Distinguished art school faculty. Low faculty-to-student ratio. Remarkable opportunity.
Ten-to-one. That is the PrattMWP student-to-faculty ratio – and it is one of the most important reasons our students are so successful.
All of our young artists are able to work closely in the studio with our esteemed, full-time faculty. The only asset greater than this unique access to our faculty, is the quality of the faculty itself.
The PrattMWP School of Art faculty is made up of active artists who inspire, as well as educate, their students. They teach, exhibit, and participate in campus and community programs and events. This diverse group of gifted educators brings a real-world perspective to the classroom while helping students develop their talents.
Works created by our faculty members are widely shown in public exhibitions and held in private collections throughout the U.S. and abroad. Members of our distinguished art school faculty have served as guest artists, advisors, and lecturers at many arts colleges and universities throughout the world. In the classroom, they work not only to expand their students’ skills and knowledge, but also to convey to their students insight into the world of art and the artist’s role in society.
