Cranbrook Academy of Art is a dynamic community of architects, artists, and designers working together to shape the future of visual and material culture. For 88 years, the Academy has been one of the nation’s most distinctive and celebrated graduate-only schools of transformative art and design. It is a place for students who are looking to graduate from their MFA or M.Arch program prepared to immediately enter the industry, launch an academic career, or open their own studio practice.

Applications are now being accepted for the Fall of 2021. This year, there are five full-tuition fellowships available, with priority given to students who contribute to the Academy’s goal of increasing diversity.

To showcase all the Academy has to offer, Cranbrook is launching a full season of webinars highlighting each of their 11 departments. Each webinar will include conversations about what it is like to study at Cranbrook, delivered by each Artist-in-Residence and select alumni. This is a perfect opportunity to take a look behind the curtain at one of the few remaining true artistic communities in the country.

Registration for each webinar is open now. Click on the links below to reserve your spot.

At Cranbrook, there are no formal classes or set schedules, only unlimited studio time and critical discussion of work with your peers and industry leaders. Take some time to join the Academy for a webinar, ask questions, and explore campus in the virtual space. If this is the right environment for you, Cranbrook welcomes your application to join the community.
