Join us for our Winter Info Session online

NOTE: This event has ended. Thanks for coming! If you missed it, sign up for our newsletter to get news on our events.

We’re ready to answer your questions! We were going to have our Info Session at SVA today, but the weather had other plans. So we’re taking it onto Google Hangouts! Just join us at 3pm today and we’ll be there for you.  We’ll be on hand to answer any questions you may have about our MFA program.

We have 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.

Potential students will learn about the MFAVN curriculum and our philosophy and approach to visual storytelling.

Chair Nathan Fox‘s work has appeared in The New York Times, EW, Rolling Stone, Image, Vertigo, and Marvel Comics, and within projects for MTV, Burton, Nike, 1800, AOL and many more.  His work has appeared in The New York Times, EW, Rolling Stone, Image, Vertigo, and Marvel Comics, and within projects for MTV, Burton, Nike, 1800, AOL and many more.
