Introduction YOUNG VISIONS 2022: Artwork from Studio in a School June 8-14, 2022 Christie’s New York

The Studio in a School Association is proud to present Young Visions 2022: Artwork from Studio in a School, an exhibition hosted by our cultural partner, Christie’s New York. With over 200 vibrant artworks, this exhibition highlights the outstanding artistic achievements of students from Studio in a School’s visual arts education programs. Studio serves children and teens from pre-school through twelfth grade at New York City public schools and community-based organizations in all five boroughs. We are elated to include artwork from students in Studio programs in Cleveland, Ohio, and Newark, New Jersey. This marks a first for Studio, after expanding in-school programming to new cities in 2016 through the Studio Institute.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, the visual arts remain more vital than ever, providing children with much-needed opportunities for social and emotional growth and an outlet to explore their feelings and experiences. Throughout the pandemic, Christie’s partnered with Studio to produce digital exhibitions. Young Visions 2022 is especially meaningful as our first in-person exhibition with Studio since 2019. The exhibition brings together exceptional student artworks from the schools and communities Studio proudly works with. Seen collectively, these artworks powerfully underscore the joy, curiosity, imagination, and promise of the city’s next generation. We are immensely grateful to our Studio Artist Instructors for their hard work and dedication during a challenging year as New York City’s schools returned to in-person instruction. We are so proud of how our Artist Instructors, school partners, and students have navigated this transition. We hope this exhibition will bring joy to everyone who sees it.

Working with Studio Artist Instructors, students observe, imagine, and interpret the people, places, and things that make up their lives. Young Visions 2022 showcases students’ development of skills and capacities as reflected in their artistic choices. Beyond the artworks included here, this exhibition honors the effort, learning, growth, and creativity of every child who participated in Studio’s programs this year. Young Visions 2022 | 3


Letter from Patricia Hewitt Acting Board Chair

Studio in a School’s annual culminating exhibition, Young Visions, is always a cause for celebration, and this year even more so; after a two-year hiatus from large-scale events, Young Visions, returns to the beautiful galleries at Christie’s New York. With over 200 artworks created by students, this exhibition truly captures the breadth and scope of Studio’s visual art programs. Young Visions honors the creative voice and vision of our students. These artworks are a testament to the outstanding artistic achievement made possible through Studio’s programs and pedagogy. Through deep exploration of materials and open-ended creative prompts, Studio Artist Instructors set the stage for creativity to flourish. This exhibition would not be possible without the support of our Artist Instructors and administrative staff. We are grateful to our team for their hard work, dedication, and all the warmth, kindness, knowledge, and creativity that bring our programs to life! Ultimately, Young Visions is a celebration of the schools, families, and students with whom we are so proud to work. This exhibition enables us to honor our partnerships with so many beloved schools and community-based organizations in New York City as well as Cleveland, Ohio and Newark, New Jersey. To all the sites participating in this exhibition, we thank you.

Art and Activism Art is a powerful way to express ideas and emotions, to take action and stand up against injustice. Through Studio in a School NYC’s Art and Activism curriculum, students learn to think critically about the world around them, to give voice to their unique perspectives, and to understand the perspectives of others. In the lower grade curriculum, students created oil pastel self-portraits that reflect close observation, depicting what is unique and beautiful about their own skin, hair, and facial features, while learning what is unique and beautiful about others. This unit supports students’ selfawareness, confidence, pride, and positive social identities, while also encouraging their awareness of and appreciation for human diversity. In the middle school curriculum, students created collages that explore and express multiple aspects of their identities. They learned how to create impactful designs that express who they are, using the medium of collage. Through sharing and discussing each other’s work, students built empathy, respect, understanding, and connection. Opposite:

MLL Art Lab

Studio NYC’s Multilingual Learner (MLL) Art Lab was designed to support the language acquisition skills of Multilingual Learners, who comprise 13% of all NYC students. We employed a co-teaching and co-planning model that integrates language supports into our lessons and reserves a separate day for reflective discussion each week, using visual art as a shared experience and entry point for students who are new to English. Art lessons were aligned with age-appropriate benchmarks in the Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Visual Arts; the reflection day included lessons developed to further rich language skills and rigorous inquiry through related close looking at works of art, sketching, writing, and discussion. Our work has demonstrated that these strategies and approaches are highly effective for all learners. We are grateful for our close partnership with the New York City Department of Education Office of Arts and Special Projects and funding from New York Community Trust, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and City Council.

Studio Institute: Art from New Jersey and Ohio

Studio Institute shares program models and develops artist partnerships with communities outside of New York City. Works from students in New Jersey and Ohio are on display for the first time in Young Visions. Through the Creative Start program, Studio Institute provides early learning opportunities for young learners and educators. These works, from our partnerships with La Casa de Don Pedro in Newark and East Orange School District in New Jersey, reflect the joy of discovery as students aged two to four explore painting and collage for the first time. Also on exhibit are works from students at the Clara E. Westropp and Mary B. Martin Schools in Cleveland, Ohio, where Studio’s in-school residencies serve students from Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade. Working in a variety of media the students explore and create, while making connections to other lessons and discovering their inner artist and creativity.
