Tuition Assistance

Don't let the price of tuition stop you from making art!

IS183 Art School provides scholarships based on financial need, discounts to EBT cardholders, and opportunities for work exchange. Scholarships are also available for local arts educators, thanks to the support of generous donors. 

Our membership program is also a great way to save, especially for families. Members receive discounted rates on class and camp tuition for themselves and immediate family members.
