Announcing our Learning Partnership with The Drawing Center in New York

14 May 2024

Supporting teen and school programs at the historic SoHo institution

As part of the gallery’s ongoing learning programs and initiatives, the gallery is launching a multi-year partnership with The Drawing Center’s education and community programs: Drawing Connections and Drawing All-Stars 3.0.

An exhibition space in downtown Manhattan's SoHo neighborhood, The Drawing Center explores the medium of drawing as primary, dynamic and relevant to contemporary culture, the future of art and creative thought. Its activities are both multidisciplinary and broadly historical, and include exhibitions, publications, and educational and public programs. 

Through its Drawing Connections program, The Drawing Center partners annually with four neighboring Lower Manhattan public schools to provide students with an in-depth visual art experience focused on the medium of drawing.

The Drawing Center’s teen program, Drawing All Stars 3.0, is a free pre-professional development program for high schoolers, grades 9 through 11, led by Teen Art Salon’s teaching artists Isabella Bustamante and Jolene Fernandez in partnership with The Drawing Center. Focusing on New York City’s next generation of artists, the program supports teens to expand their drawing practices and amplify their artistic ambitions. Through discussion and skill-development workshops, young artists build confidence in drafting, planning, and executing works of art, culminating in a large-scale drawing or series by the end of the school year. 

This multi-year education partnership with The Drawing Center will offer opportunities to develop collaborative projects between students and our artists. As part of this new initiative, Drawing All Stars 3.0 participants visited our new Wooster Street gallery and created artworks that drew inspiration from the exhibition ‘Roni Horn.’ A selection of the students’ drawings will be on view as part of ‘Drawing Out,’ The Drawing Center’s annual exhibition of work by New York City elementary and high school students, on view 23 May through 2 June 2024.

To initiate the partnership, a cohort of high school teen participants in The Drawing Center’s ‘Drawing All Stars 3.0’ program explored the drawing practices of artists Joan Jonas and Roni Horn through gallery dialogues and art-making. Teens began with in-gallery drawing activities in ‘Joan Jonas: Animal, Vegetable, Mineral,’ on view at The Drawing Center through 2 June 2024. 

The teen cohort then visited the exhibition ‘Roni Horn’ at Hauser & Wirth New York, Wooster Street for a workshop including collaborative dialogue and art-making. Inspired by Horn’s ‘Slarips’ series and commitment to drawing as her ‘primary activity,’ the teen participants ‘diced’ their drawings and reconstructed their images into new artworks.

The next event in the partnership will be an exhibition walkthrough of ‘Roni Horn’ at Hauser & Wirth New York, Wooster Street with The Drawing Center’s Drawing Connections program.
