New Studio Practice: Fine Arts Major
New Studio Practice: Fine Arts is a multidisciplinary major centered on making, community and entrepreneurship that positions you to flourish and thrive in a competitive 21st century market and the contemporary visual arts world.
In the studios, a supportive community of peers who will embrace you and your visual identity. Internships, visiting artists, guest critics, curators, writers and more will connect you to the community and opportunities.
You’ll apply learned knowledge to the creative world as a responsible art citizen and make visual work with a comprehensive understanding of how your creative identity relates to the world around you. As a graduate, you’ll live a sustainably creative life, changing the world one person at a time.
In New Studio Practice: Fine Arts, you will have the choice to focus your practice in a single field, such as photography or painting, or work across approaches. With the support of your NSP advisor, you’ll create your own path while honing your skills and deepening your interests.
Fine Arts in the world. Our fine arts graduates are influential in their communities, often using their creative path to better the world around them. MIAD fine arts students are regularly selected for the prestigious Yale Norfolk Summer Program.
