Designed for all levels of expertise, this course explores a variety of media through which students engage creatively with New York. They receive formal instruction in oils, watercolor, pastel, pencil, charcoal, clay, video, photography, and collage, but spend most of their time outside the studio, capturing the visual splendor of New York. Students exhibit their best pieces at the end of the program.
