Come join Nathan Fox, Chair of MFA Visual Narrative for this informal, informative and interactive presentation. Potential students will learn about the MFAVN curriculum and our philosophy and approach to visual storytelling, meet faculty members and hear from current students and alumni, and discover all that the evolutionary low-residency program has to offer.
Following the info session at 6:30pm our students will open their workspaces and clasrooms to present what they have worked on this summer, ranging from interactive maps to role playing games. While the first and second year students show off all their hard work on the tenth floor, there will also be a Print Slam on the eleventh floor in the RisoLAB, which will exhibit and sale of work produced in the LAB this past semester.
MFAVN has created a groundbreaking approach to visual storytelling. Comprised of three eight-week summer sessions in NYC and two academic years online, this low-residency MFA program places equal emphasis on creative writing and figurative visual expression. The program is designed for both working professionals and recent graduates from all creative disciplines who are dedicated to the art and craft of visual storytelling as both artist and author. Meet some of them here. Since the program is online throughout the year, this is a unique opportunity to get a feel for what our low residency summer sessions are like by touring the studios and our RisoLAB facility.
