The SVA BFA Fine Arts Department offers concentrations in all art forms, from Painting to Bio Art. Our state-of-the-art Facilities allow students to experiment in a wide variety of projects and media, such us Digital and 3D Printing, Textiles, or Wood.
With a faculty of active artists, critics and curators, a distinguished roster of guest lecturers and various exhibition opportunities, the department prepares students to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing field head on.
During their first year, BFA Fine Arts students take a general survey of world art and literature along with six-hour Foundation studio classes designed to build essential technical skills in a variety of media. In their second and third years, they explore Photography, Sculpture, Printmaking, Video Art and digital narrative. In the fourth year, they are given their own studio space, where they meet with a team of faculty members for discussion, critique and weekly feedback.
