This SOS is designed for students who are considering professions in the visual arts or arts education at any level, and who want to join a community of visual artists. Ideal candidates for this program will be interested in doing advanced work that addresses both object and image—working across 2-D and 3-D practices—and significant writing and research focused on some aspect of art.

Students will design their own projects, complete visual research and write papers appropriate to their artistic inquiry, share their research through presentations, work intensively in the studio together, produce a significant thematic body of work, and participate in demanding weekly critiques. The group will meet together weekly for technical demonstrations, student and faculty lectures, guest artist talks, critiques and field trips.
