Art Student League

Artists who have studied and taught at the Art Students League have set the course of American art for 140 years. Our prominent artist-instructors’ studio art classes provide a hands-on education accessible to anyone who truly aspires to develop as an artist — whether you are seeking to pursue a profession in the fine arts or just beginning your artistic journey.


We offer 100 atelier studio-based art classes taught by professional artists in drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, welding and assemblage. Most classes work from the live model.

Most classes range in price from $105/month to $265/month.

Registration is by the month, though you can start at any time. There are no prerequisites.

Choose morning, afternoon, late afternoon, or evening classes; or attend on the weekend—whatever fits your schedule. Our supportive community is diverse in age, background and experience: students strive together to learn.

For “full-time” classes that meet five days or evenings a week, the instructor is present two of those days. Those classes also offer a “part-time” option. Students can attend Monday and Tuesday OR Wednesday and Thursday. The instructor is present one of those days. 


We host several hundred weekend and week-long workshops each year. League instructors and prominent visiting artists work with intimate groups of about a dozen students on a particular aspect of art-making (such as plein air painting) or a specific medium or technique (such as egg tempera or color spot painting). Try a workshop to take your work to a new level.

Entrance Requirements
There are no entrance requirements or examinations. Students are not required to have had any previous art experience. Instructors in some advanced classes may require an interview prior to class admission.

General Registration Information
Registration is by the calendar month throughout the year. Students may start class anytime based on availability. Waitlists are maintained for filled classes.

Science Research Mentoring Program

Science at The Museum of Natural History:

The Science Research Mentoring Program is a free two-year program open to any New York City high school student, entering the tenth or eleventh grade. Students are linked to research mentors who are museum scientists and educators working in the fields of anthropology, evolution, biodiversity, genetics and conversation biology. Students receive in-depth training and support that enables them to take part in scientific research conducted at the Museum. The focus is on students from groups traditionally underrepresented in science- women, minorities, and person with disabilities, or who have lacked opportunities to pursue their scientific interests because of limited access to the mentors and facilities. This program is designed to expose high school students to different careers in the biological sciences and anthropology, with an emphasis on scientific research, in order to prepare them and make them stronger candidates for college science programs.
