The High School of Art and Design is a Career and Technical Education high school located at 245 E. 56th Street (between Second and Third Avenue) in Manhattan, New York City, New York. It moved from its former location at 1075 Second Avenue, between 56th and 57th Streets in September 2012.
It is operated by the New York City Department of Education.
Students at Art and Design receive two periods of art instruction per day, choosing from among four art majors: cartooning and animation, architecture, illustration (which includes fashion illustration and medical illustration), and new media (which includes digital photography and filmmaking). Applicants must take an entrance exam and present a portfolio to be accepted.
Art and Design's Kenny Gallery, named for the school's founding principal John B. Kenny, hosts monthly art exhibits of student work, in addition to the annual display of Region 9's best student work and the annual faculty art show and sale. The ground floor art gallery faces Second Avenue and is open to the public. The school has a weight room, a library and a black box theater where the Roundabout Theater Company works with students on drama. The theater was donated by the Friends of Art and Design (FAD).
