School of Visual Arts to Offer MFA in Visual Narrative

Prepare to get your story on (yes, even you, overscheduled working professionals), because beginning next summer, New York’s School of Visual Arts will offer an MFA in Visual Narrative. Geared to educating the “artist as author,” the flexible program—an innovative mix of three intensive summer residencies in New York and online study during two academic years—will put equal emphasis on creative writing and visual expression. At the helm will be editorial illustrator and comic book artist Nathan Fox, who has assembled a star-studded faculty that includes Jennifer Daniel, Matt Rota, and Leonard Marcus to teach courses such as “History of Visual Storytelling: The Picture Book” and “Form, Empathy, and Character Play.” Digital media will be prominent throughout the program, and in the third year, each student will produce, curate, and/or publish a narrative thesis in both analog and digital form that will be exhibited in a group show in one of the SVA galleries. Noted Fox, “The MFA Visual Narrative Department at SVA will enable students to become creative, responsible arbiters of visual storytelling, able to shape their own identities, artistic voices and narrative art, regardless of medium.”
