The Master of Fine Arts in Painting at Edinboro University is a three-year program for advanced students with a serious commitment to painting, and new media. The program offers an exciting and comprehensive experience in studio practice, contemporary art ideas, and in community and global interface. The studio and critical curriculum fosters sustained individual work and encourage articulation of an individual voice while immersing the student in the ever-expanding role of the artist in the community.
Students who are seriously committed to traditional studio practices in painting can develop their work in an atmosphere of rigorous formal and intellectual involvement while also being exposed to relevant theories and histories. Studio activity is placed into a professional context, from making the work to its presentation, installation and publicity.
Graduate Students Are Provided With Individual Studios. There are assistantships available.
