Get your ticket here.

On Saturday, January 14, we invite you to join us at our information session here at SVA, from 1-3PM.

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. Meet some of them here.

Come join Nathan Fox, Chair of MFA Visual Narrative, for this informative and interactive presentation. Potential students will learn about the MFAVN curriculum and our philosophy and approach to visual storytelling, meet faculty members and current students, and discover all that the evolutionary low-residency program has to offer. A question-and-answer session will follow the presentation. This information session is open to the general public free of charge. Seating is given on a first-come, first-served basis.

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. Faculty include such diverse professional storytellers as author Lisa Cron; editor and publisher Bill Kartalopoulos; historian and critic Leonard Marcus; theater director Christina Roussos: writer and artist Ben Marra; photographer Stacy Renee Morrison; artist Jonathon Rosen; illustrator Matt Rota; illustrator, comic book artist and designer Jim Rugg; author Mark Sable; writer/game producer Ben Zackheim and writer Ed Valentine.

Applications are open now for entry into the next class, which starts in June 2017.
