Activities

The Saturday Program is a free Art & Architecture Program for NYC public high school students. We offer free classes in Drawing, Graphic Design, Painting, Sculpture, Sound Composition, Architecture and Portfolio Preparation.

All classes include ‘hands-on’ studio work (with free classroom supplies), creative writing workshops, and field trips to cultural sites. All classes make field trips to museums, galleries and artists’ studios, and include Creative Writing workshops integrated into the visual arts curriculum. Each year the program culminates in April with a public Exhibition and Spoken Word Performance.

All high school seniors enrolled in the Saturday Program receive individual advisement on applying to colleges and preparing their art & architecture portfolios.

Students do not need prior experience.

Eligibility

The Saturday Program Only Accepts Students From New York City Public High Schools, Grades 9-12. (Recent Graduates And Students Of Ged Or Alternative Programs May Be Considered).
