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 $250 per month and provide a refundable $250 security deposit, for a total of $500 due at signing. Participants will have a studio in the Samuel M.V. Hamilton Building, with secure access during designated building hours (there will be some restrictions during holidays and inclement weather) and a climate-controlled environment.

All alumni are eligible for the Program. Alumni eligibility consists of any former student who has satisfactorily completed two (2) terms of work from the following School of Fine Arts programs: Bachelor of Fine Arts, Master of Fine Arts, Post-Baccalaureate Certificate program, or the 4-year Certificate program.
