Founded in response to a 19th century state edict requiring city public schools to include classes on drawing, the Massachusetts College of Art & Design is an art school in Boston. MassArt confers a Bachelor of Arts degree featuring 18 artistic concentrations and all students are required to take Liberal Arts and History of Art courses as part of the curriculum. The campus includes eight galleries that display student and faculty artwork for the public throughout the year. Located in one of the cultural capitals of America, MassArt is a short walk from the Museum of Fine Arts and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
MassArt is a tremendous place for artists that are seeking a tight-knit community. You are surrounded by people who are passionate (for the most part) about art and creating. The faculty here is absolutely incredible and hearing opinions from working artists makes all the difference.
