“Studio Selections 2021” Celebrates Marvelous Creativity

Studio NYC presents Studio Selections 2021, a virtual exhibition celebrating the marvelous range of creativity of our students—children and teens from preschool through 8th grade at New York City public schools and community-based organizations.

Working with Studio NYC dedicated Artist Instructors, the students observe, imagine, and interpret the people, places, and things that make up their lives.

“Through deep exploration of materials and open-ended creative prompts, Studio’s Artists Instructors provide the space for student vision to flourish.”

— Patricia Hewitt, Interim Board Chair, Studio in a School

40 student works in drawing, painting, and collage are on view in a virtual gallery space created especially for Studio NYC by our cultural partner, Christie’s. These works represent highlights from Young Visions 2021, our recent exhibition transformed into a digital format that spans the full scope of Studio in a School programs.

“I learned that art supports critical thinking skills, students had to decide how they wanted their art to look.”

— Alicia Carrasquillo, lead teacher at P.S. 155 in Manhattan

Studio Selections 2021 celebrates not only the artworks on view, but even more so the hard work, growth, and creativity of every child who participated in Studio NYC’s programs last year – a year that was particularly challenging for everyone.

We are grateful to Christie’s for generously hosting this beautiful digital presentation, allowing us to share our student works with you.
