For Educators

StudioLab is the Abrons’ pioneering approach to school-based arts education. Our classes and workshops provide students from pre-kindergarten through college progressive, experiential learning experiences in the performing, visual, literary, and media arts.

We create a place to take risks, be bold, experiment, and embrace curiosity. Fostering and supporting innovative practices, participants are encouraged to dig deep, construct and share meaningful responses, and to think critically. StudioLab is part of the larger artistic and social conversation. Learn alongside professional artists, curators, composers, choreographers, writers, and arts-workers who will help unpack the creative process.

Our residencies in NYC schools support and enhance Common Core Standards, align with the NY State Learning Standards for the Arts, and NYC Department of Education’s Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Arts. The Abrons' programs are among the most affordable in New York City. We provide options for all school budgets, and many of our programs are free or subsidized.

Each year, StudioLab serves thousands of students, families, and teachers through the following programs:
