Best Courses in Fine Arts in USA 2017. New York Studio School offers students an opportunity to study in a three year intensive studio Certificate Program. The focus and concentration of the Certificate Program allows individuals to hone in on their chosen areas of study: Painting or Sculpture, with Drawing as an integral component of each discipline. Students begin each semester with either a Drawing or a Sculpture Marathon. NYSS's faculty and guest artists are on site each day teaching during the two week Marathons. For the remaining 13 weeks of the academic semester, students work in their studios focusing on their area of choice: Painting or Sculpture. For the first two years Students are placed in an Atelier setting, where they are given a space which allows them to explore and immerse themselves in their main area of study. Each Atelier has a slightly different philosophy and is outlined by the selected faculty member. Students are encouraged to choose an Atelier that best fit for their goals. The motifs for each Atelier may include or lean towards: working from the perception; direct or indirect observation, abstraction or imagination. The faculty members at the Studio School are professional working artists who work with students based on a curriculum designed by the philosophy and practice of the School. During the third year of the program, students are encouraged to work independently and are allocated to a private/semi private studio. The Certificate Program culminates in a Completion Exhibition - with their fellow graduates. Throughout the duration of the three years, students are encouraged to participate in other course offerings including the lunch time lectures, Professional Development Seminars, Peer Seminar Group: Exhibitions of Contemporary Art and the esteemed Evening Lecture Series that hosts some of New York City's most influential artists, writers, critics, and historians. Students will often register and join the Evening and Saturday classes including Sculpture, Painting, Drawing and Watercolor classes for exposure to other faculty members' working methodologies. This course is ideal for a student who is interested in gaining/furthering their plastic experience in either Painting or Sculpture. Ideally, enrollment is for the full three years, though accommodations can be made for the right applicant to attend one or more semesters, depending upon their availability. This program, has allowed students to build their portfolio, in order to apply to other programs. There is no automatic transfer between the Certificate and MFA programs: students who wish to apply for an MFA while enrolled in the Certificate program must apply directly to the program and will be considered as new applicants.
