Frequently Asked Questions


The Art Students League educates students in the language and process of making art. It is a place where anyone who wishes to pursue an art education can realize his or her full potential. Classes are based on the atelier system, where a working artist trains students in a studio setting. You can register and start classes at any time.  Average class prices are listed here.

There Are No Entrance Requirements or Examinations to Begin Classes at the League
Students are not required to have had any previous art experience. Instructors in some advanced classes may require an interview prior to class admissions. Come to the League office at 215 West 57th Street (between Seventh Ave. and Broadway) and see what the League has to offer or call (212) 247-4510. You can start classes today.

Class schedules based on specific disciplines are listed here (Sept. 2012–May 2013).

Areas of Instruction – Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Printmaking
Students can select from varied classes and workshops in six key areas of concentration. Classes and workshops are taught by working artist–instructors who represent a wide range of artistic philosophies and techniques and are practiced in working with students of all skill levels. Students also learn from their fellow art students. The Art Students League of New York also offers art classes for children. Click on a discipline below for a schedule of League classes in that area.

  • Painting A wide array of approaches from realism to abstraction
  • Drawing Artistic anatomy, drawing from life, design
  • Sculpture Clay, carving in wood and stone, assemblage and casting
  • Printmaking Etching, lithography, wood block, silkscreen and photo-etching 
  • Mixed Media Three-dimensional composition combining various materials
  • Welding Oxy-acetylene, MIG and TIG welding, plasma cutting
  • Bronze Casting* The lost wax process, investment mold making and finishing techniques
  • Seminars Exploring classic literature about art and artists and modern art movements.
  • Children's Classes Children eight years of age and above may register in the children's classes, which are held on weekends and during the week in summer. During the week from September through May, no student under the age of 18 may be registered for morning or afternoon classes at the League unless permission is obtained from the administration.
*In addition to classes that teach bronze casting, The Art Students League of New York offers bronze casting services to currently enrolled sculpture students.
 
Tuition
Monthly registration and the League’s commitment to low tuition help students receive the best training available without accumulating debt. There are no prerequisites for enrollment. 

Refund Policy for Classes
Tuition refunds are calculated as of the date the student submits a “Request for Refund Form” (available in the office or online) by fax: (212) 541-7024, email: info@artstudentsleague.org, or in person. Only 75% of the remaining balance of monthly tuition will be refunded. Refunds are by check or ASL credit, only. Neither refunds nor credits are given for absences that occur in the course of the month.

Life-Drawing/Painting
For all classes that work from the model, a general pose schedule is followed:

Each model pose lasts 20 minutes, followed by a 5-minute break.  A longer 20-minute break is generally taken midway through class (usually after the fourth 20-minute pose).  Please note that this pose schedule may vary per class.

Some classes continue with the same pose for several weeks, while other classes may vary the pose throughout the week.  For drop-in non-instructed sketch sessions, the model may stay with one pose or vary the pose throughout the session (mixing in a variety of 1- to 20-minute poses).
