The NYK Academy was established in 2002 as the Harlem Studio of Art. It moved to a larger space in the rapidly-growing artist community in the Port Morris section of the South Bronx in fall of 2016.

It continues its commitment to bringing classical training in drawing and painting to the contemporary painter of all levels. 

The drawing course is based on the Cours de Dessin developed by Charles Bargue in the 19th century. Students progress at their own pace through the curriculum, beginning with graphite copies of Bargue drawings, cast drawing in charcoal, and drawing in both graphite and charcoal of live models.

Students prepare to begin painting by completing the color course, a series of exercises based on the Munsell color system. They complete a several limited-palette still-lifes and paintings from the model. They then progress to larger, more complicated paintings utilizing a full palette. All paintings are based on care drawings utilizing the sight-size method of measuring.

Upon completion of the painting program, students may apply for admittance to the Masters Program. They are given a small studio where they develop their own work under the supervision of Ms. Kudlow. They will also be guided in professional development covering all aspects of the business of art, including gallery representation.

Enrollment is available year-round. Students should contact Ms. Kudlow for an interview. Hours are flexible, but it is recommended that students attend at least 10 hours per week. The cost is $400 per month and may be paid monthly.
