STUDENT & MEMBER INFORMATION
HISTORY OF THE ART STUDENTS LEAGUE OF DENVER Modeled after the famous Art Students League of New York, the Art Students League of Denver first opened its doors in 1987. In 1992, the League purchased the Sherman School at 200 Grant Street and had it designated as a Denver Historic Landmark. The 1883 building has been beautifully restored through generous funding from the Colorado State Historic Fund, major corporations, and individual donors.
