SMFA at Tufts faculty have dramatically revamped our studio arts curriculum (and our approach to art education) to meet the moment. All SMFA at Tufts courses are being taught virtually, allowing students to participate regardless of their location. The full list of new SMFA at Tufts course offerings is now available.
For students who choose to come to campus, our buildings, studios, and facilities are available for use. Individual studio space is being made available to any undergraduate student by request. Graduate students are able to work in their individual studios in the Mission Hill Building while following social distancing measures.
For students who do to come to campus, art materials and technology required for most courses are highly flexible, and students have been encouraged to work with resources they have available. We have also provided some materials, equipment, and software by mail or no-contact pickup to expand students’ capabilities at home. Studio managers are offering trainings and consultations virtually so students can access their support from anywhere.
