Founded in 1875 and housed in the same building since 1892, the Art Students League offers more than 130 classes (ranging from painting to etching to wood sculpture) in five major fields. Each of these fields has its own designated space: welding rooms and a kiln on the basement level, for example, and studios for drawing, printmaking, lithography, and more across five floors. There’s also a gallery—which displays both students’ and instructors’ works, in addition to hosting curated shows—as well as a modest art store and a small library. Except for courses designed specifically for children, classes aren’t geared toward any particular skill level. But some of the more technical ones—metal sculpture, for example—are better suited for students with at least some familiarity with the medium. Classes average around 20 students and registration is by the month, starting at any time.
