A League of Legends

Some of the most celebrated artists have learned and taught at the Art Students League. Georgia O’Keeffe, Ai Weiwei, Mark Rothko, Louise Bourgeois, Maurice Sendak, Jackson Pollock, Norman Rockwell, and so many more familiar names have roamed through the halls on their way to becoming an indelible twine of the tapestry of art history. Many of these artists have been honored by PBS and their “American Masters” series. You can learn more about the journey of these artists on their site.
