During the course of study, you will engage in a team-taught interdisciplinary critique class each semester, as well as one full afternoon each week of individual studio meetings with visiting artists, full-time faculty, and visiting faculty. Seminar and studio courses are also offered as electives.
Students study with faculty who are acclaimed artists, critics, and writers with diverse interests and disciplines who see teaching as an integral part of an ongoing and influential creative practice. We draw our faculty from the surrounding New York art world, and the deeply engaged relationship between them and our students represents the core of our MFA community.
MFA studios and facilities are located in the Department of Art and Art Professions' six-story Beaux-Arts Building at 34 Stuyvesant Street in the East Village. Students have the opportunity to exhibit their work during Open Studios as well as in solo installations and group shows at the Art Department’s 80WSE Gallery.
