Thanks so much for your interest in the MFA in Visual Narrative program at SVA. On Saturday, January 14, we invite you to join us at our information session here at SVA, from 1-3:30PM. (And meanwhile, we would love to hear your story too! Send in your story profile and receive a goodie bag and deluxe gift.)
Here 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.
All candidates are encouraged to submit applications by February 1 to be considered for first-round reviews and merit-based awards, as well as the Educator’s Scholarship. Remaining admissions and awards will continue on a rolling-deadline basis as space allows, meaning we review until we have 20 irresistible candidates. One of them could be you! Please take a look at the FAQ and the Application Guides on our site for both standard and Educator's Scholarship applicants. And please don't hesitate to contact us directly anytime at all--we love hearing from you.
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; 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.
Following the info session, we will be having a short tour of the RisoLAB. Bring some 8 1/2"x 11" black and white images to experiment with.
