“Our young and vibrant low-residency Master of Fine Arts program offers students a unique opportunity to experience technical, conceptual and professional artistic growth. At the same time, it provides a community that will enrich the students life in ways that are fundamental to developing and sustaining a professional level of artistic practice.

The ten-day residencies are concentrated retreat-like experiences. Each student is given personal individual care and guidance from highly qualified faculty. Our objective is to see each student dig deep into the meaning of his or her work and create a passionate work ethic that will build upon conceptual and technical learning and serve as the foundation for their entry into a professional artistic life.

While maintaining a high standard of academic rigor, our MFA environment responds to cultural shifts and developments in academic theory while also accounting for individual student needs; this flexibility allows us to deliver a constantly evolving Master of Fine Arts degree rooted in traditional pedagogy.”
