Studio Art from American University Washington DC is deliberately non-compartmentalized. Students have the option of working in the media which suit the nature of their work as it evolves from their previous experience to that of an active professional. 


Studio Art from American University Washington DC allows for work in painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, digital media, and installation, and students can also work across media. While one evolves as an artist through the mentorship of faculty and visiting artists, the peer community also becomes an intrinsically important component of an MFA education.  


 In addition to their exhibition careers, our graduates also hold successful careers in university education, museum and gallery administration, exhibition coordination, art consulting, and secondary school instruction. Our alumni include
