West Nottingham Academy is proud to be partnered with the New York Academy of Art and the renowned artist Eric Fischl for the Eric Fischl ’66 Artist-in-Residence Teaching Program. Each fall, winter, and spring, a visiting graduate of the New York Academy of Art lives and works on campus, teaching classes and working on pieces to exhibit to our community. Students with a greater interest in art can apply for the Aspiring Artists Program, which guarantees one-on-one time with the Artist-in-Residence. This program not only gives students the benefit of working with professional artists, but allows them to witness the dedication that produces great works of contemporary art.
