The ten day residency is a high intensity conversation about the production of visual art. Time during the residency is very structured. The combination of critiques, seminars, lectures, panels, conversations and advisor meetings during the residency are designed with the aim of aiding the student in his or her development into a stronger visual artist. Lectures and seminars are presented by MFA Faculty and visiting artists. The residencies are an opportunity for each student to develop, expand, and question their artistic vision in a process that culminates in a work plan for the semester that takes place between residencies.
