I visited MFA II’s Jeremy Herrmann and Sirena Laburn in their studios to take some photographs. These two painters serve as our student representatives, as elected by the students. They sit on the board and act as a liaison between the administration and the student body. Jeremy works in the Green Room Studio, a lightfilled space on the top floor of the buildings. There are views of Greenwich Village rooftops out of the southern windows. Sirena paints in the Fireplace Studio, a lovely workspace with a marble fireplace and a tall window.
Ariel Kleinberg and Fukuko Harris- November 15-21
The Student Gallery is organized and run by students, and gives them the opportunity to see their work outside the studio in a different, independent context while presenting it to their peers and the public. Shows can feature finished works or works-in-progress, and are framed, curated and hung by the students themselves.
Students are also responsible for publicizing the show, mailing invitations and hosting an opening reception. The work is discussed in a seminar held in the gallery, conducted by the exhibiting students.
Exhibitions are usually two-person shows, although group exhibitions from painting and sculpture ateliers may also be featured as part of the program.

Every week, a new student exhibition opens in the upstairs student gallery. These exhibitions usually feature a pair of students who curate, hang and put on the opening themselves. Past openings have featured bands, DJ’s, and elaborate food spreads. These openings are a time for the community to come together at the end of the week to view and discuss the work being produced in the studios.
This week Karin Malpeso and Lauren Jones displayed their work.
On Sunday, October 20th, young artists from High Schools across New York City traveled to 8th street to draw from the model. Artists Jill Nathanson and Josef Zutelgte led students in an exploration of form, contours, and composition. Students worked with ink, charcoal and graphite in the historic sky lit drawing room at The New York Studio School, and the improvements from drawing to drawing were exciting.
We will be starting a weekly course for teens this winter 2014 on Sundays. For more information, get in touch at email@example.com.

The September High Line Marathon has quickly become a favorite session at the school. The Park affords striking views of the Hudson River, Chelsea architecture, and the streets below. Students work in various media, graphite, charcoal, and watercolor, directly from their experiences in the park. Then, in the ateliers on 8th Street, students explore spatial and conceptual ideas from their experiences in the park. Jim Plunkett and Joe Santore are the instructors.
