  1. Hey everyone, First post Have decided to return to school this past year and just begun program searching(with sights set on matriculating in 2019). Read a few posts here, and am sure there's heaps of helpful information lurking in the backlogs, but am particularly curious about trans/anti-disciplinary MFA fine art programs. Really don't know that much about programs at large or even many individual programs, so any info is greatly appreciated! Also, if there are any forums that might be helpful for a beginner like myself, feel free to link these as well! For reference: I formally work in "scuplture", but mediums spans clay, fabric, sound, and light. Pretty interested in venturing into installation & conditional art. Looking for a program that'll allow/encourage me to explore all this and more both individually and collectively. Also for reference: I'm located in the USA, but open to looking both within and outside. Heard good things about Goldsmiths in London... Thanks again!
  2. Congratulation to all of you who have been accepted into your MFA program. My MFA journey will continue in Florence Italy. What are the things you are doing now to prepare you for the next 2-3 years? How do you go about your thesis research?
  3. Hi, I'm new to this page and also to the grad school search. I graduated in 2015 and have been working and showing since then, not as much as I would like but you live and you learn and time passes quickly. Anyway, I am starting to look into schools to get ready to visit in the coming year and apply the year after that (I have a great studio space where i'm living promised to me for the next 2 years hence the time line). I'm also going to apply for residencies and I imagine that will help hone my intent and my search for schools, but in the meantime I figured I'd better start. One thing I know is that I am not an expert in any particular medium. I got my degree in printmaking and I'm probably most skilled in drawing first, printmaking second, but my work has been installation that incorporates different ways of working. I also went to alfred for ceramics for a short period. I know I want a fairly open, not too technically based program (for instance I like using ceramics in my work, would like access to that, but I wouldn't want to go somewhere where they focus on in depth technical knowledge of the material). I've also considered starting out in printmaking or drawing/painting and just expanding once I get into the program. Or getting a degree in something so I can teach it but also being able to make the kind of work I want to make while I'm there. I'm wondering if anyone knows of good schools that are very open to that fluidity of focus. Either schools whose programs are inherently interdisciplinary or whose programs aren't too rigid. I'm also pretty sure I can only manage to go somewhere that is fully funded/ can give me a stipend as a t.a.? which I understand requires me upping my game to even be considered. a city is a plus. so obviously I'm looking for a unicorn of a school.
  4. Hey Guys, I remember being in undergrad and sometimes feeling so distant from my peers because I was an international student. Well, here I am again on this voyage about to feel even weirder, this time as a grad student. I thought that we should have a space where we could be able to share experiences, answer questions, give advice, or just a space where you say what makes you feel ok about yourself. Good luck everyone! Disclaimer: I worked with International Services during my undergrad but this does not make me an immigration official. Although I can give my opinion on certain situations based on past experience, I recommend contacting your school directly about these questions.
  5. Hi! I have concerns about beginning the application process this next year, and I would be very grateful to anyone having the time and kindness to offer advice. I'm interested in Cranbrook. I'm hoping to concentrate in sculpture in grad school, and their sculpture department's work looks incredible, and a professor I trust recommends them highly. Does anyone have any experience with Cranbrook, either having applied there, gone there, known anyone else who has any experience? I'm wondering not only if it is the right fit for me, but what sort of financial aid they offer, and very importantly, if I might stand a chance at acceptance. I'm coming from a very small but dedicated undergrad program, with great faculty. It's public but is still one of the best schools in my state (SC) for art. I have only ever had one solo show, and I haven't won many awards for my work. The main area I have experience in is public art and teaching. So, I'm very nervous as to whether I'm ready for grad school. My favorite professor and department head from undergrad are both highly encouraging me to pursue graduate school. The professor asks me about it near every time I see him (pretty much weekly lately). I know that I can get a great recommendation from him (he's done a ton to help me in the past) and at least a good one from my department head, along with recommendations from at least three other art professionals if I ask. I'm currently helping teach at my undergrad as a TA and did the same last year with the other professor. I'm working on a public commission for the campus of my undergrad, finished my first public commission last year while in school, and I have a meeting Monday to discuss another possible project that would be much larger. I have work in this year's ArtField's competition (southeastern competition with 400 artists). I will finish my degree program in industrial welding this summer (to supplement the welding knowledge I gained in undergrad). I hope to apply as an affiliate artist in residence to a nearby residency program, the McColl Center, for the time between finishing my teaching assistantship and when I might start grad school in fall 2017. I don't know, any knowledge helps. I'm not sure what other experiences people try to acquire before applying that I might be lacking. I'm also interested in Bard, VCU, ASU. Because of my undergrad experience, I would love to go to a school with dedicated faculty and stimulating classmates. Good facilities would be great because I can work in a lot of different media, but not as important as dedicated and inspiring people and a great artist lecture series. Thanks!
  6. Hey all, Was wondering if anyone out there had any advice of input on a few post undergrad- pre graduate art programs that are specifically designed to help build a portfolio to apply to grad schools. I have recently been accepted (for the summer) into programs at VCU, the Tyler School of Art, and SVA. I'm specifically looking into the programs for sculpture which I know VCU has a big rep but I'm not sure about the other ones, so I'm reaching out to see if maybe anyone has done one of these summer programs or has any recommendations.
  7. Hey everybody! I'm applying for an MFA in Sculpture starting Fall of 2012 and would love to hear some thoughts about my work and where you think it would fit. graceleelawrence.com At present I'm thinking about the following schools: VCU Carnegie Mellon MICA Columbia Maybe Yale? Any suggestions for back up schools? I'm trying to stay near the east coast but will go wherever works out best. Thanks!
