As an artist and father I do not think I could have earned my MFA without the low-residency program at Goddard. The flexibility of the program allowed me to work full time, study what was most important to me and have time for my family. While at Goddard I created a course of study that involved art, printmaking, and art-history. Most importantly, I was able to look closely at why I make art and the core meaning behind my very personal creative obsession. The faculty and students met me where I was at in an unexpectedly open and inviting way that allowed me to be who I am without judgment and unnecessary criticism. I would be happy to speak with you about the programs at Goddard College and share my enthusiasm for this wonderful MFA program.
