Applications are being accepted for the New York Arts Practicum, an experiential summer program in New York City where advanced undergraduates, recent graduates, and graduate students participate in art-making and intellectual culture outside of the traditional confines of the art school. The program centers around a practicum with an active artist, a critique/seminar, and weekly site visits to artist studios, galleries, and museums.
Through the intensive process of working with an artist on a day-to-day basis, participants gain a view of their near futures as artists, learning models for negotiating a creative life outside of school in an expanded field of art production. The Practicum Mentors are: Sara Greenberger Rafferty, David Horvitz, Eva and Franco Mattes, Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga, Mark Tribe, and Caroline Woolard, with two more to be added shortly.
The critique/seminar and site visits breathe new life into the art student's conventional modes of study.
The 8 week New York Arts Practicum begins June 25th and ends August 17th, 2012. Priority application review begins April 2nd; the application deadline is April 16th.
Academic credit is earned through arrangements with participants’ home institutions.
