Graduate Art

Providing students with the freedom, support and expertise to become any kind of artist they can imagine.

Located in Los Angeles, one of the world’s great art capitals, ArtCenter’s Graduate Art is an interdisciplinary Master of Fine Arts program that encourages divergent ideas and methods. With a core faculty of 12 internationally recognized artists and writers, an adjunct faculty of 21 and a total of 35 students, we have the highest faculty-to-student ratio of all comparable MFA programs. Students balance rigorous critical, academic and practical coursework with one-on-one studio visits with faculty.

We extend our reach internationally, inviting artists and writers―famous and infamous―as well as historians and philosophers for weekly seminars and our biannual conference series.

We provide students with individual studios and a fabrication shop, as well as access to public gallery spaces and project rooms, from the first term through graduation, when every graduating student mounts a final solo show.
