Go inside the landmarked American Fine Arts Society building to see where famous artists like Jackson Pollock, Georgia O’Keefe and Robert Smithson learned their craft at the Art Students League. The league’s Digital Communications Manager, Rudy Bravo, and Assistant to the Executive Director, Allison Green, will lead guests through the historic 1892 building to see inside galleries and studios and learn the storied history of the renowned art school. Insiders will see current exhibitions and inside the classrooms where students hone their craft in a variety of artistic mediums.

The Arts Student League was founded in 1875 to explore and express ideas outside the artistic norms of the time and over the past nearly 150 years has turned out some of the most renowned names in American art history. Today, over 5,000 students a year take a wide range of affordable art classes at the Arts Students League under the direction of world class artists and teachers.
