One of the two main components of a student’s course of study in the MFA-V program at Vermont College of the Fine Arts is a semester-long studio project in which the student develops and/or challenges specific aspects of their art practice under the guidance of an Artist-Teacher who lives and works in the student’s community. While there is no set prescription for what constitutes this relationship, each Artist-Teacher is asked to engage the student in a rigorous and critical dialogue concerning the conceptual and material issues they confront in their work.
The program has worked with over 1500 artists throughout the United States, Europe, and South America. Every student researches and chooses his or her studio mentor for the semester with the guidance and support of the faculty. Through this process, the program engages with new Artist-Teachers on a continuous basis, expanding the pool of mentors available to our students.
