The Art Practice program at School of Visual Arts offers an interdisciplinary approach to an MFA degree. Artists in the program are not defined or separated by medium or discipline. 


The students in the Art Practice program at School of Visual Arts engage in research-based practices and are encouraged to converse and collaborate across subject matters using a combination of traditional and non-traditional media, technologies and techniques.

Like the nature of the work we hope to help students produce, this program is continuously redefined as a function of the experience of all its participants.

Faculty members include: Angel Abreu, Gaelyn and Gustavo Aguilar, Suzanne Anker, Beth B, Kathy Brew, Lia Gangitano, Laura F. Gibellini, Johan Grimonprez, Thyrza Nichols Goodeve, Baseera Khan, Steven Henry Madoff, Glendalys Medina, Iviva Olenick, Stefan Saffer, Heather Schatz, Sarah G. Sharp, Jovana Stokic, Jacquelyn Strycker, Nicolas Touron and Robin Winters.

Why We Stand Out:

  • Interdisciplinary, research-based program that addresses the intellectual, aesthetic, technical and practical concerns of the artist
  • Low-residency format combines three intensive summer residency periods with four semesters of rigorous online coursework, and the ongoing guidance of a mentor
  • Students will engage with artists, thinkers, curators, critics and culture producers from around the world, participating in a global conversation about the arts
