A major component of the low-residency curriculum is the relationship between the student and their Artist-Teacher.

How it works

Each Fall and Spring, with the help of the core faculty, a student chooses an artist-teacher for their semester-long studio project. These projects are discussed and honed during the previous Summer and Winterim residencies with the help of the core faculty. Under the guidance of the artist-teacher, the student is expected to challenge and develop specific aspects of their practice while the artist-teacher engages the student in rigorous and critical dialogue concerning the conceptual and material issues they confront in their work.
