Due to COVID-19, students registered for on-site classes must comply with the Museum Health and Safety protocol and the New York State Travel Advisory

Because NY State strongly discourages non-essential interstate travel, on-site classes are currently only open to NY State residents. If your selected class is full, please email [email protected] with your name and phone number to be added to the waiting list. A health questionnaire and temperature scan will be required before attending on-site classes. Please call +1 607.438.5100 with any questions.

Summer 2021 Classes

We have made the careful decision to cancel The Studio’s program of on-site Summer one-week and two-week intensive courses. While this is disappointing, the health and safety of our instructors, students, and staff is our highest priority.  

We have replaced our traditional on-site Summer classes with a line-up of online classes. These online classes opened for registration February 15 and are available for registration now.  Class enrollment is first-come first-served. 

Spring and Fall Classes

Spring and fall class registration (and summer 2021 online class registration) is on a first-come, first-served basis. If a class is full you can add yourself to a waiting list. As space opens, we will contact you. Experience has shown that we do receive cancellations and people do get into classes from waiting lists.

Summer and Winter Classes

Summer and winter on-site one- and two-week intensive classes are filled by a lottery and application process. Please note our on-site intensive classes for Summer 2021 have been canceled. We will resume applications for Winter 2022 and Summer 2022. Applications must be received by March 15 for summer intensive classes and October 15 for winter intensive classes. There is a non-refundable application fee of $20 to apply for up to two classes and $10 for each additional class. After the lottery process, if spaces are still available they will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. If a class is oversubscribed, you will be placed on a waiting list. We do receive cancellations and people do get into classes from waiting lists. If a space opens we will contact you immediately.

We will notify you by email by March 30 for summer intensive classes and October 30 for winter intensive classes of your class status. Full payment must be received by May 15 for summer intensive classes and December 1 for winter intensive classes.

After May 1 and December 1, when all payments have been made, we know if a class still has openings. We encourage you to contact us by email at [email protected] or by phone at +1 (607) 438-5100 after these dates to see if there are still openings and before applying. Submitting an application requires an application fee. Experience has shown that we receive cancellations and people do get into classes from waiting lists.
