he New Art School Modality explores and brings to life new forms of teaching, learning, art production, and impact. The school is grounded in an ethos of collaboration, experimentation, and improvisation. 

The New Art School Modality offers a revised version of the art school model, methods, and procedures. It is conceived as a different take on, or an alternative approach to, art school education, one that has fewer guard rails and institutional protocols. There’s intentionally less hand-holding and the apparatus is reduced, all of this as a nod to prior historical moments when making art and being an artist were less reliant on costly infrastructures.

The New Art School Modality will instantiate courses at various “perches” worldwide. Courses are hybrid, online and in-person. Unlike other art schools, it is not place based or centric.

The New Art School Modality evolves from the Black Arts Movement School Modality, also founded by Romi Crawford, which registers the pedagogical tendencies regularly evidenced in the practices of black arts movement practitioners from the 1960s and 1970s.
