Make Your Own MFA

We want to learn as much about making art and the business of art as we can, but we don’t want to go to art school to do it. So we’re going to make our own art school. We are each designing our own personal MFA programs, filling up our toolboxes with the skills and knowledge we need to further our goals.

Want to make your own MFA? Here are some suggestions!

If you want to join in and need help or ideas, feel free to comment on a post here, send us messages on Instagram, or email us at

  1. What are your goals? Write them down. Be specific.
  2. Search the internet for classes, books, and other resources that will help you reach those goals. Be intentional. Look for things that are going to stretch you, not just show you the same techniques you already know how to do. Take a look at our plans, linked above for ideas of where to start.
  3. Get to work. Be intentional about doing the classes and taking what you need from them.

We’ll have lots more to say about this in future posts and we hope you’ll follow along!
