Through the creativity and imagination of the visual arts, Studio in a School (Studio) has enriched the lives of more than 750,000 children residing in the five boroughs of New York City since 1977.

Partnering with administrators, artists, supporters, and members of the New York City Board of Education, Studio dedicates itself to providing students with a full and meaningful visual arts experience. Each year, Studio offers a variety of programs to more than 150 New York City schools, taught by nearly 90 professional artists who devote over 45,000 hours to more than 30,000 Pre-K through high school students.
