Admission Requirements

Rinehart School of Sculpture (MFA)

The Rinehart School of Sculpture's goal is to train artists for the 21st century, including the art of the moment, and to make sure that each student understands the implications of his or her work. Rinehart's 10 students work in many media, from performance and video to traditional metals and stone.

Who Should Apply

The Rinehart School of Sculpture accepts a select group of practicing artists who reflect a diversity of creative perspectives. These students create a vibrant, stimulating community that is both challenging and supportive of individual exploration.

Those considering the Rinehart School of Sculpture may also want to consider other MFA programs that engage students in studio explorations in space and time. Those whose work explores 2D and 3D may consider the Mount Royal School of Art; those interested in a low-residency program may consider the Low-Residency MFA in Studio Art.
