MICA’s pioneering summer MFAST program was the first of its kind. It allows experienced artist to complete the MFA in four six-week summer residencies and three winter critiques on MICA’s campus. With independent work during the academic year, the culmination of which is the MFA in Studio Art Thesis Exhibition. MFAST offers its students the time, space, community, and facilities to develop a professional body of work in such concentrations as painting, mixed media, sculpture, and photography, without disrupting their ongoing careers.
