Students work independantly for a minimum of six hours (preferably at the school) as well as on a one-on-one level with their advisor on a weekly basis (days/times to be arranged). In addition students participate in Advanced Studio Seminar (3 hours/week) to discuss the various issues related contemporary art as well as professional practices such as developing an artist statement.
