PAFA’s School of Fine Arts offers a world-class professional education that focuses exclusively on the success of the emerging fine artist. With over 200 years of experience in training artists, we nurture the artistic development of our students. Our priority is the quality, comprehensiveness, and relevance of a fine arts education to develop and pursue an artistic vision wherever it may lead.
Our small size includes a close-knit and diverse community of students, faculty, and staff. The student-faculty ratio of 7:1 allows each student a strong working relationship with each of their teachers. Our world-class facilities and exhibition spaces give you the physical tools to excel, and all fourth-year and graduate students receive their own personal studio.
