Low-Residency MFA

This low-residency MFA Program at SNC uses an interdisciplinary approach to art-making. The program encourages participants to consider how we engage the material and social worlds of our respective environments—from personal, to political, to planetary.

“The unique nature of this program creates unparalleled one-on-one time between students and faculty, extending throughout the year. Rarely have I had the chance to follow the artistic development of students to such a degree. Building sustained relationships with students allows us to develop approaches, toolkits, and points of view, laying the groundwork for making remarkable work far into the future.

Rigorous and independent, site-specific and spread across the globe, community-minded and a thoroughly unique experience, the MFA-IA program at Sierra Nevada College holds untamed multitudes!”

Sameer Farooq, Visiting Faculty
