Spotted in Brooklyn Heights... 📚💓 #gettoknowtheneighborhood #brooklynheights #nyartsprogram
One of the best things about Brooklyn Heights is the Promenade. You can walk, bike, skate, run, sit, or crawl (maybe) along the East River with a beautiful view of Manhattan in front of you and the peace and quiet of Brooklyn Heights under your feet (or wheels). If that's not close enough to the water for you, head down to the piers! #gettoknowtheneighborhood #brooklynheights #nyartsprogram
#TB to this Charlie Morrow performance piece from the 70s! The NY Arts Program had a handful of students intern with Morrow, an influential sound artist, composer, and performer. This beautiful photograph was taken by a NY Arts Program student during one of Morrow's pieces in 1970. #tbt #charliemorrow #nyartsprogram

The Mason Company built this candy factory in Brooklyn Heights back in 1892. While the company's most famous sweets, Mason Mints and Dots, are still sold today, the factory is no longer in use (which is too bad, supposedly they used to throw candy to children from the factory windows). Now a residential building, the old factory still stands with the historic candy advertisements painted on its sides. NYAP students will be living just a short walk away from the Peaks Mason Mints Candy Factory this fall! #gettoknowtheneighborhood #brooklynheights #nyartsprogram
Throwback to Beth Shirk's internship with Deborah Remington in 1975 #tbt #nyartsprogram #deborahremington
Today's #alumnispotlight features NYAP alum, Kristen Canda. Here is what Kristen has to say about her current work: "I’m focusing on observing and documenting my daily life and capturing small details of my surroundings in order to analyze my relationship to the world and the people around me. In my work, I stress shape and color relationships to record these experiences and attempt to construct an accurate representation of what I recognize to be a detailed account of a subject."
Brooklyn Heights is a neighborhood rich with history. The streets are lined with beautiful brownstones, many of which were built before the Civil War. NYAP students will have the best of both worlds next semester: hopping over the East River to Manhattan with ease and calling beautiful Brooklyn Heights home! #gettoknowtheneighborhood #brooklynheights #nyartsprogram
Lady Liberty captured by NYAP students in 1977 - she hasn't aged a bit!

NYAP alum, Olivia Fu, is an illustrator, animator, and experimental zine maker. Fu received her MFA in the Illustration Practice program at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Much of Fu's work addresses womanhood, identity, sexuality, and the absurdity of life. #alumnispotlight #nyartsprogram
