Dear Readers,

I hope that during my hiatus the articles in this blog have continued to be a valuable resource. I am now ready to roll out a project I’ve had in mind for quite some time – the MFA Student Interview Series. While I will continue to research and write on a variety of topics, I would now like to bring in new voices – that of current MFA students – because every experience and prospective is unique.

I’ve begun by reaching out to students I’ve met at various events, and will continue with the Call for Entry below. The call is open to all current MFA studio art students in at least their second semester, and the only requirement for inclusion is that the interview is completed fully and thoughtfully. The incentive for interviewees is increased exposure to their work and community building, and the benefit to readers is a greater scope of insight.

The first interview of the Series will be posted this week, and in the meantime – spread the word!

-Jessica

MFA Student Interview Series | Call for Entry 

Location: online, The MFA Guidebook for Studio Artists (Crafthaus blog)

Deadline: ongoing

Eligibility: open to all current MFA studio art students (second semester or later)

 

I created The MFA Guidebook for Studio Artists as a result of my own journey – from deciding to attend grad school through completing my program and beyond. Throughout the process I felt there was a lack of studio art-specific information online and, thus, decided to create a blog to address that need. I have researched and written on a variety of topics, and would now like to bring in new voices of current MFA students.

The MFA Student Interview Series is aimed at building a community and conversation among MFA students, sharing advice with prospective and current students, and providing a public forum to view student work. Participants will respond to a written interview – 8 open-ended prompts – and will share 3 images of their work. The interview and images will be posted on The MFA Guidebook for Studio Artists, to be shared with the Crafthaus community and accessible to the general public.
