Low-Residency MFA in Studio Art

Studio Arts College International is proud to announce that, starting in May 2017, students can enroll in SACI’s unique new graduate-degree program—the only 3-year Summer Low-Residency MFA in Studio Art offered entirely in Europe by a US-accredited school. Applications for admission to this program are now being reviewed. The application and scholarship deadline is March 15.

For three successive summers, students live and work in Florence, Italy. They pursue a curriculum that integrates practical and critical skills and encourages individual innovation, creative collaboration, mentorships, and instruction from SACI’s outstanding faculty.
