Founded in 1876, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts is a division of the world-renowned Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The School is led by Christopher Bratton, who serves as both the President of SMFA and as the Deputy Director of the MFA, as well as on the SMFA Board of Governors, made up of experienced administrators and trustees.
At the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, you'll shape your own artistic process by choosing from an expansive range of studio art courses in 13 areas of study.
There is no required foundations program in the studio arts. Instead, with the support of advisors and mentors, you create your own individual course of study. It's a unique and rewarding process that enables you to experiment across media and evolve your art practice as you advance.
