Education Programs Overview

Please note: Joan Mitchell Foundation is not currently offering any studio or portfolio development classes. Through the end of 2017, the Foundation is focusing on research and piloting innovative educational opportunities for the artist community. We look forward to sharing the new education model with you in 2018. 

For those families looking for new art program opportunities, we have created a comprehensive resource directory of various ongoing youth art programs and opportunities in the NYC area. The free booklet is available to download here.

From 1997-2016, the Foundation's Art Education program provided opportunities for both emerging youth artists and working adult artists with inclusive and diverse arts education programming, offered completely free to the public.

The program enhanced the artistic education of young painters and sculptors through studio classes, in concert with other educational opportunities encouraging students to pursue and develop their voice in the arts. Simultaneously, the program supported the artistic development of working painters and sculptors through teaching opportunities, professional development training, and engagement with the artistic community.
