Dear AICAD friends, We have a great summer program for undergraduates. It gives students a chance to come to San Francisco for 8 weeks, have a studio space on our campus, and earn 3 credits. I think of it as a “taste” of grad school.
summer undergraduate residency program
SFAI’s Summer Studio Residency program combines the benefits of a prestigious artist’s residency with the rigor of graduate-level study in the fine arts. Unique for its demanding critique structure, individualized support, and personalized engagement with internationally recognized artists and scholars, the residency is an eight-week intensive specifically designed for undergraduates or recent baccalaureate graduates wishing to advance and refine their work. The location of the program in San Francisco—a vibrant community with world-class museums, a robust emerging artist scene, dynamic food culture, and breathtaking natural resources—offers students an uncommon urban experience.
Students who pursue this residency must have significant studio experience and demonstrate a readiness for graduate-level work through their statement of intent, project proposal, and portfolio.
