Vermont College of Fine Arts (VCFA) has committed $100,000 in scholarship funding to the MFA in Visual Art incoming class of January 2016. These new funds allow the college to provide each incoming student with a significant scholarship package applied to all four semesters.
Founded in 1991 as the first low-residency program in visual art in the country, the MFA in Visual Art program at VCFA is based on the principle of individualized learning, with both on-campus and off-campus experiences. Each semester begins with an intensive 10-day residency in Vermont comprised of student exhibitions, individual and group critiques, faculty and guest lectures, workshops, and a thematic symposium.
Off-campus, students continue their studies by completing a series of interdisciplinary visual culture research and writing projects with guidance from a faculty member. Students pursue their studio work with formalized mentorship by a local artist selected in collaboration with the program.
Students in VCFA’s MFA in Visual Art program have the opportunity to connect with a roster of faculty members, artist-teachers, artists-in-residence, guest artists, an expansive student body, and a wide network of more than 1,000 alumni located across the country and internationally.
VCFA’s expertise supports all studio practices — from painting, photography and new media, to performance, community arts, and social practice.
