This program provided me with the skills, techniques and advice any young artist needs in order to create their own artistic identity.

In three weeks, I learned how to use different mediums in ways that I normally wouldn’t think of. I learned to expand the types of art I created. I took away valuable information not only about creating art for my personal enjoyment, but also about how to build a strong portfolio for college applications.

I absolutely adored the studio time and I also loved my time in the 2D and 3D classes as the teachers had such an excited attitude towards teaching the us new skills and challenging us.

The program provided an environment for students to create their own work while still challenging them to learn new skills.

The teachers were great. Very supportive and gave a lot of technical information that she found helpful.

Nice combination of coursework, explorations, meeting other students and getting to know Tufts

The program is a great way to be exposed to interdisciplinary art and find different mediums to try in a new environment. I would also say it’s a great way to get to know Tufts and all it has to offer, especially to students who are interested in a wide variety of things.

SMFA Pre-College is an interdisciplinary program that teaches you a whole ton of things in a short amount of time. It can change your way of thinking and of seeing the world.

The people and teachers were great! And I also learned a lot about art and the different forms.

I loved being pushed to explore different art forms while having the option to create what I wanted to. There was enough structure in the program to teach us new things, but there was also an ample amount of free studio time for us to work independently. I think that I left this program with much more passion for art and a curiosity to further develop skills in using other media.
