More About New York Arts Practicum

The intensive eight-week program offers participants a structured environment to experience the challenges of life as an artist and demystifies the many ways one can be an artist today. Mentees work in their mentor’s studio two to three days per week, meetMonday and Tuesday evenings for a critique seminar, and convene Fridays for site visits in artist studios, galleries, and museums. Past participants called the experience: demystifying, life changing, and an inspirational reality check.

By working with an artist on a day-to-day basis, participants gain a view of their near futures as artists, learning models for negotiating a creative life outside of school. Regular Mentors include: Brendan FernandesPablo HelgueraDavid HorvitzMarisa JahnSteve LambertSimone LeighJen LiuEva and Franco MattesMary MattinglyJennifer and Kevin McCoySara Greenberger RaffertyBrad Troemel, Penelope UmbricoAndrew Norman WilsonLetha Wilson.

Mentors lead critiques structured around developing strategies for creating work without institutional studio facilities. Practicum mentors lead seminars on their work, or a related topic; these sessions are intimate views into their in-progress work, with a focus on process.
