Notes from the Studio

In addition to the Painting Lecture Series, our program offers two uniuque programs to foster students' interests and build professional skills:

Each event series features CCA Painting/Drawing faculty (and friends) in the intimate and casual setting on the San Francisco campus.

Space is limited and offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Notes from the Studio

Notes from the Studio is a one-hour lecture series featuring CCA Painting/Drawing faculty and friends.
The presentations function as a glimpse into the artist's studio with an emphasis on current process ideas to provoke often neglected topics such as the role of failed work that's overlooked, methods of working, frustrations and breakthroughs, and the studio itself.
This is a relaxed atmosphere in which students can take a break, meet with friends, have a snack, and sit in on various discussions about process.

Spring 2016 Lineup

Open Critique

The Open Critique series is an experimental public forum designed to expand the critical dialogue and concerns of the Graduate Fine Arts program at CCA. These critiques are led by current faculty and guest critics from the larger arts community including writers, curators, gallerists, and artists, among others.

It is our hope that through these critiques we will open up the conversation that occurs within the Graduate Fine Arts program to the larger community and simultaneously begin to engage the arts community in the critical dialogue happening within the school.

We welcome graduates, undergraduates, and faculty to attend.
