UT’s Studio Art Graduate Program welcomes all lines of inquiry: spatial, lens-based, 2-dimensional, interactive, sound, and the performative. We are a multidisciplinary program using as an organizational structure the expansive territories of Painting and Drawing, Sculpture + Extended Media, Print, Photography + Media, and Transmedia. MFA students work closely with dedicated and professionally active faculty to fine-tune existing skill sets and develop new approaches, both conceptual and technical. We have built a supportive yet stimulating community in which students are immersed in an environment of discovery, challenged to consider the depth of an individual discipline, encouraged to explore new ones, meanwhile finding overlaps in new and familiar ways.
Used to its full advantage, our curriculum is distinctive to each student’s interests and particular to the assets and research strengths of the Department as well as to The University of Texas at Austin. The curriculum allows for many course options giving MFA candidates progressively more studio time as their investigations become more demanding and distinct. Students develop their artist’s voice, in both the ability to make images and to build intellectually upon the discourse surrounding one another’s practices. Students formulate an ongoing and dynamic dialogue with faculty, peers and visiting specialists allowing for a richly informed approach and experience in art making.
Changes to Locker Use policies in Fall 2020:
Instructors in the Art building should direct students needing a locker to the department’s resource page for current students –https://art.utexas.edu/resources/current-students.
There they will find a link to the online Locker Agreement Form. A completed form must be on file for each locker in use during the long session. See attached flyer for more information.
Due to conditions surrounding the preemptive closure of campus after Spring Break last spring, we are allowing students who were unable to clean out their lockers before the start of the Fall semester to remain in those lockers until the end of Spring 2021. For this reason, there may be limited locker availability. Students should be aware that, unless conditions change, all lockers must be cleared out at the end of the Spring 2021 semester.
