This student-originated studies (SOS) program provides a semi-structured program opportunity for intermediate-to-advanced students to do focused work in making sculpture and furniture in community with other students, working in wood, metals, ceramics, and other media.  Interested students must have prior college-level experience in sculpture or furniture, and be technically proficient with the materials they propose to work with.  They should have a strong draft plan for studio work and supporting research prior to joining the program (see signature and application requirements).  The plan should focus on one particular sculptural or furniture form with attention to drawing, research, reflection, and documentation as part of the process.    

Students will be expected to establish a regular work routine in a shared studio space on campus with their peers.  Students and faculty will meet regularly for individual and group reviews of work in progress, and for technical demonstrations relevant to studio projects.  Seminar/workshops will address common themes around three-dimensional art-making and professional skills and practices.  Students will attend the Evergreen Artist Lecture series. Written work will include regular work logs, research summaries, artist statements and CVs.  Students will write short responses at work reviews, draft self-evaluations, and revise Academic Statements.  At the quarter’s end, students will collectively exhibit their work, make research presentations, collectively exhibit their work, and document their work and ideas for online portfolios.

Students may propose in-program internships as part of this SOS. Workshops, field trips, and interactions with the local arts community may be facilitated through the Creative Arts Incubator pilot project.
