Program Description:

A LOCUS FOR CREATIVE PROBLEM SOLVING, FOSTERED BY CRITICAL THINKING, WITH AN EMPHASIS ON COMMUNITY.

The experience and exploration of embodied place is a central element of this distinctive program, encouraging students’ multi-dimensional relationship with their environment both here in the Tahoe Basin and within their own communities. Through an interdisciplinary approach to art-making, the program encourages participants to consider how we engage the material and social worlds of our respective environments, from personal, to political, to planetary.

This low residency program takes advantage of emerging technologies in education to combine two intensive ten-day residency periods each year in beautiful Lake Tahoe, full-time work in the student’s local studio, and a dynamic group of faculty, renowned visiting artists, professional mentors and peers. Residencies bring students, faculty and visiting artists together in a collaborative community to engage, critique and explore unfamiliar ideas and cross-disciplinary questions. Personalized mentorship and extensive studio time will help students develop the expressive and professional skills to realize their personal visions.

SNC’s interdisciplinary approach addresses the challenges and responsibilities faced by contemporary artists in an evolving global environment by focusing on the skill development, experimentation and collaborative dialogue that fosters creative solutions and the practice of art.
