one comes purely


A lot has changed since 1892 when the Art Students League moved into their new building at 215 West 57th Street.



But their basic principles have not.

These principles were on display at a recent art show 
I attended.

The League emphasizes the importance of artistic creativity.

They maintain the greatest respect for artists who devote their lives to art’s creation.

They educate students in the process of making art in an environment where anyone can realize his or her full potential. 

An interesting side note is that although the League is steeped in education...

...there have never been any degrees or diplomas...

 ...or any set curriculum. 

From their webpage:

Pure exists.
