July 31 to August 9, 2018 will mark the next summer session of the low-residency MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts program at Sierra Nevada College. We are excited to invite prospective students to join our growing community of artists and thinkers. With rolling admissions, students will complete their MFA in five consecutive residencies regardless of the semester in which they enter.
The program consists of two intensive 10-day, on-campus residencies during summer and winter sessions over the course of 2.5 years. During the fall and spring semesters, students will work in their home studios and continue relationships with faculty mentors and fellow colleagues remotely through online seminars and other points of contact.
Our summer 2017 residency was a huge success. With current students participating from a variety of locales, media, and discourses, a vital and compelling cross-disciplinary community is forming and growing. Faculty for the program will continue to include a rotating list of prestigious Visiting Artist Faculty, made up of working artists and teachers from across the country as well as current members of the SNC Fine Arts Faculty.
