Special Programs & Learning Opportunities to Enhance Art Students’ Course and Studio Work

At PrattMWP, learning and enrichment doesn’t end in the classroom and studio. Our art students are exposed to a wide array of special programs, events, experiences, and opportunities to grow as artists. Some of these programs include:

The Easton Pribble Lecture Series

Named after the renowned late MWPAI Professor of Painting and Drawing Easton Pribble, the lecture series invites working artists to speak and share insights with the students about their career and professional practices.

MWPAI Film Series

The MWPAI Film Series presented by the Institute’s Performing Arts Division highlights the latest releases of independent and foreign films, with two showings on Wednesday and Friday. All showings are free to PrattMWP students providing exposure to the excellent films being produce outside of Hollywood. All films are shown in the Museum of Art auditorium unless otherwise indicated.


PrattMWP boasts one of the greatest academic art programs and learning environments in the northeast.
