KSA 295 Open Studio provides an opportunity for students, in consultation with a faculty member, to develop their design, time management and advanced studio skills through the production of a body of work. Emphasis will be on creative expression and the demonstration of the students’ technical and/or design abilities.
Students will prepare and submit a professional quality design brief/written proposal to the studio which will guide their course of action, indicating design theme/concept, illustrations, workplan and techniques. This proposal must be completed by the second week of the course. The design brief will form the basis of the contract for the work to be completed. Any changes to the contract must be made in consultation with faculty and presented in writing.
While students are expected to be primarily self directed, attendance and participation in scheduled classes is mandatory. Instructor(s) are available during class time for individual consultation specifically relating to the development of the body of work. There will be critiques and discussion of the work in progress.
Prerequisites: Completion of KSA Certificate or Diploma at Kootenay Studio Arts, or equivalent or by permission of the School Chair.
