residencies and fellowship programs

Each semester, acclaimed artists visit SFAI for short-term and semester-long residencies to share their knowledge and experiences with students and the general public. Whether the forum is a lecture, symposium, class visit, or critique, dialogue and discussion are central. Engaging with these creative professionals—learning about their artistic and career paths; questioning and being questioned—allows students to actively participate in the contemporary art scene and discover models for their own work.
