This low-residency, 60-credit interdisciplinary MFA program is designed for experienced artists who want to pursue graduate study without disrupting their ongoing careers. The emphasis of the program is in integrating practice with theory, where students are encouraged to be independent thinkers and researchers who may focus within one specific medium or work across various media.

News and Upcoming Events

The Sandbox Studio in Chestertown, Maryland, is hosting “How to Draw the Wind: Notational Drawings,” a solo exhibition of works by MFAST faculty member Renee van der Stelt. This exhibition includes drawings on paper, works made with Big Bluestem (a native perennial grass), a map of bird migration routes, and a video of shifting morning wind. These works represent a search for greater awareness of experiences and relationships with naturally occurring movements and objects as well as with weather events seen or felt in rural locations.
