Congratulations to the class of 2016!

On Sunday May 22 the SMFA held our 2016 Commencement. This year’s 195 graduates received degrees or certificates from a range of programs: Bachelor of Fine Arts; BFA + Bachelor of Arts or Science (Combined Degree); Master of Fine Arts, and Master of Arts in Teaching in Art Education in partnership with Tufts and Northeastern universities; and SMFA’s Studio Diploma and Post-Baccalaureate certificate programs. There was an exceptional  line up of faculty, students, and guest alumni speakers who shared accumulated wisdom, stories of personal hardship, and anecdotes from time spent at SMFA and beyond.
