Student-Originated Studies: Visual Arts


Fall 2012 quarter

Marilyn Frasca
Fields of Study
art history and visual arts
Preparatory for studies or careers in
art history and visual arts.

This SOS is an opportunity for students to design, develop, and complete a body of their own work in visual images.  As a support for this work, students will participate in weekly life drawing workshops (Tuesdays, 1-4), a weekly critique session (Wednesdays, 9-12) where students witness and discuss works-in-progress and topics in art history and imagemaking. In addition students will attend biweekly individual conferences with faculty to review work and imagine next steps. (Successful participation in these activities will be awarded 8 credits.) Each student will also identify a focus for his or her individual work in a discipline or medium with which they have some experience. This part of the program will allow for intermediate or advanced work and will require self-motivation, passion and a clearly articulated plan that can be completed in one quarter. Each student will be also responsible for a final presentation that showcases his or her independent work.  I will work with students in the beginning of fall quarter to aid them in the development of this plan.  Students will be awarded 8 credits (areas to be determined) for successful completion of this part of the program.

Our first meeting will be Tuesday, September 25 at 1:00 in the Drawing Studio of the Arts Annex.
