Looking to flex your creative muscles? Whether you’re an artist, a writer, or an aspiring artist or writer, we offer classes and workshops for all skill levels and interests.

Studio Arts

A vibrant, creative scene lives just below ground level in our expansive art studios. The Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan’s studios welcome beginners into a supportive, hands-on environment and offer students with intermediate to advanced skill levels an opportunity to master new, more complex techniques. Explore all of our classes in ceramics and visual arts. All studio arts classes are in person.


Through our association with New York Writers Workshop, which serves a thriving community of aspiring writers, we offer a variety of classes and workshops in the areas of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry to hone your skills and get your creative juices flowing. New York's best-known writing instructors lead supportive yet rigorous class discussions of student work. All writing classes are virtual.

Help us continue to ensure accessible programming for everyone. Please support the Arts at the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan.
