Alumni Studio Program

The Alumni Studio Program provides low-cost studio rentals to alumni, enabling alumni to stay connected with the PAFA community and foster the next productive period in their studio practice as visual artists.

Program participants pay $200 per month and provide a refundable $200 security deposit, for a total of $400 due at signing. Participants will have a studio in the Samuel M.V. Hamilton Building, with secure 24-hour access (some restrictions during holidays and inclement weather) and a climate-controlled environment.


The 2019-20 program runs September 1, 2019 through May 31, 2020.

Applications for the 2019-20 term are open.
