Description

The National Youth Administration built the Woodstock School of Art in Woodstock NY in 1939.

According to the Woodstock School of Art, “The structures had their beginnings in 1939, when they were commissioned as a school for arts and crafts under the National Youth Administration (NYA), one of the programs in FDR’s New Deal. There were several NYA training camps across the United States, but the one located in Woodstock, New York, provided instruction to rural youth in applied arts such as woodworking, masonry, blacksmithing, and pottery.”
