Home > NYFA Learning > Doctor's Hours

Doctor’s Hours offers artists an opportunity for one-on-one consultations with a range of industry professionals in their creative field.

Artists can receive practical and professional advice in person from one or more arts professionals. The programming is offered in a variety of artistic disciplines and some multilingual sessions as well. On occasion, NYFA conducts pro-bono legal clinics, in association with the New York State Bar Association.


NYFA Learning conducts these sessions three to four times annually at NYFA's offices in Brooklyn, serving approximately 200 artists each year. Consultants can be available by request for skype and phone consultations for artists not able to commute to Brooklyn, NY.


NYFA's next Doctor's Hours for Visual and Multidisciplinary Artists (Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, Sculpture, Video, Film, Photography, New Media, Multidisciplinary, Performance Art, Socially-Engaged Practices, and Folk and Traditional Arts) will take place in 2020 on the following dates. Due to concerns related to the spread of COVID-19, upcoming events may take place online or be postponed until a later date. Please stay tuned for more information.

  • April 27, 2020, 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
  • June 29, 2020, 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
