School of Studio Practice

SFAI’s School of Studio Practice offers Bachelor of Fine Arts and Master of Fine Arts degrees that emphasize risk-taking and rigorous engagement with materials, processes, and concepts.

An education at SFAI challenges students to question accepted definitions of art, to build new tools for their practice, to reimagine the venues for the exhibition of art, and to define new audiences for contemporary art. Our extensive programs cut across media and disciplines, allowing students both to broaden their perspective and delve deeply into an area of focus. Through intensive studio work, critical studies classes, curatorial and exhibition opportunities, lectures, internships, and more, students emerge inspired and empowered to make a life in art.
