Our partnership

Studio in a School

Christie’s has a longstanding partnership with Studio in a School, a non-profit founded in 1977 by Agnes Gund. Studio in a School fosters the creative and intellectual development of New York City youth through quality visual arts programs, directed by arts professionals. The organization also collaborates with and develops the ability of those who provide or support arts programming and creative development for youth both in and outside of schools.

For many years, Christie’s has hosted Young Visions, an exhibition of artworks from children across the five boroughs who benefit from Studio’s arts programs. During the pandemic, we lent our website as a platform for Studio to promote students works digitally and have continued to do so over the past three years.

Studio in a School Programs

Studio in a School

Studio’s founding commitment to restore visual arts instruction by engaging professional artists to teach in public schools remains unchanged with programs realised through two divisions:

Studio NYC provides standards-based, sequential visual arts instruction taught by professional artists to 30,000+ students from Pre-K through 12th grade each year, in-school and after-school, in partnership with nearly 200 schools and educational sites in all five boroughs of New York City. Working in economically distressed communities, and with holistic programming that engages students, teachers, administrators and family members, Studio NYC embeds the visual arts into a school’s curricula, culture and community.

Studio Institute provides professional learning programs for educational systems, the dissemination of arts education research and opportunities for high school and college students of limited means to experience advanced studies in the visual arts, to prepare for higher education and to be introduced to careers in the arts and cultural sector. With a mandate to disseminate Studio’s model, the Institute offers programs in Boston, Cleveland, Memphis, Newark, Philadelphia and Providence, as well as in New York City.

In recent months, Studio has built its capacity to reach and engage students in new ways: contributing curricula to schools’ distance learning platforms, providing take-home art kits and lessons via Zoom to high school artists, launching the family-friendly Studio in Your Home on its website and more.

With your support during this challenging time, Studio in a School will continue to nurture each young person’s imagination, self-expression and confidence, no matter where they live or attend school. Please visit the Support page to learn more about how you can contribute to Studio and to the thousands of young people served each year.
