About Our College

This school was started by Silas H. Rhodes and Burne Hogarth in 1947 as the Cartoonists and Illustrators School;[4][5] it had three teachers and 35 students,[6] most of whom were World War II veterans who had a large part of their tuition underwritten by the U.S. government's G.I. Bill.[7] It was renamed the School of Visual Arts in 1956[5] and offered its first degrees in 1972.[8] In 1983, it introduced a Master of Fine Arts in painting, drawing and sculpture.[9]
