New York Studio Residency Program—Brooklyn, NY


This esteemed learning experience allows students to become immersed in the many cultural resources of New York City.

Each semester, a group of students from art schools around the United States, including one MCAD student, receive individual studio spaces and partake in weekly critique sessions as they work toward an end-of-semester group exhibition. The program also includes a diverse seminar/visiting-artist component and gives a comprehensive introduction to the New York art world.

New York Studio Residency students earn fifteen credits and a letter grade towards their undergraduate or graduate degree.
