  • This is an intensive, studio-based program offering artists the opportunity to develop a practical and theoretical understanding of their art practice in the context of a challenging and supportive faculty of studio artists, art historians and art educators.
  • Students may specialize in the areas of painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, photography and digital and integrated practice.
  • The program is normally two years in length. Through seminars, classes, committee meetings and critiques, an environment is created which enables self-examination, change and growth.
