SFAQ [Project] Space patrons will be offered the chance to attend the MFA program and receive a degree from the Tenderloin Institute of Art in an hour and a half course offered on two different Saturdays, to be announced. Instruction provided by MFA Department Chair, Jeremiah Jenkins. From the TIA catalogue:
At the Tenderloin Institute of Art, students will learn to develop a body of work, back it up conceptually, and apply critical reasoning. Students will exhibit their resulting work and walk away with a MFA. The school will consist of 6 stations, each devoted to a particular area of interest: technical skills, conceptual skills, history and theory. Each station will have a task to complete and information on how to complete that task. Students will have exposure to art historical information, conceptual vocabulary, documentation of their work, and exhibition practices. After students complete the stations they will step up to a podium to present their thesis and defend their work. The work will then be on display and students will be able to print their own official MFA certificate.
