GRFA 612 - Independent Studio II

3 credits
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 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 regular intervals, reviewing the student’s progress. Meetings take place at an agreed upon location (usually either the student or mentor’s studio or at school). The last meeting is the final critique of the semester, which takes place at the Spring Critique held at the University.
