About EA Art School
For more than a century, Educational Alliance Art School has been a platform of opportunity by which New Yorkers of all ages and backgrounds have pursued creative expression, skill acquisition, and arts appreciation. Seminal artists—including revolutionary American sculptors Chaim Gross and Louise Nevelson, as well as the great Abstract Expressionist painter Mark Rothko—have served as students and faculty here, and today, the Art School at Manny Cantor Center is one of New York City’s premier community art schools, with an expansive selection of classes and workshops to choose from.

Our classes feature personalized instruction in a small-group setting. We are committed to serving the greatest diversity of students, out of our belief that everyone, regardless of age, ethnicity, or socio-economic status, should have the opportunity for self-expression and lifelong learning.
