Join SVA Graduate Student Council!
Please join us for our first monthly Graduate Student Council meeting - next Wednesday September 7th, 2:30-3:30pm, Lazarus Center, RM 109
There is always an open forum at the end of the meetings for anyone to voice questions or share comments/concerns.
In the Fall we’ll be looking for program representatives to serve on the Council, and we are also looking for a third GSC Leader from a 1 year MA program. While the leadership roles are elected positions, the program representative positions are self-selected and voluntary. We hope you’ll consider getting involved!
Being part of GSC is a great way to get to know people and effect change in the MICA community - plus we always have doughnuts and coffee!

Fridays 1:00 - 5:00, Lazarus Room 006
Instructors: Heather Braxton, Sutton Demlong
Cross-Practice Critique is a diverse platform for MICA graduate students across programs to engage in critical discourse about their work and the work of their peers. The course will create an environment that fosters active participation, collaboration, writing, research and creative expression. Students will develop a variety of techniques for viewing, evaluating and responding to peer work, expanding their vocabulary to accommodate multiple disciplines. Students will participate in theoretical discussions concerning artistic practices and cultivate methods of verbal, visual and written communication in line with their personal artistic philosophy.
Heather Braxton is an interdisciplinary artist working within time-based media. Her work responds to systems of power, barriers, and boundaries. Sutton Demlong is a sculptor exploring the development of misshapen egos through a wide vocabulary of materials.
Take the Liberal Arts Elective CWRT 5559.01 Finding Words: Artist's Statements
Fridays 9:00 - 11:45, Bunting Room 460
Instructor: Abraham Burickson
Rediscover creative writing and find its connection to your work as an artist. This course will get you writing regularly, provide opportunities for reflection, inspiration, and interaction, help you develop passionate statements as an artist or designer, and build the confidence, awareness, and skills you need to write from a place of truth and strength. The course will look to poetry for its extreme compression and variety, to the manifesto for daring, and to fiction and reportage for characterization and more. Read artists, musicians, scientists, and others who have written memorably about their work.
Abraham Burickson is an artist, architect, designer: www.abrahamburickson.com.
