Cranbrook Academy of Art Graduate Open House
Please join us on the Cranbrook Academy of Art campus to meet Artists-in-Residence, current students, and alumni, tour studio spaces, learn about life on campus, and visit the Cranbrook Art Museum. Please RSVP for the Graduate Open House on Eventbrite.
Cranbrook Academy of Art offers a singularly unique educational model. At the core, it hinges on the belief that extraordinary things can happen when people are given time and space to explore their work in a supportive and inclusive community.
The Academy is a graduate program free from conventional classes. Instead of a fixed curriculum, we offer an unscripted approach that centers the questions and interests of artists who choose to come here as they strive to make sense of an ever-changing world.
Our unique program offers an intense studio-based experience comprised of 150 graduate students where Artists-in-Residence mentor students in Architecture, 2D, 3D, and 4D Design, Ceramics, Fiber, Metalsmithing, Painting, Photography, Print Media, and Sculpture to creatively influence contemporary culture. The curriculum is structured around self-directed studio work, critique, a rigorous academic program, and a robust schedule of visiting artists, architects, designers, and thinkers.
The Academy is a community of makers all of whom live and practice alongside each other on our extraordinary historic campus. Our graduates not only leave with an MFA or M.Arch degree but a cohort of thinking partners, co-conspirators, and collaborators who will be their creative community for a lifetime.
Find out if the Academy is right for your next step at our Graduate Open House on November 12, from 10am-4pm. Meet Artists-in-Residence, tour studio spaces, learn about life on campus, and enjoy a Collections Wing Tour at the Cranbrook Art Museum.
Our competitive 2-year MFA or MArch programs are ideal for motivated students who want to take their work to the next level. Cranbrook offers opportunities for full tuition support and grants while offering unlimited studio time and full access to our on-site contemporary art museum.
