The SMFA program was designed by artists, for artists. It puts you, the artist, at the center. You will be encouraged here. You will be pushed. To take risks. To work in a medium you’ve never tried before. You will work with the faculty to develop your own voice, your own point of view; which is why our students, our graduates, go on to define new directions in the arts. Many are pioneers in their field. Others create entirely new fields. The education you receive here will prepare you for a world that is constantly changing and constantly placing very high demands on its participants.
The School of the Museum of Fine Arts is a challenging place and it is designed to be that way. It is an experience that will be profoundly rewarding and in the end, that is what a great education is all about.
