Student-Originated Studies: Visual Arts


Fall 2013 quarter

Taught by

visual arts, printmaking


Candidates for this program must have completed at least one year of Evergreen programs with substantive art components or at least two college-level courses in foundational drawing and work in 2D and 3D art plus liberal arts studies outside visual art. Foundational studies in art history, visual literacy, and art appreciation will be beneficial. Students need to be prepared to do intermediate and higher level art, writing and research work addressing the themes of the program.

This is an intensive full-time, one-quarter program designed for students ready for intermediate to advanced work in theory and practice in the visual arts. Students should be ready to work independently in the studio and in their research, but must also be interested in the learning community of a classroom. The academic content, lectures, and instruction are collaborations between the faculty and the students enrolled. Credits are earned through your project and research related to your project and program activities such as seminars, the Artist Lecture Series , field trips, and research presentations.

Students will work intensively on their proposed projects. They will produce a solid body of work, write papers, present their research to the program, work intensively in the studio together, produce a solid body of work, and participate in critiques. They should expect to work 20 - 30 hours per week outside of class meetings.
