No where else in the world can you find the range of disciplines in one school. Over the last 50 years as we forged new programs, built our home in New York and expanded to our global academic centers, institutes emerged. Each are built with shared values, common goals, and a priority for putting students first. The result – a place where artists and scholars create the future.
Visiting students and non-majors are invited to take classes during January Term, Spring at Tisch, and Summer. Earn credits towards your major or minor, build your résumé with an internship, or take classes to change careers. Come be inspired by New York City and our international sites.
The Office of Special Programs at Tisch School of the Arts provides access to the arts. Whether you’re an NYU or visiting college student, high school student or working professional, we provide you with the introductory exposure to the performing or cinematic arts and the advanced-level training to grow your craft.

Open Arts in cooperation with Performance Studies and the Initiative for Creative Research will be welcoming 2017 Artist in Residence Jill Sigman back to Tisch for a book signing in celebration of her new book TEN HUTS, published by Wesleyan University Press. The event will feature an introduction and opening remarks by Andre Lepecki.
ABOUT THE BOOK: An artist’s book that explores the ability of art to engage us and re-envision our environment, Ten Huts documents a series of site-specific huts that were hand built from found and repurposed materials ranging from the mundane (e-waste and plastic bottles) to the bizarre (circus detritus, dental molds, and mugwort grown on the banks of a toxic creek) in landscapes as varied as industrial Brooklyn and the Norwegian Arctic. Each of the extraordinary huts in this full-color book is a structure, a sculpture, and an emergency preparedness kit that raises questions about sustainability, shelter, real estate, and our future on this planet. Ten Huts features an artist essay by Jill Sigman and 499 illustrations, along with essays about The Hut Project by Thomas Hylland Eriksen (anthropology), André Lepecki (performance studies), Matthew McLendon (art history), Elise Springer (philosophy), and Eva Yaa Asantewaa (dance). Also includes a foreword by Pamela Tatge.
