC Department of Education to raise the quality of teacher training for the city’s Pre-K for All initiative; and ongoing apprenticeship and internship programs that prepare young people from economically disadvantaged backgrounds for college and the workplace. In addition, a key goal for the Institute is the expansion of Studio’s programs. This effort began in 2016 with expanded out-of-school teen programs within New York City, the national replication of the college Arts Intern program, and initial outreach for national replication of Studio’s in-school and teacher training programs.
