Tyler Painting students are pushed to grow as artists and critical thinkers by a diverse faculty—all of whom are practicing artists and/or scholars themselves—with a broad range of expertise and a commitment to teaching and interdisciplinary cross-pollination. Students take full advantage of the school’s location in Philadelphia, a vibrant art center, to explore museums and galleries, find internships and launch creative practices. When they graduate, they join an alumni community that includes some of the most influential artists, thinkers and teachers of their time.
