GRFA 611 - Independent Studio I

Intended to assist students in establishing independent production in their major discipline while acquiring the ability to integrate studio production with the demands of off-campus life. At the conclusion of Summer I and subsequently, Winter Critique I, the student and faculty mentor agree on a plan of work to be pursued during the off-campus semester, which is a continuation of work begun in the previous semester. The students are required to propose a direction for their investigations and have access to off-campus studio space in which to carry out the proposal. Enrollment in the Independent Studio requires a commitment of 150 hours, equivalent to 10 hours of studio activity per week during the 15-week off-campus semester. The studio mentor meets with the student five times during the semester at three-week intervals, reviewing the student’s progress for a 1/2 hour session. The first meeting may take place at the mentor’s studio. The last meeting is the final critique of the semester, which takes place at the Winter Critique held at the University. Formerly FA 691
