Seeds of the League

Seeds of The League is The Art Students League of New York’s community youth program. Seeds partners with public schools and social service organizations across New York City to provide arts programming where it would otherwise not be accessible.


Seeds also provides full scholarships to artists ages 8 and up from underserved backgrounds to take classes at The Art Students League with our renowned instructors. In the ten years since its founding, Seeds of The League has given out more than 650 scholarships for study at The League. Seeds students have gone on to earn over $1,000,000 to support the cost of college tuition, and many have built careers they might not have had access to otherwise: they are now architects, teachers, illustrators, animators and more.
