Art Institute of Murrow

Welcome to the Art Department

The role of the Art Department and the Art Institute of Murrow, is to provide a facility, curriculum and faculty committed to serving
students of Murrow. It’s a place where students develop knowledge and skills through participation in a unique community dedicated to arts learning. As part of the larger community of Edward R. Murrow High School, the Art Department offers every single students in the building, the opportunity to challenge themselves academically as well as through a wide variety of activities in the arts, even if they are not in the Art Institute.          
The Art Institute introduces students to working artists, museum internships, apprenticeships and the continuous exposure to the arts in New York City.
