Yale Norfolk School of Art 2024

May 18 – June 29, 2024

The Yale Norfolk School of Art, established in 1948, is an intensive six week undergraduate summer residency program  for rising seniors.

Byron Kim and Lisa Sigal, the Yale Norfolk School of Art co-directors, are pleased to announce the 2024 session will take place with consideration for the safety and health of the students, faculty, staff and the Norfolk community. Yale Norfolk School of Art will accommodate 25 students who will live in cottages on The Ellen Battell Stoeckel Estate (the campus) and work in the newly renovated Art Barn. Only students who are planning to graduate in 2025 are eligible to be nominated for the program. Students who will have graduated by 2024 are not eligible to apply. Students will follow a curriculum of Yale College art courses including Critical Studies, Advanced Image Making, and Senior Studio. Students will work in individual studio spaces and have access to digital printers, computers, along with some traditional printmaking facilities. 

The resident faculty for 2024 will be Byron Kim, Lisa Sigal and Molly Zuckerman-Hartung joined by four Teaching Fellows selected from graduates of Yale’s esteemed MFA program. In 2024 the themed public lecture series is “Making Light.” Curriculum and readings will be developed around this topic. 

Yale Norfolk is a once in a lifetime experience for young artists and is seeking full support (fee) from all home institutions for their accepted students to attend the program. By successfully completing the program, the students can receive 3 course credits or 9 units towards their respective degrees. This link between Yale Norfolk and participating schools is an important educational partnership that supports young artists in a vital moment of growth. So many of Yale Norfolk’s alumni go on to make significant contributions to the field of art and credit Yale Norfolk with a profound impact on their lives and art. Individuals may not apply directly to the program; rather, they must be nominated by a dean, program chair or other academic official at their home institution. Students interested in being considered for nomination should inform their deans and department chairs.
