Find Your Creative Space.

You’ll find just about everything you need for your studio practice in the College’s Aron Art Center. The center features private art studios for every MFA student in the program, providing the foundation for a close, supportive community of artists.

Private Graduate Art Studios

In addition to your private studio, you’ll have access to fully equipped classroom studios for photography, painting, drawing, ceramics, and sculpture; a kiln room; wood and metal shops; and an intermedia/installation room. The campus also offers laboratories for work in video and new genres.

Two exhibition spaces draw visitors from around the Bay Area to the Aron Art Center. The Mills College Art Museum, with 6,000 square feet of gallery space, hosts exhibitions of works by graduating MFA students and visiting artists. The museum also curates shows featuring its own collection of more than 10,000 works of art from the first century BC to the present. Slide Space 123 features student exhibitions as well as work by artists who pose new problems and connect the Mills community with current trends across multiple disciplines.
