The Advanced Audio, Photography, and Video Projects courses provide students the opportunity to work with award-winning professionals in small group settings. Each term, CDS invites three established artists to teach the Advanced Projects Seminars, which are designed for individuals working on projects and seeking creative guidance. Participants share excerpts from their works-in-progress, and the courses are designed around their specific needs.
Students may take the course for credit more than once. Different artists teach the course each term, giving students the opportunity to hear multiple perspectives on their work. Certificate students are required to take a Projects course before enrolling in the Final Project Seminar; in this case the objective is to emerge with a nearly finished version of their project, ready for a final polish.
