By studying at SFAI, students become part of a community of artists at one of the nation’s most prestigious schools of higher education in contemporary art. For 140 years, SFAI has been a magnet for adventurous, innovative thinkers, and it’s the perfect place to get your hands dirty, experiment, and express yourself.
Classes take place in our historic and inspiring studios and are led by talented, experienced artists. We encourage students to enroll in both morning (9:30–12:30) and afternoon (1:30–4:30) classes. You can relax between classes and eat lunch at the SFAI café; spend time in the SFAI library, which has over 20,000 art books, magazines, and videos; or participate in one of our lunchtime social events.
An on-campus exhibition of all student work will be held on Friday, August 9 from 5-6pm.
In addition to studying in a traditional studio environment, students participate in group learning sessions during lunch that encourage interdisciplinary artwork and allow for interaction among all students, faculty, and staff. These sessions take place between classes and will include visiting artist talks, hands-on workshops, collage, and idea-driven exercises.
As food options on campus are limited in the summer, we have arranged for a balanced and healthy lunch plan that we require all full-time YAP students to participate in. Half-time students are encouraged to participate in the meal plan and join us for our weekly lunchtime activities!
