The M.A. in Studio Art: Three Summer Program in Berlin utilizes a contemporary atelier model of studio instruction, with classes designed to organically intersect and flow into one another. The instructional approach takes many forms, including workshops, lectures, seminars, and critiques. Students are expected to develop and refine an individual artistic voice and are regularly provided with personal instruction from faculty and visiting artists, curators, and theorists.
The NYU facilities in Berlin house newly constructed studio spaces for sculpture, digital art, and painting and drawing. Contemporary art theory is fused throughout the program with ongoing lectures, seminars, and visits to museums, galleries, artist studios, and other cultural sites. Students also have the option of studying in Berlin for two summers, and then completing the program in New York City for the third summer session.
The M.A. in Studio Art: Three Summer Program in Berlin provides artists, students of art, and current and prospective art teachers an opportunity to do serious creative studio work for university credit within the most innovative contemporary art scene in Europe.
