We regret that applications are not currently being accepted for the M.A. Summer Program in Studio Art while it is under faculty review.
We encourage interested candidates to consider the M.F.A. in Studio Art.
The M.A. in Studio Art: Summer Program is a three summer, 36 credit program, which embraces diverse media choices. It provides a unique opportunity for professional artists and educators to expand their creative potential and refine their skills in an intensive course of study that combines the resources of a great research university with the excitement of the New York art world. During three intensive summer sessions, students are immersed in the development of their work under the guidance of NYU's renowned faculty in Studio Art and Critical Studies.
A required core sequence engages students and faculty in a dynamic dialogue about contemporary art issues and serves as the foundation upon which students build their studio practice. Students are encouraged to work across disciplines; however, there is the opportunity for special emphasis in art in media (photography, video, digital art). In addition to studio courses in painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, photography, digital art, video art, and ceramics, students take courses in art theory, art history, aesthetics and criticism. Courses are enhanced by individual studio visits with faculty and visiting artists, plus weekly lectures by artists and critics.
Our faculty, adjunct professors, and visitors are influential artists who represent a broad spectrum of practices and ideologies. Core summer faculty include Kirby Gookin, Michael St. John, Keith Mayerson, Lyle Ashton Harris, Gerald Pryor, John Torreano, and Nancy Barton.
Barney Building facilities include studio classrooms and workshops for sculpture, printmaking, painting, drawing, ceramics, metalsmithing, and sewing. In addition to photography labs, digital facilities include a computer studio, digital printing studio, and a video suite. Studio Area details.
During their last summer semester, students exhibit their work in an M.A. Graduate Exhibition at 80 Washington Square East Galleries.
The M.A. in Studio Art: Summer Program is also offered in a combined New York and study abroad format. Go to M.A. Studio Art - Summer in Berlin/New York for more information about this degree option.
