The mission of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston is to provide an education in the fine arts that is interdisciplinary and self-directed for motivated artists of any age, background or level of experience. This education values cultural, artistic, and intellectual diversity; it embraces a wide range of media; it stresses the development of individual vision; it values the process of art making more than adherence to curricular rules; it stays deeply in touch with the international world of art. If the mission is constant, its practice is always evolving. This is an ideal school for people who are willing to break boundaries and shape the future.
