Aileen Boyce holds her Master of Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. She began studying fine art in high school at Moorestown Friends School in the Art Studio Program. During this time she began taking weekend figure drawing classes at Moore College of Art in Philadelphia. It was in these classes that she discovered a connection to interpreting the human form.

​College of Art.

After graduating from Earlham, she moved to San Francisco and took advanced oil painting courses at the San Francisco Art Institute. She came back to the East coast for graduate school at the School of Visual Arts, where she received her MFA.
