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. The semesters begin with an intensive 10-day residency in Vermont comprised of student exhibitions, individual and group critiques, faculty and guest lectures, and workshops.
Students continue their studies by completing a series of
interdisciplinary research and writing projects, as well as a pursuing a rigorous and sustaining studio project each semester with guidance from a faculty member and an artist-teacher—a local artist or educator selected in collaboration with the program. Our expertise at VCFA supports all studio practices, from painting, photography and new media, to performance, community arts and social practice.
Students in VCFA’s MFA in Visual Art program can access and form connections 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.
